PRINCETON, N.J. - In the final tune-up before the Indoor Heptagonal Championships next weekend, the University of Pennsylvania women's track & field team competed at the Princeton Invitational on Saturday.

Sophomore Heather Bong highlighted the meet for the Quakers with a win in the 60 meters. She was tops in her heat and second overall in the preliminaries with a time of 7.83. Then, in the finals, Bong won the event with a career-best time of 7.76.

Senior Davielle Brown matched a career-best in the pole vault. She already holds second place in the school record book and equaled that mark on Saturday. She cleared the bar at 3.80 meters (12 feet, 5 3/4 inches) on her final attempt and finished second. She came up just short of becoming the first Penn female to clear 3.90 meters.

In the long jump, freshman Gillian Berger set a personal best and finished third. Her final jump of the day was the best of her collegiate career thus far. She landed at 5.56 meters (18-03 ft.).

Freshman Shannon McCarthy was fourth in the 800 meters at 2:18.21 while classmate Gabriella Cuccia was fifth at 2:18.27.

Many of the Quakers had the weekend off in preparation for the 2013 Indoor Heptagonal Championships which are scheduled for Feb. 23-24 at Harvard's Gordon Track.
