KINGSTON, R.I. – The Quinnipiac University women’s indoor track and field team participated at the University of Rhode Island Invitational on Saturday, Jan. 21. The Bobcats’ performances were highlighted in the 500-meter run where freshman Rebecca Stabile (Haverhill, Mass.) set a school record as she placed second in 1:18.58.
“We were really happy with today’s performances,” said head coach Carolyn Martin. “After two weeks of working really hard, the ladies were running on tired legs, but still hitting fast times.
