Saturday, December 2, 2006
At Boston, MA
BOSTON -- The Tufts 2006-07 women's indoor track & field team began its season with a non-scoring meet, the Husky Carnival, hosted by Northeastern University on Saturday afternoon. The Jumbo performance was marked by several top 10 finishes, including some by newcomers.
The best Tufts finish was delivered by junior Joyce Uang (Medford, MA) in the high jump. Her best effort of 5 feet, 2 inches tied for second place at the meet featuring competitors from Divsions I, II and III.
Tufts runners took two fourth places at the meet. Sophomore Jackie Ferry (Studio City, CA) debuted her season by running a strong 2 minute, 24.10 seconds in the 800 meter run. She was followed closely by teammate
Kate Makai (Brookfield, CT) in sixth place with a 2:24.42 finish. In the 3,000 meter run, senior
Sarah Crispin (Auburn, ME), fresh off running for the Tufts cross country squad that took fifth place at the NCAA Championship, opened the winter season with a 10:37.95 for fourth place. She was also supported in sixth by teammate
Susan Allegretti (Crown Point, IN) with a 11:02.17 time.
Several freshman indicated that they would be immediate contributors to the team with their efforts on Saturday.
Logan Crane (Portland, ME) was 10th in the preliminaries among a talented field in the 55 meter dash, just missing the final. She was also eighth in the long jump with a best effort of 16 feet, 5 3/4 inches. Like Crane, classmate
Andrea Ferri (Dracut, MA) was the first Division III finisher in the 200 meter dash with a time of 27.41 seconds.
Kerry Virgien (Los Angeles, CA) also had a noticeable first impression with a 1:22.33 in the 500 meter dash for ninth place, again tops among small college entrants.
Sophomore Katie Rizzolo (Franklin, MA), another national cross country competitor, was ninth in the 5,000 meter run (18:41.79). The Jumbos also had two competitors among the top 10 in the throws.
Paula Dormon (Brockton, MA), last year's surprise freshman sensation, took eighth in the shot put with a 39' 4" best.
Sarah Martin (Woonsocket, RI), the Tufts record-holder in the weight throw, finished fourth in the event with a 43' 7" mark on Saturday.
