The women's outdoor track and field team captured its 13th straight Middle Atlantic Conference
Championship with a first-place team finish at the 2005 MAC Championship meet hosted by
Widener University. The Greyhounds posted a team score of 191, 60.5 points ahead of runner-up
Susquehanna University. Head coach Doug Pollard was named the MAC Women's Coach of the
Year following the meet. Moravian also won the 2005 MAC Indoor Championship, its 10th consecutive
title, in February.
Moravian's individual champions included senior Chelsea Mullins winning her first MAC
Outdoor individual title with a first-place finish in the 10,000-meter run in a time of
37:47.91; senior Kirsten Rotzell capturing first place in the triple jump for the fourth
straight season with a winning distance of 11.46 meters (37 feet, 7¼ inches), which provisionally
qualified her for the NCAA Division III National Championships; sophomore Erin Recker breaking
her own school record in the 100-meter dash with a first-place finish in a time of 12.33
seconds, which also provisionally qualified her for the NCAA Division III National Championships;
and Rotzell winning her second championship of the meet, taking first in the long jump
with a leap of 5.21 meters (17 feet, 1¼ inches).
Recker and Rotzell joined up with sophomores Kathleen McCarron and Suzanne Tamlyn to set
a school record and win the 4x100-meter relay in 48.50 seconds. The time also provisionally
qualified the quartet for the NCAA Championships. However, none of the Greyhounds qualifiers
was invited to the NCAA Championship meet in 2005.
