FAIRFAX, Va. - The George Mason track and field team added four new ECAC, three new IC4A and several personal records at the Mason Last Chance meet on Sunday afternoon at the Fieldhouse.
Highlighting the performances was junior Mandissa Marshall who again improved on her school record height in the pole vault. Marshall posted a height of 4.10m for the personal, school and ECAC qualifying mark. Junior Dominique Graham also posted a PR in the high jump with a height of 1.74m, besting her previous ECAC qualifying mark and moving her to third all-time in the Mason record books. The final PR and ECAC qualifier on the women's side was sophomore Aneesha Scott, who ran a time of 7.68 in the 60m.
Also qualifying for the ECAC Championships next weekend was senior TaNay Chandler, who posted a time of 7.68 in the prelims of the 60m dash. PR's on the day for the Patriots included freshman Jasmine Moser in the 60m hurdles (9.32-prelims) and sophomore Megann Kaiser in the pole vault (3.45m).

Dietrick tied his PR, while Daugherty set a new PR, and the height stands seventh all-time at Mason. The other IC4A qualifying mark came from senior Travaughn Baker-Johnson, who jumped 7.11m in the long jump, a personal-best mark and the top distance on the day.
