“The weather has been a huge factor for us,” said Malvern Coach Jeremy Maher. “We went for two weeks without a meet, but the girls really showed up for the Larry Cogan Invitational. Zoe set the meet record in the 100, Kesli threw a season best in the shot put and Laura Rodgers stepped up big time in the 800 and 3200, Goldsworthy’s time in the hurdles continues to improve and she excels in the high jump. Foster broke 15 feet in the long jump for the first time and ran well in the 200. The 4×4 relay team showed a lot of guts pushing to score points to help us place third overall. We are excited to have a week with multiple meets to continue to improve and get ready for the IVC (Inter Valley Conference) league meet.”
