The women’s track team traveled to Boston on March 6-8 to compete in the ECAC Indoor Track and Field Championships at Boston University’s Track and Tennis Center. This was the Bison’s first meet following their Patriot League indoor league title.

Abigail Brundage ’16 was the only Bison to earn individual All-East honors, as she took seventh in shot put with a toss of 43-10. Teammate Sophia Nnadi ’16 just missed All-East status with a toss of 43-01, putting her in ninth place. The 4×400 relay team made up of Allison Sharkey ’17, Elyse Pettaway ’17, Jen Silvestri ’16, and Kim Nagotko ’15 took All-East honors, crossing the line in 3:48.11. Efe Agege ’18 just missed All-East honors with a triple jump leap of 39-03.25, putting her in ninth place. The distance medley relay team of Sarah Chandler ’17, Morgan Roche ’15, Reagan Cerney ’17, and Emma Cousins ’18 finished in 18th place.

“Coming off a patriot league championship, we ended the indoor season on a high note with some strong performances and made our mark at ECACs,” Cerney said.

Overall the Bison struggled with overcoming sicknesses, as some top performers were not able to make the trip. The Bison are now in the midst of a three-week break before starting the outdoor season at the Monmouth Invitational on March 28.
