"Baber, along with fellow sprinters Nicole Stein, Jackie Boehmler and Chenae White, took first place in the 4 x 200 meter relay at the Fred Wilt Invitational with a time of 1:48.47. Their time broke the previous school record of 1:49.05, set by the relay team of Brittany Brand, Katie Gernand, Jessica Pond and Nicole Stein in 2007."

"Maggie is one of our top sprinters and is having a great year," DePauw head track coach Kori Stoffregen says of Baber, a sophomore. "She is a little banged up right now but we hope to have her going again for the outdoor season. She is fun to coach and works very hard. The best thing about Maggie is that she balances her athletics and academics very well. Anderson 09 027.jpgShe is a great student."

At the Anderson meet, DePauw totaled 109 points and finished second to Calvin's 140. DePauw's distance medley relay (pictured at right) of Claire Hollis, Emily Reavis, Alison Case and Lauren Reich finished second in 12:01.3 but did so in an NCAA provisionally-qualifying time.
