Northeast 10 Indoor Track and Field Report: Week 6 

EASTON, Mass. (February 7, 2018) – Stonehill College's women's track and field distance medley relay team was named the Northeast-10 Conference Women's Relay Team of the Week this week, as announced by the conference on Tuesday.

The 4000-meter distance medley relay team consisting of Elizabeth Hannon (Franklin, Massachusetts/Bishop Feehan), Krista Fernandes (Taunton, Massachusetts/Coyle and Cassidy), Jillian Caiazzi (Marlborough, Massachusetts/Marlborough), and Anna Lastra (Bridgton, Maine/Fryeburg Academy) finished second behind Boston College with a time of 11:56.76 at the New England Championships this past weekend earning All-New England. Hannon kicked off the relay with an unofficial 3:37.8 1200-meter split, while Fernandes ran an unofficial 57.9 400-meter sprint, which was one second difference from the NCAA provisional mark for the 400. Caiazzi followed taking the 800-meter third leg with a time of 2:16.2, and passed off the baton to Lastra for the anchor leg finishing with the mile leg with a time of 5:04.8.

The quartet is currently ranked first in the Conference, while also bypassing the NCAA provisional mark of 12:05.41, good for 13th on the NCAA Division II Indoor qualifying list. This is also the third-straight year that the DMR has posted an All-New England time.

Hannon also competed in the mile run finishing 15th out of the 32 competitors with a personal best time of 5:05.43, while Lastra was right behind the junior with her time of 5:05.71. Caiazzi and Hannon also earned an All-New England honor competing in the 4x800-meter relay as that quartet placed fifth with a time of 9:13.38.
