WILMINGTON, Ohio -- A little snow could not hold back the Heidelberg University outdoor track & field teams, as both the women and the men won the #JennaStrong Invitational hosted by Wilmington College. The men had a narrow win in a 12-team field while the women cruised to victory in the 10-team field.
