Sophomore Erika Moriarty (Kutztown, PA/Kutztown) looks to continue the success she found last season as she finished in the top 10 three times in six meets, placing 4, 6 and 3.

The Golden Bears will be competing in five events this season, with the first meet taking place in Salisbury, MD on Sept. 3 at the Salisbury Invitation, followed by meets on Sept. 16, Sept. 30, Oct. 8 and Oct. 22.
