Women Earn Runner-up Honors at ECAC Championship


PRINCETON, New Jersey – Georgetown fell eight points shy of winning its third consecutive ECAC outdoor track and field championship on May 16-19 at Princeton University’s William Weaver Stadium, recording a victory in the 4x800m relay, but finishing second to Seton Hall in the overall team standings.

The Pirates tallied 82 points to edge Georgetown for first. The Hoyas scored 74 points for second, while Virginia (59), West Virginia (58), and Pittsburgh (52) rounded out the top five.

Georgetown’s lone victory came in the 4x800m relay, as Emily Enstice (Potomac, Md./Georgetown Visitation), Heather Blackard (Kirkland, Wash./Juanita), Treniere Clement (Stow, Ohio/Stow-Monroe Falls), and Jill Laurendeau (Manchester, N.H./ Manchester Central) timed 8:39.77 to defeat runner-up Cornell by 3.73 seconds. The win marked the fourth consecutive year the Hoyas won the ECAC Outdoor 4x800m crown and the seventh time overall since 1992.

The 4x400m team of Jamillah Bowman (Ann Arbor, Mich./Ann Arbor Pioneer), Kori Hamilton (Glendora, Calif./St. Lucy’s Priory), Tyrona Heath (Endicott, N.Y./Union-Endicott), and Monica Hargrove (New haven, Conn./James Hillhouse) turned in another spectacular performance, recording an NCAA provisionally qualifying time of 3:35.68 for second place.

Individually, Bowman finished third in the 400m hurdles and Hargrove claimed fifth in the 400m dash.

Laurendeau led the team in the 1,500m run, clocking 4:23.59 for second place. Clement timed 4:25.25 for fourth, and Erin Sicher (College Park, Md./Good Counsel) and Enstice followed in sixth and seventh with times of 4:25.67 and 4:26.40, respectively.

Blackard claimed fifth in the 800m run with a time of 2:10.40, and Hamilton finished close behind in 2:10.58 for sixth.

Marni Kruppa (Dublin, Ohio/Dublin Coffman) and Amanda Pape (Olathe Kan./Olathe South) turned in a pair of third place finishes, with Kruppa recording 16:31.52 in the 5,000m run and Pape timing 35:47.31 in the 10,000m.

A trio of Hoyas registered top-ten finishes in the 3,000m run, as Lorena Adams (Lakehurst, N.J./Manchester Township) crossed the line in 9:34.86 for fifth, and Sicher and Kruppa followed in sixth and seventh, with times of 9:35.55 and 9:38.44, respectively.
