The women’s track and field team placed second, and the men’s team placed third, at the Carla Coffey Invitational hosted by Smith College last weekend. Kianne Benjamin ’24 won the 100m (12.12) and 200m (25.13), claiming top marks in the NESCAC for this spring. Abby Mueller ’24 took first in the 5K and achieved a career best by 16 seconds, and Gracie Scheve ’25 won the triple jump (10.23m). The women’s relay team took second place with a 4.05.77 finish.

On Monday evening, the men’s lacrosse team (10–2; 8–0 NESCAC) dominated Amherst College (9–4; 5–3 NESCAC) 19–8, adding onto a string of four previous wins.
