Geneva, Ohio – Trinity College senior sprinter Morgan Hallow (Charlotte, N.C.) and junior shot putter Peace Kabari (Manchester, N.H.) both earned All-American honors with top-eight finishes to lead the Trinity College Bantams to a tie with St. Thomas (Minn.) for 31st place over three days in the 2019 NCAA Division III Women’s Outdoor Track and Field Championships at Mount Union University’s SPIRE Institute. Kabari totaled eight points with a second-place performance in the shot put on Friday, and Hallow collected the ninth and final Bantam point with an eighth-place finish in the 400-meter dash today. Both received All-American recognition for their outstanding efforts. Loras won the team title with 53 points.
“It was a historic year for our women’s program and capping it off at the National Championships with five individual competitors was really amazing, said Trinity Head Coach John Michael Mason. “I couldn’t be more proud of the these young women. Returning home with 4 top-10 National finishers, including two All-Americans, has made some positive noise for Trinity Track & Field in the region and on the national stage.”
Kabari registered a College-record toss of 49’05.75″, which was just 1.25 inches shy of first and 2.50 inches better than third place with her fifth of six throws, to get the Bantams on the board Friday afternoon. Hallow finished eighth in the finals today with a time of 57.26, after qualifying yesterday with a time of 56.45. Bantam senior Anna Barnes (Storrs, Conn.) also competed in a finals race today, jumping two runners from the qualifying heats and coming in 10th place in the 1,500-meter run with a time of 4:36.77 that was 3.1 seconds shy of eighth place. Trinity sophomore high jumper Isabel Bruno (Winchester, Mass.) competed yesterday and finished 22nd with a height of 5’01.25″. On Thursday, Barnes qualified for the 1,500-meter finals with qualifying time of 4:40.26 to grab the 12th spot by .74 seconds, and Trinity junior Devan Walsh (Danvers, Mass.) barely missed the finals cut in the javelin with a 10th-place distance of 133’02”.
