Two School Records Set in Day One of ECAC Championships

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. -- The University of Southern Maine women’s outdoor track and field team set two school records Thursday during the first day of competition at the ECAC (Eastern College Athletic Conference) Division III Outdoor Track and Field Championships being held at Springfield College.

Junior Nicole Kirk (Scarborough, Maine) eclipsed her school record in the 100-meter dash for the third straight week crossing the finish line in 12.30 seconds. Her time took another four one-hundredths of a second off the record she set last weekend at the NEICAAA New England Championships, and was ninth quickest overall on the day.

Kirk combined later with junior Hannah Damron (Windham, Maine), sophomore Liz O’Neal (Brunswick, Maine/Mt. Ararat) and senior Peyton Dostie (Standish, Maine/Bonny Eagle) to break the record in 4 x 400-meter relay as the quartet finished in a time of 3:53.28 to place second overall.

Dostie qualified for the finals in the 100-meter hurdles after she won her heat with the fourth quickest time in the trials. Dostie posted a time of 14.63 seconds in her trials race, just one one-hundredth of a second off her school record.

The Huskies have eight points after the first day of competition to be in a five-way tie for 13th place among the 35 teams that scored in the opening day. Rowan University leads the meet with 34 points. M.I.T. is in the second spot with 29 followed by Wellesley College with 24 and Geneseo State with 23.

Competition resumes Friday.

Sunil, Beauregard, 4x800 relay highlight final day of women's track season at ECACs

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. -- The Bates women's track and field team scored in four events in Friday's action at the ECAC Division III Outdoor Championships, taking 22nd place out of 56 scoring teams behind several personal bests to finish out the season.

First-year Srishti Sunil (Bangalore, India) became Bates' first woman to long jump over 18 feet, beating her previous school record by 3.75 inches with a top distance of 18-1.5. Sunil finished third in the event, scoring six team points.

Bates scored 15.5 points in Friday's action to finish 22nd out of the 56 teams that scored points for top-eight performances. The Bobcats half a point behind 20th-place UMass-Boston and half a point ahead of 23rd-place RPI.

Bates finished the meet running a season-best 9:24.50 in the 4x800-meter relay, good for fourth place and five team points. Sophomore Ashley Pollack (Port Washington, N.Y.) led off, followed by sophomore Jessica Wilson (Cumberland, Maine), senior Elena Jay (West Hartford, Conn.) and senior Sarah Fusco (Cheshire, Conn.), 22.45 seconds faster than their previous season best. Bates finished fourth despite running in the first, "slower" heat, as did event winner Oneonta State (9:08.04).

The Bobcats' other four points came from first-year Lindsey Beauregard's (Hollis, N.H.) fifth-place performance out of a field of 15 in the heptathlon. Beauregard scored a season-best 4,072 points, just 57 points shy of the team record set by Kathleen Nugent in 2006, and only five points behind fourth-place Hailey Burkhart, a junior from RIT. Beauregard had the second-best shot put in the field, a career-best 37-1.25, and was among the top eight in five other events.

Senior Colby Gail (Topsham, Maine) scored Bates' half-point by tying for eighth place in the high jump with Amherst's Kiana Herold, clearing 5-3. Sunil tied for 10th place, also clearing 5-3, and junior Elyse Rubchinuk (Newport, N.H.) tied for 18th place at 5-1.

Other notable performances by the Bobcats on Friday included:

Markonic ran a season-best 57.87 in the 400-meter dash, finishing 10th.
Bates placed 13th in the 4x100 relay in 49.29, 0.05 off their season best. Senior Quincy Snellings (Lexington, Mass.), sophomore Allison Hill (Brunswick, Maine), Markonic and junior Alexis Dickinson (Brunswick, Maine) represented Bates.
Fusco, Bates' three-time All-American, placed 19th in the 800 meters, in 2:18.52.
Thursday Recap

Gail established a new personal record in the hammer throw, and first-year Sally Ceesay (Bronx, N.Y.) missed scoring in the triple jump by one place, on the first day of the ECAC Division III Outdoor Championships.

Gail sent the hammer 146 feet, 11 inches on her third and final attempt, two feet beyond her previous best. The mark was good for 23rd place in a competitive field of 35.

