    BOSTON, Mass. - The Providence College women's track and field team competed at the Boston University Season Opener on Saturday, Dec. 7. The women claimed the top-three spots in the 5000 meter event on Saturday.

    Seniors Emily Sisson (Chesterfield, Mo.) and Laura Nagel (Napier, New Zealand) along with sophomore Sarah Mary Collins (Basel, Switzerland) finished in the top-three with Nagel and Collins capturing personal bests in the 5000 meter event.
