Women's Track Competes Against Cornell and Harvard

Jan. 31, 2004

The Brown women's track team headed to Cambridge, MA, on Saturday, January 31, to compete against Harvard and Cornell at Harvard. Brown's team performance was good for second overall.

Several personal records were attained by the Brown women. Junior Ashley Wall (Ellicott City, MD) won her first collegiate long jump contest and was accompanied by freshman Naja Ferjan (Ljubljan, Slovenia) in fourth place. Junior Dominique Bosa-Edwards (Las Vegas, NV) won the triple jump in 40'2" and is among the top Ivy League contenders in the event.

Junior Meredith Crocker (Wakefield, RI) and sophomore Nora Sullivan (Cambridge, MA) went 1-2 in the 3000m, with Crocker running to a 17-second PR in a time of 9:49.25. Crocker's time should be enough to place her in the seeded section at Heps on February 28. Sullivan followed in 10:00.06. In the mile, senior Katherine Kosub (San Antonio, TX) PR'd by 3 seconds to take second with a time of 5:00.45. Ferjan lost a close duel in the 800m, but her time of 2:12.59 was good for a number two league rank.

On the field, junior Jill Lynch's (Racine, WI) consistency in the shotput continued, demonstrated by her second place finish with a throw of 42'7". Freshman Allison Brager (Youngstown, OH) is beginning to find her rhythm in the pole vault and finished third.

Women's track returns to action on February 7 at the University of Rhode Island Invitational in Kingston, RI.
