Steelman, Tardy excel in collegiate debuts

Hannah Steelman and Tia Tardy made venerable marks on the Maine high school running scene over their remarkable careers, and they both kicked off their collegiate debuts in impressive fashion on Friday.

Tardy, a Lincoln native and graduate of Mount Desert Island High School, was the No. 2 runner for Bucknell University as it won its season-opening invitational while Orono native Steelman paced Wofford College to a runner-up finish.

Steelman’s opening performance turned out to be a record-breaking one, as she completed a 5K race in 17 minutes, 37.5 seconds, the fastest in the history of Wofford’s program.

Orono runner makes quick transition to Division I cross-country

...Two races into her freshman campaign, Steelman has already cracked Wofford’s record books, recording the fastest 5-kilometer (3.1 miles) time in program history during a race at Furman University. Her time of 17 minutes, 37.5 seconds, was good for second overall on the course that will host the Southern Conference championships this fall.

“It was just one of those races where coach just wanted to see where we were all at,” said Steelman, who grew up in South Carolina but starred at Orono High School and won multiple team and individual state championships. “It worked out pretty well.”
