Willamstown, Mass. - Senior Morgan Hallow (Charlotte, N.C.) won the 400-meter dash, finished second in the 200-meter dash, and helped two relays take fourth, as the Trinity College Bantams tied Bowdoin College for fourth in the team standings of the New England Division III Women's Outdoor Track and Field Championships at Williams College this weekend.  Trinity totaled 50 points as a team, tying the Polar Bears and edging sixth-place Connecticut College by two.  Williams won the team title with 109.95 points, followed by MIT in second with 101.30, and Rhode Island College in third with 65. Hallow won the 400 meter with a Trinity-record time of 56.17, while junior Peace Kabari (Manchester, N.H.) recorded a first-place distance of 47'01.75" in the shot put, also a new Trinity record, to give the Bantams two New England Champions.  

Hallow bested the second-place runner by .54 seconds to take the 400-meter title, while Trinity senior tri-captain Lauren Barrett (Peabody, Mass.) highlighted Friday's session with a third-place time of 38:24.36 in the 10,000-meter run. Bantam sophomore Emma Buckley (Hanover, Mass.) scored with an eighth-place finish in 100-meter dash and recorded a personal best of 12:36 during prelims the day before.

Kabari won the shot put title by well over two inches, and Trinity junior Devan Walsh (Danvers, Mass.) came in fourth place in the javelin throw with a nationally competitive distance of 141'04.00". In relays, Trinity registered fourth-place finishes in both the 4x100- and the 4x400-meter races.  Hallow, Buckley, and juniors Hannah Neufeld (Burlington, Mass.) and Katie Lazur (East Hanover, N.J.) came in fourth in the 4x100-meter relay with a time of 48.50.  Hallow, Lazur, Buckley, and senior Anna Barnes (Storrs, Conn.) added a fourth-place time of 3:53.70 in the 4x400-meter relay. The 4x400-meter relay time shattered the previous Trinity record, while all eight Bantams earn All-New England recognition for the their outstanding performances.
