Freeman also ran a leg in the Dolphins’ school record distance medley that clocked in at 11:36.48.
Charles received A-Sun Indoor Field Athlete of the Week for the first time this season and the fourth time in her career. She had the performance of the season winning four out of the five events in the pentathlon to win with a total of 4,049 points. Her point total ranks in the top 10 nationally for the event in 2013.
