HADLEY, Mass – Senior Danielle Griffin and sophomore Kristin Ratliff of the Amherst College women's track & field team have been named to the 2018 All-NESCAC team, as announced Tuesday by the league office.

The top-three finishers in each event during this past weekend's NESCAC Championship at Trinity College garner All-NESCAC recognition, with 54 individuals and nine relay quartets claiming the honor. 

Smashing her previous season-best time of 2:17.48 in the 800 meter run, Griffin took gold as the NESCAC's fastest harrier with a 2:12.03 mark in the event, edging out second place finisher Anna Passannante of Williams (2:12.96) by less than a second.
