NORTHFIELD, Minn. – The Carleton College women’s track and field team won six events at the St. Olaf Triangular as the Knights took part in their first meet of the 2018 campaign. Both Meg Mathison (So./Waunakee, Wis./Waunakee) and Sid Holder (Fy./West Orange, NJ/Phillips Academy) won twice.

“I am very impressed overall with the young talent on the team,” said Carleton head coach Donna Ricks, “combined with our veterans, this should look to be a very fun season.

“The first-year distance runners demonstrated that they have more speed on the track then I anticipated, and many of them competed for the first time in indoor track. The sprint and jumps corps is going to be fun to follow this season. We are developing depth, and they are talented. It is apparent that they have a passion for the sport.”

Mathison and Amanda Mosborg (Fy./Edina, Minn./Edina) finished 1-2 in the both the 1000-meter and mile runs. Mathison posted times of 3:05.97 and 5:14.94, respectively, while Mosberg clocked in at 3:07.70 and 5:18.86.

Holder had quite the collegiate debut, prevailing in the 200-meter dash with a time of 27.19 and taking top honors in the long jump with a distance of 5.03 meters.

Senior Abby Sharer (Sr./Millstone Township, NJ./Princeton Day) won the 800 and ran a strong leg on the Knights’ 4x400-meter relay.

“(Abby) has worked very hard, and I'm looking for her to have a strong season,” said Ricks.

Erica Blackett-Thomas (Fy./Wellesley Hills, Mass./Wellesley) won the high jump after clearing 1.52 meters in her collegiate debut.

Carleton next competes on Saturday, Jan. 27 at the Minnesota State-Mankato Open.
