The Hamilton College track & field teams competed at the NESCAC Championships Saturday at Trinity College. On the women's side, the Continentals (who finished 10th in the team standings) recorded a trio of top three finishes.

Cat Berry '19 won the conference title in the 200-meter dash, finishing with a time of 24.87 seconds, which is the 11th fastest time in NCAA Division III this year. She also took third place in the 100-meter dash (12.34). Berry earned all-NESCAC honors in both events for the second straight year.

Grace Heller '19 finished third in the 10,000-meter run with a season-best time of 36:42.26 to receive all-conference honors. The junior transfer from Fordham University is on the all-conference team for the first time.

In the hammer throw, Emily Hull '18 finished fifth with a distance of 40.32 meters. Hull achieved the mark on her third throw of the event.

Mary Lundin '19 ran a personal-best 2:15.29 to finish sixth in the 800-meter run.

Hamilton's 3,200-meter relay took sixth place with the quartet of Lundin, Brigit Humphreys '21, Hanna Jerome '18 and Elizabeth Perry '18 recording a time of 9:25.51.

The Continentals travel to SUNY Brockport for the 2018 Atlantic Region Outdoor Championships on Wednesday and Thursday, May 16 and 17.
