SPRINGFIELD, Mass. – Bridgewater State University junior Jayci Andrews (Plymouth, Mass.) captured the New England title and broke her own school record in the 60-meter hurdles on Saturday at the Division III New England Women's Indoor Track & Field Championships hosted by Springfield College.
Competing against a very talented field of hurdlers, Andrews posted a finals time of 8.86 seconds as she eclipsed her previous BSU indoor standard of 8.92 seconds set last weekend at the MASCAC Championships. Andrews also garnered All-New England honors in the 400-meter dash as she posted a season-best time of 58.65 seconds to place fourth in the event.
Junior Kira Gilbreath (West Haven, Utah) won the New England championship in the shot put with a toss of 42 feet, 3.25 inches (12.88m).
The BSU women's indoor track & field team tied for tenth place in the team standings with 25 points. Williams College grabbed top honors with 149 points, while MIT (127 pts.) and Middlebury College (73 pts.) rounded out the top three.
Next weekend, several members of the BSU women's indoor track & field team will compete at the BU Last Chance Meet.
