MEDFORD -- Nine members of the Tufts University women's outdoor track & field team placed among the top three in the individual and/or relay events at the 2008 New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Championships hosted by Hamilton College last Saturday (Apr. 26). Their top-three placements earn each Jumbo All-NESCAC honors.

Sophomore Logan Crane (Portland, ME) earned four All-Conference awards by winning the long jump (5.32m) and 100 meter dash (12.32 seconds), and with runner-up efforts in the 200 meter dash (25.52) and as part of the 4x100 meter relay (49.04).

Two Jumbos collected All-NESCAC recognition in two events. Senior Jenna Weir (New York, NY) was second in both the 4x100 and in the long jump (5.16m). Sophomore Andrea Ferri (Dracut, MA) was also a part of the 4x1 and was third individually in the 100 meter hurdles (15.91).

Tufts competitors garnering All-NESCAC awards in for second-place finishes in an event were senior co-captain Cat Beck (Brookline, NH) in the 800 meters (2:15.03), first-year Andrea Caruth (Vauxhall, NJ) in the 400-meter hurdles (1:04.59), senior co-captain Kaleigh Fitzpatrick (Lynnfield, MA) with the 4x100 relay. First-year Kanku Kabongo (Abington, MA) in the triple jump (11.14m), senior Katy O'Brien (North Easton, MA) in the 1,500 meters (4:36.22) and senior Joyce Uang (Medford, MA) in the high jump (1.55m) were honored for their third-place efforts.

Coach Kristen Morwick's Tufts team placed second at the NESCAC meet scoring 120 points as a team.
