York, Pa. – As the Penn State Harrisburg inaugural track & field season begins to wind down, the Lions looked to add to their already memorable season at the 2015 Capital Athletic Conference Championships.

Another notable finish on the men's side was Josiah Owhe (Westbury, N.Y. / Westbury) who took sixth in the long jump with a distance of 6.60 meters.
Top finishes were tougher to come by for the women in Sunday's final rounds.
