Parshall Breaks 5,000-Meter Mark

SWARTHMORE, PA – The York College women's track & field team sent a pair of student-athletes to Monday's Tuppeny Twlight/Swarthmore Last Chance Meet.

In quite possibly her final collegiate race, senior distance standout Melody Parshall (Dover, Pa./Homeschooled) established a new record in the 5,000-meter run. Parshall notched a 19:25.75 to set a new program-best in the event. Parshall finishes her time in a Spartan uniform in fitting fashion after posting a terrific running career with the Green and White.

In the 400-meter dash, Spartan rookie Andrea Taylor (York, Pa./Central York) posted a 1:06.65.
