WALNUT, CALIF. - It was a very productive trip to the west coast for the Providence College men's and women's track and field teams, as seven Friars shattered BIG EAST Qualifying standards at the competitive Mt. Sac Relays.
Friar junior Julian Matthews placed ninth in the elite division of the 1500-meters, crossing in a personal best 3:41.72. Also on the men's side, junior David McCarthy (Waterford, Ireland) made his 2011 outdoor debut with a blistering 14:04.04. Sophomore Ahmed Ali (Boston, Mass.) set a new personal record in the 10,000 with a clocking of 30:22.29, while freshman Alex Wallace (Waipukarau, New Zealand) completed the 1500 by posting a 3:48.01. All three men qualified for the conference meet in the process.
On the women's side, junior Hannah Davidson (Saratoga Springs, N.Y.) cruised past her personal best in the 5000-meters, placing 18th in the elite level race with a time of 16:20.37. Davidson has now qualified for the BIG EAST Championships in both the 5000-meter run and the 3000-meter steeplechase. Senior Emma Perron qualified for a spot in the BIG EAST's with a time of 17:05.67.
In the 1500-meter run, freshman Laura Nagel (Napier, New Zealand) set a new personal best, grabbing sixth place with a BIG EAST Championship-worthy 4:23.23. Teammate Charlotte Ffrench O'Carroll (Dublin, Ireland) also crushed the conference standard with a 4:31.06.
The Friars return to action April 28-30 at the prestigious Penn Relays in Philadelphia, Penn.
