Following a strong showing at Dartmouth over February Break, the Middlebury men’s and women’s indoor track and field teams took part in meets this past weekend at Boston University and Tufts University, breaking five school records in the process.
At Boston University, the women’s team had impressive showings from Margo Cramer ’12 in the 800m, who qualified for NCAA competition, and the women’s distance medley relay (DMR) team of Cramer, Kaitlynn Saldanha ’11, Juliet Ryan-Davis ’13 and Katie Rominger ’14. The women’s DMR team set a school record with a time of 11:58.14.
Grace Doering ’13 followed her NCAA-qualifying turn at Dartmouth with another impressive performance in the high jump, finishing second overall. At Tufts, Amanda Lee ’11 won the mile, and Allison Astolfi ’11 won the long jump.
Not to be outdone by the women, the men’s team had spectacular performances at Boston University by Michael Schmidt ’12 and John Davies ’13, who set new school records in the 5000m and 3000m, respectively.
Rookie Bryan Holtzman ’14 had a standout performance, breaking the school record in the 200m. Following up on these impressive individual outings was the men’s DMR team of Schmidt, Davies, Addison Godine ’11 and Peter Hetzler ’14, which set a new school record with a time 9:57.49.
At Tufts, Nick Montello ’12 broke his own record with a leap of 21’4.75 in the long jump, and sophomore Anthony Lee ’13 won the 3000m.
These two strong showings by the men and the women should give them momentum into DIII New England’s this weekend.
