Ajla Glavasevic (Sr., 3.589, management) broke the school record to win the women's pentathlon at the Cornell Upstate Challenge, helping the Bulls to a second-place team finish. Glavasevic scored 3,758 points, seven more than Patrice Coney's 2008 total. Glavasevic won three of the five events on the day, taking the 60-meter hurdles (8.99), long jump (5.73m) and 800-meters (2:33.21) and setting personal bests in the hurdles, 800-meters and shot put (12.42m). The total is the highest in the Mid-American Conference this season.
