Women’s indoor track throughout their winter season has had quite an amazing experience. With records set throughout the season, the Bantams have continued to strive towards new heights. However, this past weekend over Trinity Days, the track and field team was able to have a strong finish at the New England Division III Championships which was held at Bowdoin.
The Bantams were able to secure a solid 13th place out of the 26 schools that went. They also were able to beat out rival NESCAC competitors Colby and Conn. College. However, the division was won overall by Williams (1), followed by Tufts (3), Middlebury (4), Bowdoin (5), and Wesleyan (6). Yet, compared to last year, the Bantams have definitely moved up in the ranking and have placed themselves in a good position to start the spring season. Of the numerous events this past weekend, the Bantams stood out above the competition in the 200 meter and 400 meter dash. Morgan Hallow ’19 won the 200-meter dash and was able to secure third place in the 400-meter dash just a few milliseconds behind Coast Guard. More specifically, in the 400 meter she did an excellent job securing third and was just a few milliseconds off of a top time, but once again it makes us all the more excited for the upcoming spring season. Another senior that shined on the course was Anna Barnes ’19 who finished fourth in the 1000 meter and was able to break her own college record and set a final time of 2:56.62 for All-Region honors. Overall, Barnes was a mere 1.52 seconds away from the top time, which is thrilling to think that the Bantams are already setting records in the winter and we still have a lot to look forward to for the upcoming spring season. With a few weeks away from the start of the spring season kicking off this Saturday, March 2, there is a lot to look forward to.
