Jan. 25, 2014
BOSTON, Mass. – The Boston College women’s track and field team had an outstanding meet at the BU John Thomas Terrier Invitational Friday night. Nine Eagles met the ECAC standard and junior Liv Westphal set the U-23 French national record in the 3000m.
Westphal crossed the line in the 3000m in 9:16.34, good enough for third place in the race, and first among all collegiate runners. Her time was the third-best finish in BC history, behind Shannon Smith (9:11.25) and Jillian King (9:12.51), and the fourth-best in the NCAA this year.
Laura Hottenrott took fifth in the 3000m, finishing in 9:33.91, and put up the sixth-best time in BC history. Madeleine Davidson (9:29.94) and Danielle Winslow (9:55.51) took fifth and ninth, respectively. Westphal, Hottenrott, Davidson and Winslow all met the ECAC qualifying standard.
The Eagles also had a great showing in the 5000m, as Morgan Mueller (17:00.74) took sixth and Elizabeth O’Brien (17:07.73) finished tenth. Both runners met the ECAC qualifying standard.
Three others met the ECAC standard for Boston College: Claudia DiSomma in the 1000m (2:54.47, third place), Katherine O’Keefe in the mile (4:54.42, 16th place) and Carly Daniel in the 400m (56.72, 19th place).
Carly Daniel also set her personal best in the 200m with a time of 25.40.
Kristen McDonaugh competed in the Harvard Multi meet and jumped a height of 1.70m (5’7”) in the high jump, which ties her for the fifth-best height in BC history with Taylor Aizenstadt, Lianne Supple and Susan Goode.
BC will compete next at the Harvard University Invitational on Feb. 1.
