COLLEGE WOMEN'S INDOOR TRACK & FIELD RESULTS
ECAC Division III Championships
Friday-Saturday, March 2-3, 2007
At Middletown, CT
MIDDLETOWN, Conn. -- Despite
resting several top athletes and sending a team of just 15 competitors
to the ECAC
Division III Women's Indoor Track & Field Championships, the Tufts
Jumbos scored 30 points and took seventh place. Wesleyan University
hosted the meet on Friday and Saturday.
The Jumbos got 10 points for winning the 4x200 meter relay in 1
minute, 46.84 seconds on Friday. That edged the foursome from Brockport State
that ran a 1:47 flat for second place. It was a tight race overall, with
fourth-place Springfield College finishing in 1:47.11. The Tufts
foursome was sophomore Aubrey Wasser (Richmond, VT), sophomore
Halsey Stebbins (Chicago, IL), senior Jess Mactas (New Canaan,
CT) and freshman Andrea Ferri (Dracut, MA). It was the fourth
relay title of the championship season for the Jumbos, following 4x4 and
4x2 wins at the New England Division III meet and an impressive distance
medley relay victory at the Open New England Championships (all
divisions) last week.
Senior tri-captain Sarah Crispin (Auburn, ME) provided
Saturday's highlight by running a 2:15.66 in the 800 meters, which took
second at the meet and is an NCAA provisional qualifying time. Also on
Saturday, the Jumbo 4x400 relay was also ECAC runner-up, timing 4:00.57,
just a nose behind College of New Jersey's 4:00.02.
Tufts also got a fifth place effort in the shot put from sophomore
Paula Dormon (Brockton, MA). Her best toss of 40 feet, 4 inches
scored four points for Tufts.
The Jumbos will now wait to see how many athletes qualify for the
2007 NCAA Division III Championships to be hosted by Rose-Hulman
Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, IN next weekend (Mar. 9-10).
