Nagel led Providence in the 1500 meter run with an ECAC qualifying and personal-best time of 4:20.86 to claim first. Later in the day, Nagel led Providence to a first-place finish in the 4 x 800 meter relay after overtaking a Stony Brook runner to nab the lead in the final two laps. The Friars finished the relay in a time of 9:20.06.
Sophomores Molly Keating (Rehoboth, Mass.) and Lauren Basile (Watertown, Mass.) also claimed first in their respective events. Keating finished first in the 800 meter run with a time of 2:11.73, while Basile took first-place finishes in the 100 (12.72) and 200 (26.64) meter dashes.
