Women’s Track and Field Team Receives NEC Championship Rings


Members of the 2022 women’s track and field team were presented their Northeast Conference Championship rings at DeGol Field on Oct. 22 by University administrators prior to the Homecoming football game against Stonehill.

The team won its second straight NEC Outdoor Track and Field championship last spring.

The championship was held at Mount St. Mary’s last May. SFU scored 175 points at the event – 56 points higher than runner-up LIU.

It marked the fourth time in school history that the Red Flash women’s team captured an NEC title.

“The ring ceremony was a nice opportunity to relive the excitement from the NEC Outdoor Conference Championships and be together with the team,” said Tess Helms, a sophomore Education major who competed in the 1500-meter run at last spring’s finals.

“I am looking forward to this upcoming track season to keep getting faster and stronger. I am also hopeful get another ring.”

Emma Fleck was a member of the 4×800-meter bronze-medalist team at the 2022 NEC Championships.

“I thought the ring ceremony was a lot of fun and a really nice way to celebrate all of our hard work this last track season,” said the sophomore from Pittsburgh.

“I’m thankful to be a part of something as special as winning an NEC Conference Championship.”

Gold medal finishers at the 2022 NEC Championship included Carly Sedun (discus), Mylan Crews (100m), Jalurah Moore (200m), Gabby Stanavich (100h), Emily Lunger (high jump), Maddie Murphy (triple jump) and Kat McLaughlin (hammer).

Other top finishers at last spring’s finals included Jalurah Moore (second place-100m), Mylan Crews (third place-200m), Kaitlyn Maxwell (second place-800m), Gabby Stanavich (second place-400h), Maddie Murphy (second place-long jump), Olivia Conrad (second place-javelin), Josilyn Weiner (third place-javelin) and the 4x800m team consisting of Fleck, Marezy Anderson, Monica Gregg and Kaitlyn Maxwell, who posted a runner-up finish.
