Both the men’s and women’s track and field teams showed some strong performances this past Sunday at the non-scoring Greater Boston Track Club Invitational at Harvard University.

While Chris Brown ’12 finished third in the Bill Squires Open Mile run, his time of 4:08.45 was the fastest in the UAA this season and the second fastest in all of Division III. In the men’s Open Mile run, Taylor Dundas ’14 placed first with a time of 4:18.73.

On the women’s side, Kim Farrington ’13 won the triple jump with a distance of 10.69 meters, jumping .35 meters farther than the next best collegiate competitor from Division I school Bryant. Ali Kirsch ’14 finished second in the 800-meter run with a time of 2:26.07, beating teammate Kristi Pisarik ’15 by just .32 seconds. Team captain Lily Parenteau ’12 took second place in the high jump with a height of 1.57 meters. Kate Warwick ’12 was the only collegiate athlete in the 3,000-meter run and finished four seconds out of first place, with a time of 9:57.86.

The men’s and women’s teams will be back in action this weekend at the B.U. Terrier Classic in Boston.
