Tufts record and also improves her NCAA provisional qualifier from 5'5"
(1.65m). Kelly Allen (Norton, MA) continued her excellent first
season by winning the regional discus throw championship, twisting off a
140'9" (42.90m) best effort. She was also fourth in the shot put at 39'8

Senior Julia Feltus (Reading, MA) added seven points to the
team total with a fourth in the hammer throw (147'1"/44.83m) and a
seventh in the shot put with a 38'2 3/4" (11.65m) heave. Ferri and
