Freshman Bernice Boateng (Danielson, Conn.) had quite a day as well, placing seventh in the 60-meter (8.14) and setting a new school record in the process. She also ran a personal best 27.81 in the 200 meters. Elliana Boebel (Bedford, Mass.) was the top finisher on the day, placing third in the shot put.
