Nighthawks Continue Strong Showing at Dartmouth Invitational

DARTMOUTH, Mass. - For the second week in a row, Nighthawks sophomore Desiree Snead (South Easton, Mass.) earned a second-place finish in the 100-meter hurdles, running in a time of 15.29, at the UMass Dartmouth Invitational.

Snead's second place is her second of the outdoor season. Only Bridgewater's Jayci Andrews bettered the 100-meter hurdles time of Snead, winning the race at 14.87. Snead also took home an eighth-place finish in the long jump with a distance of 4.86 meters.

A pile of sixth-place finishes came between the men's and women's team at the Dartmouth Invitational. Men's runner, sophomore Geralson Withrow (Mystic, Conn.), competed in the first-ever 10,000-meter run for the program, grabbing a sixth-place finish in a time of 38:09.89.

Women's high jumper, sophomore Mary Jok (Lynn, Mass.) was next to claim a sixth-place spot. Jok cleared the bar at 1.45 meters for her sixth-place mark.

The men's 4x100-meter relay team grabbed sixth-place with their time of 45.69, just shy of a program record. Juniors Malik Francis (Kingston, N.Y.) and Babyboy Davis (Philadelphia, Pa.), as well as sophomore David Jean (Malden, Mass.) and freshman Brent Myers (Bismark, N.D.) combined in the 4x100 relay.

The 3,000-meter steeplechase, run by freshman Anthony Crocco (Trumbull, Conn.), provided a program record in the event for the Nighthawks. Crocco finished 11th but his time of 12:12.15 is a new program mark.

Newbury men's and women's track & field return to action on Friday, April 5 at the Regis Spring Classic.
