WALTHAM, Mass. - Competing against 11 other highly competitive Division II and III schools, the Husson women's indoor track & field was led by first-year Norah Garvey as the only individual Eagle to score for the Green and Gold while helping her team bring home a point in the 4x400-meter relay, as well. The Eagles took 12th place at the Reggie Poyau Invitational hosted by Brandeis University.

Finishing in sixth place for the highest ranking of the day for the Eagle squad, Garvey paced a 600-meter run to a mark of 1:49.25 to bring home a point for Husson. She was also the lead leg in the 4x400-meter relay team of rookies that took seventh overall for another point. Willow Whitten, Rosie Train, and Payton Goodwin were all huge contributors in achieving the 4:32.62 relay time.

Goodwin was the only other Eagle to finish the day with two top-ten individual finishes as she took seventh in the 800-meter run with a time of 2:40.60. She then went on to capture ninth with a 5:58.12-mile run. 

In the field, Allison Kondracki gathered up two top-ten finishes in the jumping events. She landed just shy of scoring in the triple jump with her seventh-place leap of 10.12 meters. She pushed off for a 4.73-meter long jump good enough for ninth. Over in pole vault, Lisa Pawlowski succeeded in clearing 2.35 meters (7th) which also left her just shy of scoring and Megan Bataran threw for two tenth place distances. The junior sent the shot put sailing 9.68 meters through the air and the weight throw marked down at 10.98 meters. 

Husson will continue competition next Friday, January 17th at the Bates Invitational in Lewiston, Maine.
