The Brandeis men’s and women’s track and field teams participated in the University Athletic Association Championships last Saturday, Mar. 1, with both teams coming in seventh.

The Washington University men’s team and the University of Chicago’s women’s team took first place.

Kelsey Whitaker ’16 placed second in the mile, and Amelia Lundkvist ’14 immediately followed her teammate, to take third by less than a second. They won All-UAA honors, and Victoria Sanford ’14 came in fifth.

Top female finishers in the 3,000-meter run were Maddie Dollins ’17 in seventh and Ashley Piccirillo-Horan ’17, who came in 16th. Selen Livas ’17 was ninth in shot put, and Ashley Klein ’16 and Alyssa Fenenbock ’15 came in 16th and 17th respectively.

Junior Mo Sidique had the best three jumps in the meet, out-jumping his closest opponent by about two feet. He and teammates Adam Berger ’16 and Brian Louis ’17 won more than two-thirds of the men’s 23 points with these three performances.

In the men’s 55-meter dash, Victor Asante ’17 won Brandeis two more points by coming in fifth.

The men’s top mile finishers were Grady Ward ’16 as number nine, Daniel Leon ’17 as number 16 and Matthew Doran ’17 as number 18.

Northeastern University will host the ECAC Championships on Friday, Mar. 7 and Saturday, Mar. 8, which both teams will attend.
