Women: 12th BIG EAST
Coach: Ray Treacy
Captains: Heather Couture, Susan Murnane
The Providence College women's indoor track team competed without the services of senior Marie McMahon (Ennistymon, Ireland) who sat out the indoor season. McMahon, an eight-time All-America selection, used the indoor season as a redshirt year. She returned to competition for the outdoor season.
Sophomore Sarah Dupre (Kingston, Ontario) had an impressive season, earning three first place finishes in the first three meets. Dupre captured first in the 3,000 (9:54.54) at the Boston University on December 7, and earned wins in the mile at the New England Challenge Series on January 11 and January 18. After a sixth-place finish in the 5,000 at the BIG EAST Championship on February 15, Dupre captured the 5,000 meters (16:52.36) at the ECAC Championship on March 2 and qualified for the NCAA Championship. At the NCAA Championship on March 8, Dupre placed 12th in the 3,000 meters (9:48.32).
Freshman Dana Ostrander (Ballston Lake, N.Y.) also had a strong season. Ostrander earned a win in the 1,000 meters at the New England Challenge on January 18. On January 25, she placed seventh in the 3,000 meters at the Terrier Classic in a time of 9:40.74 to qualify for the NCAA Championship. At the NCAA Championship, Ostrander finished eighth in the qualifying heats.
Senior Krissy Haacke (Latham, N.Y) was the third member of the women's team to compete at the NCAA Championship. Haacke qualified for the NCAA Championship by finishing fifth in the 3,000 meters (9:41.99) at the BIG EAST Championship on February 15. At the NCAA Championship, Haacke placed 11th in the 3,000 in a time of 9:32.41. Prior to the NCAA's, Haacke ran one of her strongest races of the season, finishing first in the 3,000 (9:44.14) at the New England Championship on March 21.
