Women’s Track & Field Competes at Dartmouth Indoor Classic

HANOVER, N.H. – Junior Allison Brehm (Pembroke, N.H.) picked up a pair of first-place finishes and also ran the anchor leg of the winning 4x200 meter relay team as the University of New Hampshire women's indoor track & field team took part in the non-scoring Dartmouth Indoor Classic on Saturday evening at the Leverone Field House.

"We had strong performances all across the board today, every group really competed well," said head coach Casey Carroll. "This was the most balanced meet we've had and we did a better job over covering some of the holes from previous meets."

Brehm, who had her hand in three winning efforts on the day, was victorious in the 60-meter dash in a New England-qualifying time of 7.87. Brehm also captured the 200 meters, winning with a time of 26.66, while senior Jacky Mendes (Dayton, Maine) placed third overall in a time of 27.34.

"Allison certainly had her best day since she came to UNH," Carroll said. "She has really come a long way in her accelerations and it showed today in the dash."

Freshman Chelsey Serrano (Raymond, N.H.) turned-in a second-place finish in the 1,000 meters, crossing the finish line in a time of 3:05.11.

In the field, junior Rosemary Read (West Greenwich, R.I.) earned a second-place finish in the weight throw with a personal-best and ECAC-qualifying toss of 54-05.25.

In the long jump, junior Melanie Frazier (Bridgewater, Mass.) and sophomore Caroline Bonsaint (Hampton, N.H.) placed second and third, respectively, with leaps of 17-00.00 and 16-07.75.

Senior Danica Goodheart (Meredith, N.H.) took second place in the triple jump with a leap of 36-04.75.

Freshman Jessica Salley (Andover, Mass.) tied for a second-place finish in the high jump with a cleared height of 5-04.25.

Freshman Morgan Costa (Standish, Maine) claimed third in the 400 meters, finishing in a time of 1:00.64.

Junior Lucy Garfield (Hanover, N.H.) ran to a third-place finish in the 3,000 meters in a time of 10:52.57.

The Wildcats' 4x200 meter team of Costa, Frazier, freshman Virginia Lavallee (Kingston, N.H.) and Brehm finished first overall in a time of 1:47.02.

The Wildcats return to action on Saturday, Feb. 11 when they play host to Vermont at the Paul Sweet Oval at noon.
