Mount Union's women's track and field team had a pair of season-bests in last chance meets this weekend before next week's NCAA Indoor Championships.

The distance medley relay team of Emily Henson (Hamilton / Badin), Cortni Arp (Copley), Sarah Mason (Alliance / Marlington) and Hilary Reigle (Madison) ran a season-best time of 12:02.21 at the Tufts Final Qualifier in Boston, Mass.

Daijana Johnson (Alliance) ran her season-best time in the 60 meter dash of 7.83 to win the event at the Ohio Northern Last Chance Meet in Ada.

Both marks will be just short of qualifying for the NCAA Championships.

Mount Union is expected to have 10 men and one female qualified when the field is announced for next week's NCAA Championships at the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston, Mass. The men's team, currently ranked fourth in the nation, won the national team title a year ago.
