ATLANTA, Ga.--- The Emmanuel Women's Track and Field team competed at their second outdoor track meet of the season at the Emory Classis Invitational on March 28 and 29.

The Lady Lions competed remarkably well this weekend, getting two more NCCAA National qualifiers.Lindsey Toole, who had previously qualified in the 10,000 meters, qualified in the 5,000 meters running a time of (19:02.62). Likewise, Samantha Cortese who had already qualified in two events (shot-put and javelin), qualified in the discus throw throwing (35.03 meters). Also like the Lion's, the Lady Lion's had many personal bests and many Lady Lions were seconds from qualifying from nationals.

"PR'ing (person record) in the 5k by 12 seconds really boosted my confidence since at the past races I hadn't done very well," shares Lindsey Toole. "I am so excited that I met the qualifying time for NCCAA and get to advance to nationals. I give all the glory to God and can't wait to see what He has in store for me at the next meet."

The next Men's Outdoor Track and Field meet will be held at Furman University for the Furman Invitational on April 12.
