Part of the reason for improvement was freshman Sierra DeLeon, who set a College record in the 55-meter hurdles during her first-ever collegiate meet. She went on to break the record several more times before settling on 7.50 seconds and a second-place finish at the NCAC championship. Throughout the indoor season, DeLeon also set Kenyon records in 55-meter hurdles (8.42) and the 200-meter dash (26.09). Moving outdoors, she set the new College mark in the 100-meter hurdles (14.84). She took the NCAC indoor titles in both the 200-meter dash and the 55-meter hurdles.
In relay action, DeLeon, along with senior Cary Watts and junior Alexia Derkasch, helped set records in the 4x200 (1:48.25) and 4x400 (4:06.11). In field events, sophomore Ramelle Brown carved out new Kenyon records for the pole vault both indoors (10' 5 ½") and out (10' 3 ¼").
Another sophomore, Kirkley Doyle had a break-out year. She came out of nowhere to win the NCAC indoor championship in the 800-meter run and then backed it up by winning the 800 outdoor title, as well.
Watts and sophomore Leah Jacques did additional damage at the conference level in the multi-events. Watts took third place in both the pentathlon and heptathlon, while Jacques took second-place finishes during indoor competition in the long jump and the pentathlon.
Kenyon wound up scoring 112 points at the indoor championship, just missing third place by a couple of points. The Ladies' previous best championship output was 109 points scored at the 1985 championship. At the outdoor championship, Kenyon's 81 points were the most since the 1999 team scored 90.75 points.
