BOSTON, Mass. – Navy women’s track and field freshman Amanda Agana (Fayetteville, Ark.) garnered All-East honors in the 500-meter run on Day Three of the ECAC Championship on Sunday at Boston University’s Track and Tennis Center.
“I am proud of the way Amanda [Agana] competed both days,” Navy head coach Carla Criste. “Hopefully she can carry her success into the outdoor season to help us stay competitive in the upcoming meets.”
Agana ran her best 500-meter race in her freshman campaign to date, placing fifth with a season-best time of 1:13.56. Agana’s time garnered Navy’s lone All-East performance and was 0:01.17 seconds off the program record mark.
Sophomore Ashanti Curry (Jacksonville, N.C.) finished 13th in the shot put, recording a throw of 43ft-2.5in (13.17m). Senior Crystan McLymore (Raleigh, N.C.) also placed 13th in her respective event, recording a mark of 38ft-6in (11.73m) in the triple jump.
Senior Meghan Harvey (Nottingham, Pa.), who was looking to build off her program-record breaking 1,000-meter preliminary time, did not race in Sunday’s final due to the flu.
Agan’s fifth-place finish garnered four team points to land Navy tied-for 42nd overall at the meet. UConn won the team tile with 62 points. Albany (48.5), St. John’s (48), James Madison (48) and Hampton (45) rounded out the top five.
Navy will have three weeks prepare for its outdoor season when it hosts a home meet on Saturday, March 26.
