Women’s Track & Field Competes at Final Qualifying Meet

Leila Alfaro

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Six members of the Connecticut College women's track & field team competed at a final qualifying meet on the campus of MIT on Thursday evening.  

Junior Leila Alfaro (Charleston, S.C.) put forth the most notable effort in the 400-meter intermediate hurdles. She navigated the track in a personal-best time of 1:05.65.

 

The Camels also fielded a 4x100-meter relay team that registered the program's third-fastest time of the season. Junior Haley Vanty (Berlin, Conn.), freshman Erin Fitzpatrick (Sterling, Mass.), classmate Ellie Ebby (Wynnewood, Pa.), and senior Ivana Lamptey (Leicester, Mass.) combined for a time of 49.44 seconds which was good for fourth overall.

 

In the field, senior Emily Senatore (Norwell, Mass.) posted a runner-up finish in the discus throw. She recorded a mark of 141-feet, 2-inches.

 

Select members of the Connecticut College women's track & field team will now wait to see if they will have the opportunity to compete at the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships at the SPIRE Institute in Geneva, Ohio from May 24-26 when qualifiers are announced on Saturday. Junior Koko Mensah (Orange, N.J.) is ranked fifth in the shot put, senior Shannon Kennedy (East Longmeadow, Mass.) is currently 10th in the heptathlon, and Senatore is squarely on the bubble in the discus.
