LYNCHBURG -- Senior Amanda Theall led the Shenandoah University indoor track and field teams Friday at the 2013 Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Championships Friday with one win and one runner-up performance.

Theall, coming off of a double-championship performance last week at the Mason-Dixon Indoor Championships, won the weight throw and was second on the shot put for coach Andy Marrocco.

Theall's outstanding day helped the SU women to a sixth-place finish at the meet.

The Hornets had 29 points to finish 12 points behind fifth-place Virginia Wesleyan.

Theall opened her day with the win in the weight, throwing it 15.11 meters, to win her second straight ODAC title in the event.

She then had a toss of 11.34 meters in the shot to post the second-place showing.

Freshman Breana Hagwood also had a runner-up finish at the meet, finishing second in the 60-meter high hurdles with a school record time of 9.42 seconds.

Senior Jaclyn Mohlmann also qualified for the finals in the 60-meter high hurdles and finished sixth at 9.66 seconds.

On the men's side, junior Evan Griffin was sixth in the shot put. His team took eighth overall.
