The Shippensburg University women’s indoor track & field team heads to Edinboro this weekend for the 2020 Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference (PSAC) Indoor Track & Field Championships Saturday and Sunday from the Mike S. Zafirovski Sports and Recreation Dome.

Shippensburg had its streak of three consecutive conference championships snapped last season. The Raiders will pursue their league-best ninth conference title this weekend with 18 athletes qualified for competition in individual events.

SU boasts two top individual seeds: freshman Leah Graybill (Lititz, Pa./Warwick) in the 200 meters and freshman Sara McKean (Shinglehouse, Pa./Oswayo Valley) in the triple jump. The Raiders have a total of nine Top 8 seeds entering the weekend but just four total scoring performances returning from last season.

Competition for the league championship is expected to be spirited, with several teams in the mix for the title. Scoring projections have the conference champ at somewhere around 85-90 points, making the eventual momentum swings from certain events all the more impactful in deciding the victor.
