Men's & Women's Indoor Track Compete at ECAC Championships


MEDFORD, MA - The Amherst College women's indoor track team notched a 39-point, fifth-place finish at the ECAC Championships this weekend, highlighted by senior Rebecca Woo (Manchester., NH) and her 2:56.99 win in the 1000-meter run, as well as the 4x800-meter squad's first-place, 9:26.99 showing. Senior Amie Shei (Lexington, MA) also picked up the pace for the Jeffs, pulling up to a second-place finish in the 500-meter dash. 

Senior Emily Lobsenz (Fairfield, CT) secured a seventh-place showing with her 18:24.42 5000-meter run, and first-year phenom Carter Hamill (Richmond, VA) took seventh in the 1500-meter run. The Distance Medley team posted a fourth-place, 12:14.57 day, and the 4x400-meter relay team took home 15th place for Amherst, with a 4:10.77 effort. Junior Laurel Kilgour (Clifton Park, NY) marked a 2:18.81 time in the 800-meter run, and first-year Lee-Jay Henry (Springfield, MA) took ninth place in the triple jump. 

The men, meanwhile, had trouble cracking the scoring column. Sophomore John Stanton-Geddes (Glendale, MO) gathered all five team points on the day with his fourth-place pace through the 1500-meter run. 

This weekend, the Jeffs will travel to Northern Ohio College for the Division III NCAA Championships.
