Points of Pride for the current Men’s and Women’s Track & Field Teams
- This year the men are hosting the New England Division 3 Indoor Championships on February 20-21, 2015 at our Indoor Track Facility.
- In the spring the men and women will be hosting the Outdoor ECAC Men’s and Women’s Outdoor Track & Field Championships May 14-15, 2015 on Blake Track Facility.
- In men’s track the team is a young one, led by some talented upperclassman. This year we have seen John Dayton, in the 35 pound weight, break a school record and lead NCAA Division 3 in best throw in that event throwing 63’10”. Sophomore Alex Niemiec has jumped well in high jump (6’8”) and long jump respectively. Brandon Hammerstrom has qualified in shot put and weight for several championships throwing personal bests in both events.
- The women are also a young team led by some talented upperclassman. Junior Samantha Pomroy is closing in on 500 and 600 meter Springfield College Records. Junior Abby Wright has been lowering her mile time from high school of 5:30 to 5:12. Senior Amanda Martin has been continuing her outstanding jumping in long and triple jump with hope of making NCAA Championships in March and May.
