GLASSBORO, N.J. – Graduate student Taylor Parker (Surrey, British Columbia/Semiahmoo) won the shot put and junior Success Edioma (Newark, N.J./East Side) scored a team-high 14 points to lead Felician University to a second-place finish out of eight teams at the Oscar Moore Open women's track & field meet, hosted by Rowan University on Friday.

The meet was run simultaneously with the Collegiate Track Conference Championship. The five institutions vying for the CTC crown had their results scored separately from the eight non-CTC teams, including Felician.

The Golden Falcons scored a program record 53 points in the event. They edged fellow Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference member Holy Family University by two points to finish second. York (N.Y.) College won the non-CTC division of the women's meet with 100 points.

Edioma was making her collegiate debut for Felician. She finished second in the long jump, covering 3.77 meters and earning eight points, and was third in the triple jump, picking up six points with a leap of 9.24 meters.

Parker became the first athlete in the two-year history of the Felician program to win an event. She bested two other non-CTC competitors in the shot put, tossing it 7.56 meters.

Two other Golden Falcons produced runner-up finishes. Junior Sabrina Roldan (Woodbridge, N.J/Woodbridge) was second in the 800-meter run with a time of two minutes, 38.51 seconds. Classmate Kate Rohsler (Fredon, N.J./Kittatinny Regional) produced the same result in the 1,500 meters (5:23.13).
