ALBANY, N.Y. – With the squad split between two meets Saturday, the University at Albany women’s track and field program boasted 13 ECAC qualifying marks and nine event victors between the Upstate Track and Field Classic hosted by RPI and the UTech Classic in Kingston, Jamaica.

At RPI, sprinter Ashlee Maduro qualified for ECACs, running a 12.71 in the 100m dash, good for second place in the race.

Bellon and White also piloted the winning 4x400m squad with an ECAC worthy 4:05.28 time. Senior Kendra Adams and freshman Breanna Cummings ran the other two speedy legs.

In the 400m dash, Adams paced the field with a mark of 1:06.27, qualifying for ECACs, and was followed closely by teammate Paige Vadnais’ second place finish (1:07.86).
