Championship Results

GORHAM, Me. -- Bolstered by four individual and two relay titles, the Tufts University women's indoor track & field team scored 109 points to finish in second place at the 2007 New England Division III Championships hosted by the University of Southern Maine on Saturday.

Junior Cat Beck (Brookline, NH) won two events to lead the Jumbos. She ran the mile in 4 minutes, 57.88 seconds to win that race and  finished the 3,000 meters in 9:52.70 for the victory. It was the second year in a row that she won the mile at this meet.

Also winning the same event for the second straight season at this meet was senior tri-captain Sarah Crispin (Auburn, ME), who won the 1,000 meters in a school-record 2:53.87 time. That smashes the 2:59 mark that she ran last year. Also involved in the Tufts dominance of the middle distance events on Saturday was junior Katy O'Brien (North Easton, MA), who won the 800 meters with a 2:16.89 finish. That just gets her under the NCAA provisional qualifying time of 2:16.90.

The Jumbos continued their great success in the relay events at this meet, winning the 4x2 and 4x4 titles. Sophomore Aubrey Wasser (Richmond, VT), sophomore Halsey Stebbins (Chicago, IL), senior Jess Mactas (New Canaan, CT) and freshman Andrea Ferri (Dracut, MA) combined for a 1:48.08 time that edged Springfield College at the finish line of the 4x200 relay. The 4x4 of junior Kaleigh Fitzpatrick (Lynnfield, MA), Wasser, Crispin and Ferri gave the Jumbos their fifth straight victory in the event at the New England Division III meet. Their time of 4:02.77 nipped Bowdoin.

Fitzpatrick was the runner-up in the 400 meter dash (58.81 seconds). Freshman Logan Crane (Portland, ME) was third in 55 meter dash in a time of 7.38 seconds that is 0.05 off the NCAA provisional mark. The 4x8 relay of senior tri-captain Kate Makai (Brookfield, CT), junior Anna Shih (Pittsford, NY), sophomore Jackie Ferry (Studio City, CA) and O'Brien also notched a third with a 9:31.26 time.

Williams College won the team championship with 151 points.
