EDGEWOOD COLLEGE women's track 2017 SEASON PREVIEW

After a pair of NACC titles in the indoor distance medley relay and Jenny Larson's outdoor 1500m win last season, the Eagles women's track and field team is back for more with eight of their 10 NACC Championship point scorers returning. Last season's fifth-place indoor NACC finish was their best since 2012 and also marked the first time since 2012 the Eagles won both an indoor relay and outdoor individual NACC championship in the same season.
