Fifth-year senior Dannah Hayward returns for her final go-around in the 400m hurdles after earning a pair of All-East honors in the event thus far, placing sixth last spring and seventh as a freshman in 2013. Junior Claudine Andre placed sixth in the high jump as a freshman in 2015. Senior Courtney Foster took home the gold medal in the 400m at the 2017 ECAC indoor meet back in March.
