The Dartmouth women’s track & field team split up Friday night with some competing in Staten Island and others in Boston.
The Staten Island group ran at the FastTrack National Invitational at the Ocean Breeze Athletic Complex. Those in Boston ran at the Valentine Invitational at the BU Track & Tennis Center.
Leading the way in New York was sophomore sprinter Cha'Mia Rothwell, tying her own school record in the final of the 60m hurdles. Rothwell ran an 8.30 to win the event, besting the field and the second-pace runner by eight-hundredths of a second.
Rothwell would go on to win the 200m as well. Another dominating performance saw the sophomore run a 24.07, nearly four-tenths of a second better than the second-place runner from Princeton. Nicole Deblasio was fourth in 24.73, finishing second in her heat.
Also winning an event was sophomore Julia Valenti in the pole vault. Valenti cleared 3.90m on her second try, the only individual to pass over the bar at that height. Brooke Brunet was third (3.75m), while Olivia Goodwin claimed sixth (3.60m).
