The Brandeis men’s and women’s track and field teams competed last weekend in the Boston University Terrier Classic, a non-scoring meet with competition from Division I, II and III schools as well as non-collegiate teams.

Their best performance in an NCAA event came from Kate Warwick ’12 who ran the 5,000-meter run with a time of 17:20.96, 21st overall and second among Division III runners. After adjusting her time to take into account the track size, it was the fifth fastest in Division III this season, the best time in the UAA this season and third among all New England runners.

In the 1,000-meter run, Kristi Pisarik ’15 finished with a time of 3:02.61, which was 11th out of 49 runners and third among Division III competitors. In the high jump, Lily Parenteau ’12 finished 11th overall with a distance of 1.60 meters. Parenteau was unable to improve her national ranking in the event but still sits at 16th.

On the men’s team, Chris Brown ’12 continued his strong season, placing ninth overall and first among Division III runners in the mile run with a time of 4:10.34. Taylor Dundas ’14 improved his national standing, placing 27th overall and fifth among Division III runners in the mile run with a time of 4:14.97, thereby improving his Division III ranking to 12th on the season.

The men’s and women’s teams will both be back in action this Saturday at the Tufts Invitational.
