 Athlete Spotlights
Kalane Abbey:
With many amazing freshmen performances so far this year, Kalane Abbey has beenputting together one of the most solid and well rounded years of the bunch. During theindoor season she made her mark in the 400 meter dash, moving up to fifth on the AllTime list with a 57.38. She additionally could be found on the anchor of the schoolrecord 4x400 meter relay. In her first meet during the outdoor season she made a markon the outdoor track record books taking over the ninth position on both the 200 metersand 400 meters lists.
Aaron Brooks:
Trying to figure out who the best thrower in UMBC history can be a difficult task with alarge collection of superb athletes having entered the circle. However, senior AaronBro
oks’ name must in the conversation. This past winter he smashed his school record inthe shot put by over two feet, moving it up to 53’ 6.25”. It appears to be only a matter of 
time before he takes down the outdoor shot put record and he could make a run in thediscus, an event where he is the third best performer in school history. Brooks also addssupport in the weight throw (#7 All Time) and the hammer (#6 All Time). With a seasonleft before graduation, he could begin to strengthen his grip on the record books.
