Northampton, Mass. - Junior Morgan Hallow (Charlotte, N.C.) set an indoor program record in the 400-meter dash as the Trinity College women's track and field squad opened up the 2018-19 season on Saturday at the Smith Winter Classic in Northampton. The Bantams return to action next week for the Wesleyan Small Invitational. 

"It was a ton of fun to get out there and watch our student-athletes compete," said Head Coach John Michael Mason (1st Season) after the meet. "Everyone is striving to get better and to help their teammates get better. There were a lot of solid performances today that we can build upon to have a successful season."

Hallow finished first in the 400 by nearly four seconds, turning in a finals time of 58:03 which stands as the new Trinity women's indoor record. The Bantams saw numerous other strong performances in a successful season opener. Also in the 400, sophomore Emma Buckley (Hanover, Mass.) finished third, while junior Katie-Marlow-Benedick turned in a second-place effort in the 60-meter dash with a 7.91 finals time. Hallow and Marlow-Benedick went neck-and-neck in the 200-meter dash with Hallow claiming first place by just .20 seconds.  First-year Bridget McKiernan (Providence, R.I.) finished second in the 600-meter run in a race that came down to the wire, turning in a finals time of 1:47.90. 

In distance events, senior Caroline Sullivan (South Hadley, Mass.) finished second in the 5,000-meter run while rookie Izzy Montes de Oca (Carpinteria, Calif.) had a strong track debut with a third-place finish in the mile, just three seconds off the lead. Fellow rookie Ally Conde (Danielson, Conn.) had a strong showing in the shot put in her first-ever collegiate action, bringing home a third-place toss of 9.70m.
