Meet Results
Logan Crane topped 18-feet in the long jump to nationally qualify
 

NORTH EASTON -- Junior Logan Crane (Portland, ME) and sophomore Stephanie McNamara (North Attleborough, MA) both recorded NCAA Championships provisional qualifying marks in their respective events to lead the Tufts women's outdoor track & field team at the Skyhawk Invitational hosted by Stonehill College on Saturday. The Jumbos placed fourth out of 15 teams at the event, scoring 80 points.

Crane surpassed the 17'11 1/2" NCAA provisional mark in the long jump with an 18' 1/4" (5.49m) for second place at the meet. She was behind only Division I Rhode Island's TyLynn Graham (18'2 1/4"/5.54m). McNamara was a run-away winner in the 5,000 meter run with a 17:16.73 time, easily eclipsing the 17:35 provisional time. Second-place Mary Najarian from Rhode Island came along in 18:43.54, 1:27 behind McNamara, who qualified in the 1,500 last weekend.

The Tufts 4x800-meter relay group of first-year Amanda Parker (North Attleborough, MA), senior tri-captain Jackie Ferry (Studio City, CA), sophomore Jen Yih (Palo Alto, CA) and sophomore Amy Wilfert (Westborough, MA) scored second-place points with their 9:53.54 time.

First-year Anya Price (Natick, MA) was third in the 3,000 steeplechase (12:12.32), as was sophomore Kanku Kabongo (Abington, MA) with a 36'7 3/4" (11.17m) triple jump and senior tri-captain Paula Dormon (Brockton, MA) with a 39'8 3/4" (12.11m) shot put.

Coach Kristen Morwick's Jumbos are at Northeastern University next Saturday for the Solomon Invitational.
