The women’s track and field team claimed its first-ever North Coast Athletic Conference (NCAC) outdoor title with a decisive 260-point championship performance. The second-place team was bested by more than 70 points during the competition held in Greencastle, Indiana. The Yeowomen boasted winning performances by Imani Cook-Gist, Jillian Doane, Rayna Holmes, Lilah Drafts-Johnson, Oona Jung-Beeman, Emily Kelly, Monique Newton, Ana Richardson, and Ave Spencer. This title comes on the heels of the team’s first-ever NCAC indoor championship win in March and completes an indoor-outdoor NCAC championship sweep.
