Rambler on a Rampage
Trying to break one particular Loyola University Chicago track and field record — and failing — has indirectly led to record success in other events for Candice Carajohn.
Carajohn, a Loyola junior and Seneca native, had hopes of breaking the school's indoor record at Indiana University's Gladstein Invitational on Jan. 20. Her sixth-place pentathlon score of 2,627 fell short of the all-time mark, but while completing the pentathlon, Carajohn set a new Loyola indoor record in the long jump with a 5.49-meter leap.
Since then, Carajohn has slowly shifted her focus to a smaller number, relatively speaking, of events. She presently competes in the long jump, the triple jump, the 400-meter hurdles, the 4x100-meter relay and the 4x400-meter relay. The narrowed slate has resulted in Carajohn twice being named the Loyola Female Athlete of the Month, earning Horizon League Female Field Athlete of the Week honors on April 10 and in her breaking and re-breaking numerous Loyola records.
