The Tribe's highest finish of the day came in the discus, where redshirt-junior Natalie Baird (Sterling, Va.) threw a season-best and ECAC-qualifying 47.29 meters (155-2) to take second overall. It was the fourth-longest throw in school history.
Baird also competed in the shot put Saturday morning, adding another all-conference accolade with her third-place put of 13.36m (43-10).
In the 1,500m, the College had three athletes score led by junior Katie Buenaga (Greenville, Del.). Buenaga ran a career-best 4:33.39 for third place, and crossed the line just ahead of sophomore Clarissa Schick (Richmond, Va.). Schick capped off a breakthrough weekend with another career-best, lopping another 1.5 seconds off of her prelim time and more than seven seconds for the entire weekend to finish fourth in 4:36.04. Junior Michelle Britto (Woodbridge, Va.) was sixth in 4:37.73, scoring three more team points.
Sophomore Nicole Dory (Fort Worth, Texas) tied her career-best in the triple jump from two weeks ago with a leap of 11.98m (39-3.75), this time with a legal wind of +0.3 meters/second to take seventh overall and add two team points. It is tied for the second-longest jump in school history.
The Tribe's final team point came in the 4x100m relay, with an eighth-place showing.
With the regular season now complete, the Tribe turns its attention to the IC4A and NCAA Championships, as well as last-chance qualifiers for NCAAs and the Olympic Trials. Next weekend brings the ECAC Championships at Princeton and the Swarthmore Last Chance distance races.
