SCORING:
Cha'Mia Rothwell was the long jump runner up and earned All-Ivy League Second Team honors in the process. The sophomore’s longest leap came on her final attempt and measured 6.20m, but she was bested by the final jump of Harvard’s Gabrielle Thomas who posted a 6.61m on her sixth time down the runway as well. Rothwell was in the conference’s indoor champion in the event and now boasts a second-place finish in the outdoor season. She was third at last year’s meet at Yale.
• Fellow sophomore Julia Valenti was second in the pole vault, while freshman Brooke Brunet claimed third. Like Rothwell, Valenti was the event’s winner at the indoor meet in Hanover before claiming all-league second-team recognition and eight points for the outdoor campaign. Valenti and Brunet were both credited with a clearance of 3.86m with the former taking second and the latter third based on number of attempts.
• Freshman Olivia Goodwin tied for sixth in the event with a 3.71m and earned half a point. In total, the Big Green claimed 14.5 points from the pole vault a year after getting none in New Haven.
Olivia Wiener was unseated as the champion of the javelin, but managed to finish third with a throw of 44.35m to pick up six points. Bridget Douglas was fourth and earned another four points thanks to her 42.67m. Both scoring throws came on their final attempt of the day.
Amelia Ali claimed fourth in the hammer throw with a 52.59m on her third toss of the afternoon. Alexandra Collins, also a junior, took fifth and earned a pair of points with a 51.07m throw.

QUALIFIERS:
• Rothwell ran a 13.47 in the preliminaries of the 100m hurdles, earning the top spot in Sunday’s final.
Abby Livingston will move on in the 800m as the top qualifier thanks to a 2:08.12 and a win in her first race of the weekend.
• The 1500m saw Bridget Flynn advance with the third-best time of the day in prelims, running a 51.28 to take first in her heat.
Nicole Deblasio ran a 12.02 out of lane 6 in her prelim of the 100m. That secured her the sixth-best qualifying time and a spot in Sunday’s final.
• The junior is also moving on the 200m thanks to a 24.16 Saturday at Franklin Field. Rothwell missed out on earning the final qualifying spot by four-thousandths of a second despite posting a better time than two other automatic qualifiers from the other section.
Maria Garman (2869) and Gretta Pickett (2682) are fifth and sixth, respectively, in the heptathlon with three events remaining on the final day.
