INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - The Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference women's indoor track and field teams competed across the Midwest last weekend.

The Fightin' Engineers placed fourth at DePauw while following that up with a sixth place performance at Illinois Wesleyan. Senior Lauren London set a Rose-Hulman record with a long jump performance that ranks No. 9 in NCAA Division III this season at the Keck Select Meet hosted by Illinois Wesleyan last week. London recorded the first 18-foot long jump in RHIT history with the 18' 3 3/4" mark, which placed second in the event behind by a Washington U. competitor who recorded the nation's No. 2 ranked mark this season.
