Lodge, Sullivan set school records at ECAC/IC4A Championships

BOSTON – Senior Melissa Lodge (Hopkinton, Mass.) bested her own school record in the mile twice as the Bryant University track & field team competed in the ECAC/IC4A Championships this weekend at Boston University's Tennis & Track Complex.

COACH SWITZER'S COMMENTS:

"Ending the Indoor season with two new school records is an exciting feat, but also having Melissa score in the Mile is a huge accomplishment. We've had a great Indoor season, and I am excited about what the team can accomplish in just a few weeks during Outdoor."

TOP PERFORMERS (MEN)

  • Freshman Chris Fasano (Lake Grove, N.Y.) threw for a distance of 14.85 meters in the shot put. 
  • Senior Ryan Poholek (North Attleboro, Mass.) finished the mile in a time of 4:17.69.

TOP PERFORMERS (WOMEN)

  • Lodge bested her school record in the mile during qualifying, finishing the event in 4:52.54. She followed that up by breaking the record again in the finals, logging a time of 4:51.25. Lodge finished fifth overall and earned a medal at the ECAC Championships.
  • Sophomore Jacklyn Sullivan (Plymouth, Mass.) ran the 800-meter in a time of 2:12.17, faster than the time she qualified with and topped her own school record in the event.

MEET NOTES

  • Both Lodge and Sullivan set personal and Bryant bests over the weekend.
  • Lodge's fifth-place finish is the highest ever at the ECAC Championships by a Bryant athlete.
