Complete Results

BALTIMORE, MD – The Johns Hopkins women’s track & field team competed at the Widener University Invitational last Saturday. The Blue Jay women put up solid marks against a strong field of mostly Division I opponents while breaking JHU’s 4x100-meter relay record.

The Blue Jay sprinters wasted no time at the Widener University Invitational track meet as they broke the school record while easily winning the 4 X 100 meter relay.  Senior co-captain Alison Smith led off and made the first of three perfect baton passes to Kelley Hussey who was followed by Leah Sibener and Chloe Ryan who finished things off in style in a conference leading 49.29 seconds.  Smith and Hussey rank two and three in the Centennial Conference at 100 meters.  In the longer 4 X 400 meter relay, the team of Amelia Vallenilla, Ingrid Johnson, Annie Monagle and Alison Smith recorded a winning time of 4:02.30 that, like the 4 X 100 relay, leads the Centennial Conference.

Junior Annie Monagle lowered her own school record in the 800-meter run with a time of 2:13.06 as she won over a field of 47 others.  Her mark leads the conference and is 12th in the country. 

Senior co-captain Stephanie Amalfe was third in the discus throw with a conference leading 40.13 meters (131’8”) as she and Monagle shared the Blue Jay Performance of the Meet award.  Amalfe was also seventh in the shot put as teammates Alana Merkow and Emily Swenson were fourth and fifth but those marks were good enough to be the first and second best in the conference this year.


 

 

There were a number of other high placings and performances that ranked high in the Centennial Conference standings with only two weeks to go before the championship meet.  Francis Loeb ran a personal best 18:29.70 to finish second in a field of 27 in the 5000-meter run.  Ashley Murphy’s 4:51.69 was fifth of 52 in the 1500 meters.  Leah Sibener now ranks third in the 400 meter run while Alexa Tzaferos and Megan Kelley both advanced their rankings in the 400 meter hurdles.  Tzaferos also scored in the triple jump and 100 meter hurdles.  Emily Swenson was second in the javelin and freshman Stephanie Cabral was fourth in the meet and fifth in the conference with 33.54 meters (110’).

The Hopkins women compete next Saturday in the Shippensburg (PA) Invitational where they will meet many conference rivals as a final tune up before the Centennial Conference championships.
