Women's DMR Shatters School Record

The ladies' olympic style sports group had a few competitors acquire spots in school history in their separate occasions during the group's 2021-2022 indoor mission. At the NEC Championships, which occurred February 20-21, 2022, four ladies met up to break the past school record somewhere out there Medley Relay. The ladies to do so were Samantha LiPetri, Emma Faivre, Emma Bouvier, and Ava Mahoney.

The Distance Medley is an event in which four athletes of the same team compete as a relay, with each athlete running a different distance. The legs of the relay are 1200m, 400m, 800m, and 1600m. LiPetri was the lead leg, with a 3:53.17 split for the 1200m. Faivre took the baton from her, running a 1:00.26 400m. Next up was Bouvier for the 800m leg, finishing with a split of 2:24.24. Lastly, anchoring was Mahoney, who completed the 1600m in 5:07.68.

LiPetri, Faivre, Bouvier, and Mahoney would finish fourth overall at the NEC Championships, but more impressive is the leap they made into the top spot in program history. Finishing at a time of 12:25.36, the quad bested the previous record by more than five seconds. The now second-best time was set by Kristin Schmidt, Bethany Labossier, Kylie Chartier, and Kerry Phelan in 2016 (12:31.08).

All four athletes made their 2022 outdoor debut this past weekend, at the BSU Bears Invitational. Mahoney and LiPetri took first and second place in the 1500m, Faivre was a part of the first-place finishing 4x100 relay team and individually finished tenth in the 100m and fourth in the 200m, and Bouvier won the 800m.
