LANCASTER, Pa. – Franklin & Marshall women's track and field concludes its indoor season this weekend at the Centennial Conference (CC) Championships, hosted by Ursinus. Competition begins Saturday morning and will conclude on Sunday evening.

The Diplomats aim for another year of improvement after finishing seventh last year and eighth the year before. Johns Hopkins comes into the weekend as the favorite after winning the last six team titles.

Alyssa Ward looks to round off a solid indoor season, and is seeded in the top three of all three jump events. In the triple jump, Ward's distance of 11.08 meters (36'-4.25") is good for the second seed. She also enters the long jump as the second seed, qualifying with a mark of 5.16 meters (16'-11.25"). She will be joined in that event by Sabrina Piccinini, seeded eighth at 4.94 meters (16'-2.5"). Ward will also compete in the high jump, where her height of 1.55 meters (5'-1") is good for third.

Rachel Wylie is set to compete at her first CC Championships, and will hunt for gold in three events. In the 60-meter hurdles, an event that saw Wylie reset the school record earlier this year, the freshman is seeded second with a time of 9.37. Aleksandra Kiszka is close behind, seeded 10th at 9.89.

In the 400-meter dash, Wylie is again seeded second with a time of 1:00.70. Kaitlin Muccio, the four seed, is hot on her heels with a time of 1:01.07. Kiszka and Wylie again meet in the 200-meter dash, this time with Kiszka leading the way (seeded seventh, 27.57) followed by Wylie (eighth, 27.62).
