College track & field

UD women win CAA title: The University of Delaware women’s track & field team captured its first CAA meet title since 2014.

“It’s hard to put things into words right now. I woke up two days ago with a gut feeling about this group and to see the efforts put forth all weekend, it was incredible,” said coach Wendy McFarlane-Smith.

Seniors Alexis Lipnicky (javelin) and Caesar Rodney High grad Jeanette Bendolph (800m), along with freshman Halima Scott (200m) all won individual gold for the Hens. In total, Delaware took 16 medals: three gold, six silver and seven bronze.

Lipnicky got things started on Friday night with a personal-best throw of 143’ 1” to win the javelin.

On Saturday, Bendolph set a meet record in the 800 meters, clipping the line in 2:08.69, it’s the fourth-fastest time in school history and nearly two seconds better than her previous personal best.

Scott had a big meet for Delaware, starting with a second-place finish in the 400 (54.08). With just a few events left and the Hens narrowly ahead, the freshman won the 200 to help clinch the team title.

Also for UD, Smyrna High grad Myrissa McFolling-Young placed fourth in the discus (151’ 3”).
