Scoring Finishes in Steeplechase, 3k


PRINCETON, N.J. – On the first day of the ECAC Championships at Princeton, Yale had two incredible performances. Sophomore Anne Lovelace set a new school record in the 3,000-meter steeplechase and senior Alexandra Cadicamo ran a new personal record in the 5,000-meter run.

Lovelace finished seventh in the 3,000-meter steeplechase in 10:27.60, which sets a new school record. The previous record of 10:29.40 was set in 2004. Lovelace's previous personal best had been 10:38.21.

Cadicamo also ran a great race for a huge personal best of 16:44.02 for fifth place. This puts her on Yale's all-time top-ten list, and places her under the NCAA Regional qualifying mark. Her previous best time had been 16:56.26.

Scoring a combined six points for Yale, the two long-distance runners will rest for the remainder of the weekend as preliminary rounds take place on Saturday and finals on Sunday. A complete schedule and results can be found here.
