NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Field hockey senior captain Katie Van Nostrand (Derry, N.H.) participated in the 2010 Ragnar Relay, with former Quinnipiac field hockey stand-outs Jillian Carroll and Shannon Whittemore, on May 21-22, 2010. The race, a 180-mile trek from New Haven, Conn. to Boston, Mass., was completed in 24 hours.
Van Nostrand's team, SWAT (Sweaty, Whiney and Thirsty), ran in memory of Shane Condon, a close friend of Whittemore's who passed away last fall. The team finished 45th out of 83 in the mixed division and 104th out of 190 teams overall. Whittemore completed her eligibility at Quinnipiac in 2007 while Carroll graduated from Quinnipiac in 2008 after a four-year career.
