With a handful of Cardinals competing in the Yale Invitational Sat., Jan. 12, Steph O'Brien '08 (photo) turned in a stellar effort in the 800m race. Her time of 2:21.36 was good for second place in a field of 33 runners. She was nosed out by Pam Petruski of St. John's, whose winning time was a scant .04 seconds ahead of O'Brien's. She was by far the Cardinals' top finisher. The next action for the squad takes place Sat., Jan. 19 when the Brandeis Invitational will be the focus of attention.
