Charles Ivey placed third in the 400 meter dash (49.21) and Kyle Shinn finished ninth in the 400 meter dash (50.12).

Matt Link added a fourth place finish in the 3,000 meter run with a time of 8:31.20.

Bryan Baumgartner provided a top 25 performance with a 24th place finish in the one-mile run (4:25.38). Logan Kempney and Nick Soto each added top 25 individual performances as well. Kempney ran the 3,000 meter run in 8:59.60 to place 20th while Nick Soto’s 12.62 meter shot put throw was also good for 20th.

The women got a stellar effort from Tabitha Bemis at teh meet.

Bemis posted a season-best in the long jump and qualified for NCAA Provisional with a jump of 5.75 meters, good for second. She also qualified for NCAA Provisional with a first-place finish in the triple jump (11.99 meters) and a second place in the 60 meter hurdles (8.75).

The senior also competed with Mia Sember, Allison Gibbens, and Kat Faller in the 4x400 meter relay team that finished first place with a time of 3:54.96.

Another Edinboro quartet placed in the top ten in that 4x400 meter relay, as Sophie Zielonka, Noelle Jurcak, Elizabeth Budzinski, and Breonica Smith placed ninth with a time of 4:15.16.

Gators open season

LEWISBURG — A pair of Gator distance runners opened up the indoor season in fine fashion at the 16th annual Bison Open, hosted by Bucknell University.

Competing in the 5,000 meter run, sophomore Logan Steiner and senior Kristina Martin each turned in strong performances against a deep field.

Steiner finished second among 43 runners, establishing a new personal-best time of 15:15.33, more than four seconds better than his previous PR, established with his third-place finish at the 2013 North Coast Athletic Conference Indoor Championships.

Martin took seventh in a field of 37, timed in 18:10.6, just two seconds off of her top indoor performance of the 2013 campaign, when she finished fourth at the conference championship.

A South Carolina woman was arrested recently after the McDonald’s employee let her daughter spend the day playing in a nearby park while she worked her shift. The decision has created a debate over “free-range” parenting and whether it’s a good idea or not. What’s your take?

I’m fine with it. If she cannot afford childcare, what choice does she have?
This is horrible and very bad parenting.
