1997 Season Outlook
Leading the charge will be senior and six time All-American, Angie Graham. As a junior, Graham finished fifth in the 1997 NCAA Outdoor 3,000 Meter Championship. She set a new school record of 4:37.52 and finished fourth in the mile at the 1997 NCAA Indoor Championships and won the mile event at the New England Championships, during the indoor season. In the spring, Graham set school records of 9:15.71 in the 3,000 meter race and 4:17.73 in the 1,500 meter contest at the Mt. Sac Relays. Along side Graham will be senior running mates Jodi Lake and Ann Baldelli. Lake who finished first in her last four indoor meets and was a NCAA qualifier last season will be a catalyst for the BC distance squad. Baldelli who finished third in the mile at the New England Challenge Indoor Meet, is also expected to be a major contributor this season.
Freshman Sandy Wells and Lisa McIsaac, both from Canada, come to the Heights with strong backgrounds and will be an immediate force added to the BC attack. Wells finished fourth in the Canadian National Junior 3,000 Meter Championships with a time of 9:57 and McIsaac who hails from Edmonton, finished sixth in the same race with a time of 10:10.
Also, freshman Bridget Fleming will add depth to the squad. She was the New Hampshire State Champion in the 1,000 meter event last spring.
Junior Libby MacDonald returns to the heights after a successful sophomore campaign in which she established several BC throwing records. Including a hammer toss of 144'05" at Brown University last spring for the second best toss in BC history. Overall the BC coaching staff believes that this years squad is deep and talented and has the potential to develop into a distinguished contingent over the course of the year.
