TRACK & FIELD

Senior captain Camille Coklow (Chicago, Ill.) wrote herself into the Mount Holyoke College track & field record books on Saturday, becoming just the second runner to earn All-America honors twice in her career for the Lyons. She finished third overall in Saturday's 60-meter dash finals at the 2016 NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships, posting a school record time of 7.62 to edge out four other competitors in the field of eight. It also marked the second straight All-America honor for the sprinter, who was sixth in the event in 2015. Mount Holyoke returns to action on March 26 when it opens its outdoor season at the Wesleyan Invitational.

 

LACROSSE

The Lyons shouldered a loss against Westfield State (11-5) to open their home schedule last week. Leading the effort for MHC was senior captain Julia Bell (Longmeadow, Mass.), who recorded two goals. Mount Holyoke (0-2) is back in action on Tuesday when it squares-off against Fitchburg State at 11am in Clermont, Fla.
