COMPLETE NESCAC RELEASE

Following the completion of the NESCAC Men's and Women's Track and Field Championships last Saturday at Williams College, the NESCAC has announced its 2015 All-Conference Teams. The top-three finishers in each event during the championship receive All-Conference recognition.

On the women's side, a total of 12 Panthers were honored by the conference. Taking home individual event crowns were Alison Maxwell and Carly Andersen. Maxwell was victorious in the 5,000-meter run with a time of 17:31.82, while Andersen tossed the javelin to a winning distance of 138'3". Andersen's conference winning toss was just ahead of runner-up Devon Player, who launched the spear 133'11".

In addition to Player's second-place effort, the Panther women recorded three additional runner-up efforts. Adrian Walsh was the second to cross the line in the 10,000-meter run (36:27.98), while Sarah Guth stopped the clock second in the 1,500-meter run (4:38.52). In the same event, Maxwell was right behind Guth in third (4:39.37). The 4x800-meter relay team of Nicole Schachman, Lauren Bougioukas, Guth and Robin Vincent posted a time of 9:19.80 for second-place honors.

Also garnering all-conference honors with third-place finishes were Paige Fernandez in the 400-meter hurdles (1:04.21), and the 4x400-meter relay quartet of Halle Gustafson, Fernandez, Jackie Kearney and Alexandra Morris (3:58.54).
