Abby Salvadore finishes fifth at New England Regional

Williamstown, MA - Northern Vermont University-Lyndon javelin thrower Abby Salvadore (Plymouth, NH) finished in fifth place for the second consecutive season at the NCAA Division III New England Regional Track & Field Championship, held this weekend at Williams College.

Salvadore recorded her best mark of the season with a throw of 40.02 meters.  Katy McClellan of Smith College won the event with a mark of 45.78 meters.

Hornet head coach Hayden Bunnell remarked "Abby started off well and held her own today.  Her arm started to bug her after the first flight, so she struggled on some of her throws, but was able to hold on to 5th place."

The top 22 throwers in the nation will qualify for the NCAA Division III National Championships, to be held in Geneva, OH, May 23rd through 25th.
