MIT Captures 2010 NEWMAC Women's Track and Field Championships

Nikki Hay Complete Results

Springfield, Mass. -- April 24, 2010 -- MIT claimed the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference Women's Track & Field team championship for the second straight year, and for the third time in the last four years, this afternoon at Springfield College's Blake Track with 197.5 points. The Engineers have now won this title in 2007, 2009, and 2010. Springfield took second with 167 points, followed by WPI with 129.

In fourth place as a team was Smith College with 100.5 points, followed by Wheaton (85), Mount Holyoke (39), and Coast Guard and Babson, each with 25 points.

While MIT captured the team title, certainly the most outstanding performer in the meet was Springfield College senior Nikki Hay. The native of Norwalk, Conn. won the 100 meters, 200 meters, long jump, triple jump, and was part of the winning 4x100 meter relay. She qualified provisionally for the NCAA Division III Championships in each event.

Two NEWMAC records were set. The first was by Jacqueline Wentz of MIT in the 1500 meter run. Her time of 4:37.77 bettered that of Springfield College's Marissa Clapp at 4:40.04 in 2002. The second NEWMAC record was established by Springfield in the 4x100 meter run. Their time of 47.97 bettered that of 48.54 by Wheaton in 2001. SC's time of 47.97 was also a school record.