Ceesay reached the triple jump finals with the eight-farthest effort of trials, at 37 feet, 4.5 inches on her first attempt. Unable to improve during her three finals attempts, Ceesay was passed and moved out of the scoring by Hailey Smith of Brockport State.

Other performances by Bates included:

Wilson placed 11th in the 3,000-meter steeplechase, in a time of 11:30.83.
Jay placed 18th in the 5,000 meters, in 18:05.47, while senior Erica Gagnon (Weymouth, Mass.) was 22nd in 18:29.87.
Hill missed the finals of the 100-meter hurdles, with the 14th-fastest trials time of 15.11.
Bates placed 19th in the 4x400 relay in 4:04.38, on legs run by Snellings, junior Melanie Ehrenberg (Rumson, N.J.), Pollack and senior Amelia Oliver (Potomac, Md.) running the legs. Both Snellings and Oliver are recent recipients of Fulbright English Teaching Assistantships -- Oliver to Ukraine and Snellings to Brazil.
Competing in the first day of the heptathlon, Beauregard recorded personal bests of 37-1.25 in the shot put and 5-0 in the high jump, as well as a collegiate best 16.62 in the 100 hurdles.
Ehrenberg also finished in a tie for 15th place in the pole vault, clearing 11 feet and 2.5 inches.

Stansel, Enos lead men's track to 7th place at ECAC Championships

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. -- Senior John Stansel won the 1,500 meters to highlight the second and final day of the ECAC Division III Outdoor Championships for the Bates men's track and field team on Friday at Springfield College.

With 33 points, Bates finished in seventh place out of 57 teams that scored points for top-eight performances. The Bobcats were two points behind sixth-place Williams and six ahead of eighth-place Bridgewater State.

Stansel (Newburyport, Mass.) beat a field of 14 with a time of 3:51.70, just 0.3 off of the personal best time he ran at last week's Open New Englands. Stansel was 0.37 seconds ahead of runner-up Andrew Sukeforth of Bridgewater.

Senior Sean Enos (Lynnfield, Mass.) took fourth place in the discus throw at 159-4. First-year Adedire Fakorede (Newark, N.J.) finished ninth, one place out of the scoring, at 146-9.

Junior Nick Margitza (Waterville, Maine) placed sixth in the shot put with a top effort of 52-0.5.

Senior Eric Wainman (Glastonbury, Conn.), after qualifying for the finals of the 110-meter hurdles on Thursday with a time of 14.89 seconds, placed seventh in Friday's final, in 14.99.

Thursday Recap

Enos passed the 200-foot mark in the hammer throw for the fifth straight week, leading the Bates men's track and field team with a second-place finish on the first day of the ECAC Division III Outdoor Championships on Thursday at Springfield College.

Enos passed the 200-foot mark for the fifth straight week, and the fifth time in his career. The captain and seven-time All-American went 203-1 on his third attempt, good for second place, six inches ahead of Springfield's John Dayton, and 53 inches short of current NCAA leader Tyler Williams of Widener.

Bates received three additional All-ECAC, top-eight performances that earned the Bobcats team points:

Senior Michael Creedon (Medfield, Mass.), who was recently awarded a Fulbright English Teaching Assistantship for Brazil, finished seventh in the 5,000 meters, in 15:06.93.
Sophomore Joe Doyle (Glastonbury, Conn.) and first-year Zach Magin (West Hartford, Conn.) placed seventh and eighth, respectively, in the 10,000 meters at 31:42.14 and 31:42.68.
Bates competes in the NCAA Division III Outdoor Championships next week at St. Lawrence University in Canton, New York. Enos (hammer, discus) and Wainman (decathlon) are assured of competing, while Margitza (shot put) and Stansel (1,500) appear to be borderline candidates.

Miller picked up All-ECAC honors in the 200 meters with an eighth-place result after putting up a time of 22.13 seconds.

During the first day of competition on Thursday, freshman Ron Helderman (Madison, Maine) and junior Nick Wall (Sanford, Maine) picked up All-ECAC honors (top eight) in the pole vault when they tied for eighth place by clearing 4.43 meters (14-6 ¼).

The Huskies scored 23 points to finish 12th among the 57 teams that scored in the meet. Brockport (N.Y.) State won the meet with 72 points.
