Nearing her own school record (42 feet, 5.5 inches) set back in 2016, Phillips placed second overall in the triple jump, and led the collegians, with a leap of 12.80 meters (42 ft., 0 in.). Her distance is top among the ASUN Conference and ranks in the top 30 nationally.
Later in the day, Howell raced to fifth place in the 800-meter run. Her time of 2:08.67 marks her second quickest finish in the event so far this season. Additionally, Howell tops the ASUN after a 2:06.80 finish at the Scarlet and White Invitational last weekend.
Phillips, Howell, and the rest of the Dolphins return to the track next weekend, Feb. 16-17, for the ASUN Conference Indoor Championships, hosted at Liberty University.
