LANCASTER, Pa. – The Franklin & Marshall women's indoor track team travels to Ursinus on Saturday for day one of the Centennial Conference Championships. The two-day event extends throughout the weekend and will finish up on Sunday evening.

The Diplomats look to improve on an eighth-place finish at last year's championships, which were won by Johns Hopkins. The Blue Jays have won the team title the last five years, dating back to 2010 when Haverford took the crown.

F&M returns a pair of medalists from last year's championships that boost Diplomat hopes heading into the weekend of competition. Rebecca Swisher leads the F&M charge, looking to four-peat in the pole vault. The senior has won the last three indoor titles and the last three outdoor titles to make it a perfect six-for-six conference championships in her first three years at F&M. Her height of 12'-5.5" is the best in the conference this year, 5.5" higher than her closest competitor.

Sophomore Alyssa Ward also returns for the Diplomats, hoping to improve on a pair of silver medals in the long jump and high jump at last year's indoor championships. Her height of 5'-1" ties her for the fourth-highest high jump in the conference entering the weekend, while her long jump of 16-8 is good for the eighth seed.

Morgan Gray joins Ward in contention for the jumps, seeded fifth in the triple jump and ninth in the long jump. The senior will look to surpass her performance at last year's outdoor championships, where she took second in the triple jump.

Newcomer Kaitlin Muccio is poised to make her mark in the sprints at her first CC championships. The freshman is seeded seventh in the 400-meter dash, and ranks 13th in the 200-meter dash.
