Meet Results

CLINTON, N.Y. -- Led by sophomore Logan Crane (Portland, ME), the Tufts University women's outdoor track & field team 120 points at the 2008 NESCAC Championships hosted by Hamilton College on Saturday to take second place at the meet. Tufts was half a point in front of Middlebury College, which finished third with a 119.6 score. Williams College won the title with 160.5 points.

Carne won two events and was second in another to lead the Jumbo effort. She led a 1-2 Tufts finish in the long jump with a distance of 5.32m (17'5"). Senior teammate Jenna Weir (New York, NY) was behind Crane with a 5.16m best (16'11"). Crane was also NESCAC's fastest in the 100 meters, running a time of 12.32 seconds in the finals. She piled second-place points in the 200 meters on to her contribution for the day with a time of 25.52 seconds.

The two victories by Crane were the only conference titles for the Jumbos, highlighting the overall team performance it took to place second. The Jumbos earned four second-place finishes overall. Senior co-captain Cat Beck (Brookline, NH), who had a whirlwind few days after running at the Penn Relays on Thursday night, was second in the 800 meters (2:15.03). Andrea Caruth (Vauxhall, NJ) had the team's top finish by a first-year with a excellent 64.59 time in the 400 meter hurdles. The 4x100 relay was also a runner up in 49.04 seconds.

Third-place points came from the high jump, triple jump and 1,500 meters. Senior Joyce Uang's (Medford, MA) best effort of 5'1" (1.55m) in the high jump, a 36'6 3/4" (11.14m) long jump from first-year Kanku Kabongo (Abington, MA) and senior Katy O'Brien's (North Easton, MA) 4:36.22 run in the 1,500 meters were all third at the meet.

Senior co-captain Kaleigh Fitzpatrick (Lynnfield, MA) and first-year Sarah Nolet (Los Altos, CA) were both double scorers for the Jumbos. Fitzpatrick was fifth in the long jump and sixth in the 400 meters, while Nolet was fifth in the javelin throw and sixth in the discus throw.

The Jumbos compete at the New England Division 3 Championships hosted by Coast Guard next weekend.
