Women's Track & Field: Lots of PRs at our Fourth Annual Invitational

We were excited to see tons of friends,  family and alumni show up at our meet this past Friday. It was a great day for a track meet, the sun was shining and the weather was pretty perfect (until the wind picked up late in the day). Big thanks to all the student workers, Windham Tech students and everyone else who helped the meet go off without a hitch!

On the women's side we saw many top three performances, as well as many personal records.

In the throws, Megan Wallace placed third in the discus and PRed in the hammer by about six feet and freshman Sarah Krulicki PR'ed in the javelin by about three feet. Also, freshman Lauren Hultzman debuted in the shot and javelin on Friday in order to prepare for the heptathlon.

In the jumping events, Eastern took the top two positions in the high jump in Lauren Hultzman and Cora Gingras, and the top three positions in triple jump in Cora Gingras, Lauren Hultzman and Ashlee James. Tacia Bryant took second in the long jump. Finally, Amy Huhn won the pole vault.

On the track, Amanda Quinones took first place in the 1,500 running a program record time of 4:58. Freshman Katie France took a second place finish in the 5k, breaking the 20 minute barrier for the first time! Cora Gingras placed second  in the 400 hurdles, followed by Ashlee James who ran to a third place finish in both the 400 hurdles and 100 hurdles, both personal best times. Christine Charpentier took a 3rd place finish in the 200, with a personal best time of 28.55.

Overall, there were lots of great times, distances and heights. We all had a great time and are already looking forward to next year's meet! Catch us at Springfield on Saturday, our last chance to tune up before the Little East Conference championships
