WESTFIELD -- Six members of the Tufts University women's track & field
team competed at Westfield State College's Jerry Gravel Classic on
Saturday. The Jumbos won two events, junior Amy Wilfert (Westborough,
MA) in the 1,500 meters and first year thrower Kelly Allen
(Norton, MA) in the discus.
In the first scored meet of the outdoor season, Tufts placed sixth
out of 18 teams by scoring 44 points. Twenty total points came from the
two winners. Wilfert ran 4:44.97 in the 1,500 meters, winning by nearly
four seconds. Allen's best discus toss of 134'8" (41.04m) won by a foot.
Allen had three top-five finishes overall, also taking third in the shot
put (38'3 1/2"/11.67m) and fifth in the hammer throw (126'1"/38.44m).
Junior Kanku Kabongo (Abington, MA) also scored third in the
long jump, with a best effort of 15'3 1/4" (4.65m). Senior Julia
Feltus (Reading, MA) was right behind Allen in the shot put for
fourth place, helping the Jumbos score 11 points in the event with a
37'1 1/4" (11.51m) toss.
Tufts hosts the annual Snowflake Classic next Saturday in Somerville.
