relay of senior Jess Mactas (New Canaan, CT), first-year
Andrea Ferri (Dracut, MA), junior Kaleigh Fitzpatrick (Lynnfield,
MA) and first-yera Logan Crane (Portland, ME) with a time of
50.01 seconds for third place behind BU and Northeastern. Crane was also
the only non-DI runner to make the final in the 100 meter dash, placing
eighth with a time of 13 seconds flat.
Strong fourth-place finishes were also submitted by
sophomore Jackie Ferry (Studio City, CA) in the 400 meters
(1:01.94) and by classmate Paula Dormon (Brockton, MA) in the
shot put (37' 1 1/4"). Dormon was first among non-DI throwers.
