PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
The Providence College women's track and field team hosted the first Friar Invitational on the newly constructed Ray Treacy Track at Providence College today (April 12). The Friars claimed first-place in eight events on the day. Providence saw sophomore Sarah Mary Collins (Basel, Switzerland) and senior Laura Nagel (Napier, New Zealand) post personal-best performances.
In the 3000 meter, Collins claimed first after posting an ECAC Championship qualifying performance with a personal-best time of 9:19.77. Collins was followed by freshman Catarina Rocha (Peabody, Mass.) and graduate student Samantha Roecker (Charlton, N.Y.), who both also posted ECAC qualifying times. Rocha finished second (9:46.80), while Roeker finished third (9:51.58).
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.
The Friars' 4 x 100 and 4 x 400 meter relay teams also claimed first-place finishes on the day. In the 100 meter relay Providence finished in a time of 50.91, while in the 400 meter relay the Friars finished in a time of 4:02.41.
Providence defeated both Stony Brook (76-38) and Bryant (81-35) to earn the program's first wins on the newly constructed Ray Treacy Track.
