Men’s, Women’s Track & Field Teams Set Meet, School Marks

Amerigo Rossi

Five Columbia underclassmen led the men’s and women’s track and field teams to fourth and fifth places, respectively, in the Metropolitan Intercollegiate Track and Field Championships at the 168th St. Armory Feb. 8.

  • Sophomore Kara Kerr turned in the third-fastest mile in school history to win that event. Her time of 5:08.77 bested the field of 15 competitors and was a personal best by nearly five seconds.

  • Junior Amerigo Rossi posted a 4:14.04 mile to win that event.

  • Junior Jon-Mychal Bowman ran 7.68 to take third in the 55-meter hurdles. The time was the second-fastest in Columbia history, and was 0.14 seconds off the school record.

  • First-year Barbara Nellenback raced to the second-fastest 1,000m in school history when she placed fourth. Her time of 3:00.81 was just over a second off the Columbia record of 2:59.53 set by Michele Smith in 1993

  • Sophomore Sarah Feeley cleared five feet, six and one-half inches to win the high jump. Her mark bested the meet’s field of nine competitors. Feeley established a new school high jump record when she cleared five feet, seven and one-quarter inches two weeks ago at the Princeton Relays. She has qualified for the ECAC Championships in Boston Mar. 7–8.
