HANOVER, N.H. – Seven members of the Dartmouth women’s track & field team have qualified for the 2018 NCAA Outdoor East Regional next week in Tampa.
South Florida will host the three-day meet starting next Thursday and running through Saturday (May 24-26) at the USF Track & Field Stadium.
Sophomore Cha'Mia Rothwell leads the way as she qualified in a pair of events, going to USF to compete in both the 100m hurdles as well as the long jump. Rothwell’s season was highlighted by winning the Ivy League title in the 100m hurdles in a school and Ivy League record 13.24, but she is actually seeded higher in the long jump thanks to a 20-5.25/6.23m.
The steeplechase will feature a pair of Big Green harriers with sophomores Lauren Sapone and Julia Stevenson both punching their tickets to regionals. Senior Bridget Flynn will look to continue her career with one of the 48 spots in the 1500m.
It’s not just on the track where Dartmouth will see representation. Sophomore Julia Valenti is headed to Tampa to compete in the pole vault, while juniors Maria Garman and Olivia Wiener make the trip for the high jump and javelin, respectively.
For Rothwell and Valenti, this marks their second NCAA East Regional appearance in as many years. Valenti returns in the pole vault, while Rothwell is back in the 100m hurdles and making her region debut in the long jump after not qualifying as a freshman in 2017.
The meet will be streamed live on FloTrack in partnership with the NCAA.
