NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The Quinnipiac University women's indoor track team competed in the distance medley relay in the first day of Yale's Annual Giegengack Invitational on Friday night at Coxe Cage. The Bobcats qualified for the ECAC Championships as they placed fourth in the DMR.

Quinnipiac ran an overall time of 12:03.92 in the DMR, which allows the Bobcats to compete in the event at the upcoming ECAC's on March 3-4 at the Reggie Lewis Center in Boston, Mass. Four Bobcats represented Quinnipiac in the DMR, including junior Becca White (Natick, Mass.), who ran the 1,200-meter leg in 3:36, while freshman Katy Petrie (Cranston, R.I.) finished the 400-meter leg in 63.8 seconds and freshman Rebecca Stabile (Haverhill, Mass.) ran the 800-meter leg in 2:15. Senior Morgan Roche (Clifton Park, N.Y.) rounded out the Bobcats as she completed the 1,600-meter leg in 5:07.

"We were very excited to put this group of girls together for the first time this season," said head coach Carolyn Martin. "The girls ran a great race and we are all looking forward to them racing again together and dropping their time down even faster."

The Bobcats return to action when they participate in the Dartmouth Indoor Classic on Saturday, Feb. 4 at the Leverone Fieldhouse in Hanover, N.H.
