The College of New Jersey Athletics - Lions in stride earning NCAA cuts
Larry Ellis Invitational…
TCNJ was also well represented at the Larry Ellis Invitational hosted by Princeton University with the Lions shining in the women’s 800 meters. Junior Stephanie Herrick (Wayne, NJ/Wayne Valley) finished third in the race with an automatic NCAA time of 2:10.44 and teammate Jianna Spadaccini (Butler, NJ/Butler) was 14th with a NCAA provisional time of 2:14.75. Freshman Meryl Wimberly (Farmingdale, NJ/Colts Neck) added to the strong showing in the event taking 20th in the large field with an ECAC worthy time of 2:15.75.
Junior Martine McGrath (West Long Branch, NJ/Shore Regional) added a fifth-place finish in the 5,000 meters with a time of 17:55.06. That time met ECAC standards.
