All-New England Indoor Championships
At Boston University

Meet Results

BOSTON - The Tufts University 4x400 Relay team of senior captain Emily Bersin (Orleans, MA), sophomore Rachel Bloom (Sharon, MA), junior Sika Henry (Upper Montclair, NJ) and senior captain Jessica Trombly (Nashua, NH) improved their national-best time in the event to highlight Jumbo action at the All-New England Indoor Track & Field Championships hosted by Boston University on Friday and Saturday.

On the banked track at BU, Tufts ran a time of 3 minutes, 52.82 seconds to take third among a field of Division I, II and III teams. Rhode Island and Boston College were the only foursomes to finish in front of the Jumbos. The time was converted to 3:53.62, giving the team automatic qualifying status for the upcoming NCAA National Championship meet. They are the first 4x4 to qualify automatically this winter.

The Distance Medley Relay had a strong race as well at BU. The line-up of sophomore Becca Ades (Shelburne, VT), senior captain Lauren Caputo (Belmont, MA), freshman Sarah Crispin (Auburn, ME) and sophomore Megan Sears (Washington Depot, CT) ran a 12:09.75, which converts to 12:10.95 for ninth in the nation. They were seventh at the All-New England meet, scoring two points.

Tufts scored 12.5 points overall to place 16th at the All-New England's. Trombly took sixth in the 55 meter hurdles with a time of 8.61 seconds in the final. Trombly also scored a school record in the 200 meters, running a time of 25.59 seconds in the preliminaries to beat out the old mark of 25.75 that she shared with Vera Stenhouse. Henry added a point and a half to the total by tying for seventh place in the High Jump with a best of 5 feet, 3 inches.

UConn won the team title with 112 points.
