School Records:

Unique Tuberville '20

  • Hammer: 129 feet, 11 inches (39.59m)

Looking ahead: Although the Fords graduate NCAA qualifier Sophie Drew, Haverford does return a pair of All-Centennial Conference performers from this past season in rising junior Jessica Lopez and rising senior Unique Tuberville. In addition to her record in the hammer throw, Tuberville is also the program's indoor record holder for the weight throw. Lopez's name can be found all over the Haverford record book as she ranks third in school history in the 100 meters, fourth in the 200 meters, and fifth in the triple jump. Lopez was also part of the 4x100 meter relay that additionally featured Marisa Antinori, Naomi Fukuda, and Jasmine Reed. The Fords' 4x100 relay competed at the Penn Relays and posted the fifth-fastest time in school history (49.98 seconds) during the spring season. Griffin Kaulbach, Amalia Axinn, and Molly Hawkins are also rising juniors and join rising senior Jolie Jaycobs to form a solid mid-distance core in the coming years. That group has specifically excelled in the 4x800 relay during both the indoor and outdoor seasons.
