Player of the Week: Annie Goodridge
Sophomore sprinter and long jumper Annie Goodridge leaped her way into the record books Friday, Feb. 5, breaking a 15-year-old school record at Oberlin’s annual Crimson and Gold Invitational in the Heisman Fieldhouse. The Boston native leaped to a mark of 5.48 meters on her third attempt, which surpassed April Wynn’s previously held record of 5.42 meters. Goodridge would contribute to Oberlin’s winning efforts in the women’s 4×200-meter relay, running the third leg of the race with sophomore Rayna Holmes and first-years Emily Kelly and Ify Ezimora, finishing the contest in a time of one minute, 53.23 seconds. Goodridge also sprinted her way to a time of 8.58 seconds in the 60-meter dash to conclude the evening. Oberlin Track and Field travels to Baldwin Wallace University on Friday to compete in the Mid-February Meet.
