Women’s Track Sets Personal Marks at Greater Boston Track Club Meet

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.- The Merrimack women's track team turned in numerous strong performances at the Greater Boston Track Club Invitational held at the Gordon Track on the campus of Harvard University.

Anne Bajor (Methuen, Mass.) captured a 20th place finish in the women's 400 meter dash with a time of 1:04.70. Bajor's time qualified her for the Northeast-10 Conference Championship meet.

Bajor also claimed sixth in the women's 800 meter run with a first place finish in her heat. The sophomore's time of 2:28.65 also earned her a spot at the conference championships. Ashley Sarris (Shelton, Conn.) crossed the finish line in 15th with a time of 2:33.93 which qualifies her for the league championship meet.

Caitlin Kasala-Hallinan (Worcester, Mass.) and Fiona Coleman (Windsor, Conn.) both logged personal bests in the mile run. Kasala-Hallinan finished in 5:44.76, good for 25th. Coleman garnered a 31st place finish with a career mark of 5:47.85. Julie Binney (South Easton, Mass.) claimed 36th crossing the finish line less than two seconds after Coleman. All three runners qualified for the Northeast-10 Championships.

In the women's 3,000 meter run, Rebecca Ainscow (Derry, N.H.) led the way with a qualifying time and personal record of 11:19.98 to place her in seventh. Ashley Bock (Sutton, Mass.) captured 14th with a career time of 11:52.62 to also earn a spot in the league championships.

"We used today's race as a good quality workout. Everyone dropped down in distances with many athletes running multiple races. Overall, we did a great job competing today,"  said head coach Matt Pimentel.

Merrimack returns to the track Friday as it will compete in the two-day Boston University Mini-Meet.
