TAMPA, Fla. – The Dartmouth women had a long first day at the 2018 NCAA East Regional at South Florida’s USF Track & Field Stadium as a weather delay pushed back some of the day’s final events.
The event that was pushed back late into the night was sophomore Cha'Mia Rothwell in the long jump. Unfortunately, the lengthy delay hindered Rothwell’s ability to get into a rhythm as she finished 26th with a 19-5.25/5.92m jump to her credit, a figure below her standards.
For the Big Green, the day was spent mostly in the infield and in the throwing areas, beginning with the javelin. Junior Olivia Wiener finished 43rd as her best throw of the day measured 131-5.0/40.07m.
In the high jump, junior Maria Garman took 20th as she set a new personal best, clearing 1.75m on her second attempt. The final spot to qualify to move on to Eugene also posted the same height as Garman, but did so on her first attempt and therefore edged out the nine other competitors who all matched her figure but with more tries.
Senior Bridget Flynn saw her Dartmouth career come to an end on Thursday afternoon as she was 47th in the 1500m, crossing in 4:34.35.
