ROCK ISLAND, Ill. – The Albion College women's 4x100-meter relay continues to shine.
Competing in the Viking Olympics at Augustana College on Saturday, the Britons sailed to the finish in 49.10 seconds. Albion achieved a victory by more than a ½ second of Beloit College, its closest rival.
Hannah Almhiemid achieved Albion's best individual performance, winning the 100-meter hurdles in 16.46. She crossed the finish line nearly four tenths of a second ahead of the runner up.
Alexis McGinley finished second in the 200 dash at 26.07 seconds.
Joe and Julie Serra have given a $5 million leadership gift to launch a fundraising initiative to make two dreams a reality at Albion College. The first is a newly expanded fitness and student activity facility at the site of the current Dow Recreation and Wellness Center. The second is a new or renovated competition facility for the volleyball, men's basketball and women's basketball that currently call Kresge Gymnasium home.
The College is continuing to raise funds in support of both projects. To learn more, call 517/629-0446 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
