Stengle wins Female Performer of the Meet
ROANOKE, Va. - On a cold and windy day the Catholic University women's track and field team managed to take third place at the Roanoke Invitational. The Cards scored 105 points which placed them behind Roanoke (217) and Thiel (109.5) in an 11-team field. Senior thrower Kim Stengle (Old Bridge, N.J./Old Bridge) started her final outdoor season with a bang taking home three firsts, a second and the honor of Outstanding Female Performer of the Meet.
Distance was the key for CUA with the runners turning in many top performances. Jenna Hacket was second in the 5000 meters running a 19:29.03 while Alys Cheatle was second in the 10,000 with a 43:27.37. Samantha McClellan and Mary Shashaty finished third and fourth in the 1500 meters with a 5:15.70 and a 5:19.60, respectively. Kristen Kennedy was one of the few Cardinals to take first in an event with a 1:10.40 in the 400 hurdles placing her in the top position.
The field events belonged to Stengle who qualified for the ECAC Championships in both the javelin and hammer. Stengle won the shot put with a throw of 11.10m and the hammer tossing 40.58m. She was also first in the javelin with a 36.05m and second in the discus throwing 34.92.
The Cards will run at the Bridgewater Invitational next weekend.
