BRUNSWICK, Me. -- With many of their top competitors resting, the Tufts University women's indoor track & field team scored 22 points for 15th place at the ECAC Division III championships hosted by Bowdoin College on Friday and Saturday. Next up for head coach Kristen Morwick's team is the NCAA National Championship Meet on March 12-13 at the University of Wisconsin-Whitewater.

The Distance Medley team of sophomore Rebecca Ades (Shelburne, VT), sophomore Megan Sears (Washington Depot, CT), freshman Sarah Crispin (Auburn, ME) and senior captain Lauren Caputo (Belmont, MA) placed fifth in 12:11.33.
