Women’s Indoor Track and Field Has Strong Showing at Wesleyan Tri-Meet

Middletown, Conn. - The Trinity College women's indoor track and field squad had a successful day of competition at Wesleyan University on Friday evening in a tri-meet also featuring the Connecticut College Camels. The Bantams conclude their 2018 portion of the schedule and return to action on January 19th at the Smith College Invitational.

Junior Morgan Hallow (Charlotte, N.C.) had another solid outing, winning both the 200 and 400-meter. Her 200 time came in at 26.48, just edging out classmate Katie Marlow-Benedick (Weston, Mass.) who finished in 26.53. Hallow bested the field in the 400 by over two seconds, turning in the only sub-minute time at 59.79.
