JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The first day of competition at the NCAA East Regional at the University of North Florida's Hodges Stadium produced just one event for the Dartmouth women's track & field team early Thursday evening.

Senior Christina Supino (Windham, N.H.) and sophomore Arianna Vailas (Manchester, N.H.) both ran for the Big Green in the first round of the 1,500 meters to kick off the weekend for their team.

Supino's 4:25.20 narrowly missed out on qualifying for the next round as her time was the first that failed to advance to Saturday's quarterfinal heat. It did earn her 20th overall.

Vailas also felt the sting of not moving on as she ran a 4:43.86 to finish in 48th place.

The team will continue its weekend in Jacksonville Friday evening as senior Alexi Pappas (Alameda, Calif.) will run in the 3,000-meter steeplechase.
