Trinity Women's Outdoor Track And Field Wins Twelve Events At Home Invitational

Hartford, Conn. – Junior Morgan Hallow (Charlotte, N.C.) won all three sprints, as the Bantams hosted the Trinity College Women's Outdoor Track and Field Invitational and won 12 events on a rainy afternoon on Jessee/Miller Field.  Hallow won the 100-meter dash with a time of 12.52, the 200-meter dash with a time of 25.33, and the 400-meter dash at 59.88.  Junior Katherine Bullock (Cape Neddick, Maine) also won multiple events with a first-place long jump of 15'07.75" and a winning triple jump of 33'10.75".  Some field events were held indoors.

Trinity won every individual race except the 100-meter hurdles, including first-place times of 2:24.50 by first-year Bridget McKiernan (Providence, R.I.) in the 800 meters, 4:57.65 by classmate Isabella Montes De Oca (Carpinteria, Calif.) in the 1,500 meters, and 19:14.49 by senior Caroline Sullivan (South Hadley, Mass.) in the 5,000 meters.  Bantam junior Hannah Neufeld (Burlington, Mass.) won the 400-meter hurdles by 3.7 seconds with a time of 1:08.02, and teamed with Hallow, junior Katie Lazur (East Hanover, N.J.), and sophomore Emma Buckley (Hanover, Mass.) for a first-place time of 49.65 in the 4x100-meter relay.  In jumps, Trinity sophomore Isabella Bruno (Winchester, Mass.) cleared 5'02.25" to win the high jump with a distance of 19'09" and rookie Marina Flandrick (Boulder, Colo.) won the pole vault at 11'00.25".  Bantam junior Peace Kabari (Manchester, N.H.) added a heave of 45'10.00" in the shot put that was over 15'06" further than the second-place distance.

"Today was a great display of our team character," said Trinity Head Coach John Michael Mason. "I was proud that we organized a good meet despite extremely rainy conditions, and everyone chipped in to make it a positive experience. The weather did not prevent the team from putting up some pretty good results either. We are excited to enter championship season on a high note."
