Isabelle Dunne won her first SCIAC Championship in the 400m hurdles after back-to-back second-places finishes in her first two years, running 64.19.

Roxanne Valle won the SCIAC Championship in the 5,000m, breaking 18 minutes at 17:59.06.

Emma Yudelevitch pushed national champion Tyra Abraham in the 200m, leading with about 20 meters before being edged at the finish. She ran 24.90 for a lifetime best and the fourth best time in program history.

Earlier in the meet, Yudelevitch finished third in the 100m at 12.33. She also ran the second leg of Oxy's 4x100m team (Rachel Cockburn, Yudelevitch, LaShauna Porter and Onyekachi Nwabueze).

Porter ran through a broken ankle to help the Oxy women's 4x100m relay team that place fourth in the event. She also finished the 100m and 200m in a walking boot, scoring one point for race for the Tigers.

"LaShauna gets the meet toughness award," Bartlett said. "She ran through a lot of pain in the 4x100m to help her team score as many points as possible. I can't say enough about how impressive that was."
