Karen Hull ’24, who was recently awarded the Bison of the Week award, won the long jump with a leap of 19-6.00, a new school record that helped put the Bison up by ten points. Hull also took home third in the 60-meter hurdles with a time of 8.86, which gave her team 6 points. Justley Sharp ’27 also had an outstanding performance in shotput, winning ten points for the team and earning an ECAC qualification. In the shotput, Avery Rebar ’26 got silver, and Prizila Negrete ’27 placed fourth. 

In addition to shotput, the Bison also dominated in the 400-meter dash. For a total of 24 points, Katherine Loew ’25 placed first, Colleen Linko ’24 placed second, and Anna Posh ’25 placed third.
