Sierra Livious '14 Takes 4th in Shot Put & Weight Throw, DMR Places 3rd to Highlight NE Div. III Meet - Indoor Season Wraps up in Boston

The Cardinals had five placewinning performances during the New England Division III women's indoor track championships hosted by Springfield Fri.-Sat., Feb. 21-22.  As a result, Wesleyan accumulated 24 teams points, good enough for 10th place among 28 scoring teams.  Williams won the event in a landslide with 150 points.  NESCAC dominated the meet as seven of the top 10 schools were from the NESCAC.

Sierra Livious '14 (photo) picked up fourth-place points in both the shot put and weight throw.  Her put was just two inches shy of the school record she set earlier in the season as she came up with a 42-9 1/2 effort.  Her weight throw was a solid 51-5 3/4. 

On the track, Wesleyan had the third-place finisher in the distance medley relay while individually, Ellie Martin '16 took fifth in the 400m (:59.65) and Sydney Cogswell '16 secured fifth in the 800m (2:21.90).

During the New Engand Open meet at Boston U. Fri.-Sat., Feb. 28-Mar. 1, only Livious competed for the Cardinals as she took 10th in the shot put and 13th in the weight throw.

During the final regular-season event for the squad, the ECAC Div. III meet Fri.-Sat., March 7-8, also in Boston, Mass. at the Reggie Lewis Center, the Cardinals picked up six team points from the 4x400m relay of Martin, Aidan Bardos '17, Cogswell and Kimora Brock '15, which took third in a time of 3:54.44, just .1 seconds over their earlier school record set at B.U. Feb. 7.

The next track action moves outdoors as the team will inaugurate the newly refurbished Andersen Track during a home meet Sat., March 22, called the Mini-Meet Invitational.
