Assumption College Greyhounds
WORCESTER -- Assumption's Department of Athletics has announced that Mikaylah Schwartz, of Dracut, was named to the 2018-19 Women's Track & Field roster. Schwartz, Class of 2021, is competing during the Greyhounds' spring season.
The Assumption Women's Track & Field team relied on its youth and depth to compile one of the best indoor seasons in program history, culminating with the program's first-ever runner-up finish at the Northeast-10 Championships in February. Over the course of the season, the team set 16 new school records, and Abby Jones '19 earned an invite to the NCAA Division II Indoor Track & Field Championships in early March. The team looks to build on its successful indoor season when they move to outdoor competition this month.
"Coming off our best indoor season ever, expectations are high leading into outdoors," said Head Coach Trent Baltzell. "This is the time of year where we can really begin to train to the best of our ability. The clear-cut goal for this team will be to take home the NE10 Championship trophy in early May, a goal that is on the mind of every member of the team. The women are more focused than ever before at practice, something that can be attributed to the confidence we earned from a successful indoor campaign. I am also pleased by their academic performance as the women maintain a focus on their studies."
