BOSTON – In the final day of the ECAC Championships at Boston University’s Track and Tennis Center, the Dartmouth women’s track & field team saw several strong performances.

The final tune-up before next week’s NCAA National Championship meet in Albuquerque, N.M., and the start of outdoor season after that, Sunday at BU would serve as one of the last indoor events of the year for many members of the Big Green.

Sophomore Kaitlin Whitehorn made the most of her time on the track, taking third in the finals of the 60m with a 7:53. That time matched her weekend’s best mark after also running a 7.53 in the event’s semifinals on Saturday.

Meggie Donovan ran a 4:48.35 in the final of the women’s mile, good for fourth place. Sunday’s mark was a near six-second improvement over her prelim time posted in Dartmouth’s first day of competition.

A trio of runners competed in the 3000m for the Big Green with Bridget End’s 9:44.45 and 16th-place finish leading the way. Sarah Bennett claimed 22nd in 9:49.41, while Reid Watson posted a 9:59.77 to take home 34th overall.

After claiming second in the long jump last weekend at the 2014 Ivy League Heptagonal Championship in Hanover, senior Janae Dunchack looked to tackle the event again in Boston. Dunchack’s third jump of the day was measured at 17-5.25/5.31m and placed her 10th overall.

Dartmouth finished with 19 total points.
