– Sophomore Rita Ciambra (Hanover, N.H.) jumped to a third-place finish for the University of New Hampshire women’s outdoor track and field team at the ECAC Outdoor Track and Field Championships at Princeton University’s Weaver Stadium on May 16-18.

With six points, the Wildcats finished 34th out of 47 teams, while the University of Connecticut won the meet with 83 points.

Ciambra placed third in the pole vault by clearing a height of 3.85 meters, tying the school record she set April 5 at the Wildcat Invitational I. The mark was the second best of the event, but Ciambra needed more attempts to clear it than the runner-up.

Freshman Camille Quarles (Derry, N.H.) placed 14th in the triple jump with a leap of 11.95 meters.

Sophomore Ashlee Lathrop (Sherburne, N.Y.) was 22nd in the hammer throw with a toss of 47.80 meters.

Freshman Megan Donohue (Stratham, N.H.) finished 15th in the 400-meter hurdle preliminaries in one minute, 2.56 seconds.

The Wildcats’ 4x800-meter relay team placed 15th in the preliminaries in 9:14.83. The 4x400-meter relay team finished 30th in the preliminaries in a time of 3:57.51.

Senior Kiah Quarles (Derry, N.H.) placed 23rd in the preliminaries of the 100-meter hurdles, finishing in 14.65 seconds.

Junior Sarah Hall (Nottingham, N.H.) finished 29th in the 200-meter preliminaries in 25.02 seconds.

Five Wildcats, including Ciambra, seniors Bobby Edgerton (Cornish, N.H.) and Matt O’Connor (Rhinebeck, N.Y.), and freshmen Brice Paey (Milton, N.H.) and Mike Simon (Bethel, Conn.) from the men’s side, will return to action May 30-31 at the NCAA East Regional at Florida State’s Mike Long Track in Tallahassee, Fla. The top five in each event will move on to the NCAA national championship June 11-15 at Drake University’s Drake Stadium in Des Moines, Iowa.
