LAWRENCEVILLE, New Jersey -- Sophomore Deborah Boerke took first place in the 400-meter hurdles, leading the Marist College women’s track team at the Rider Invitational, held on the windswept Rider campus on Saturday afternoon.

Despite the persistent, strong wind, Boerke was able to navigate the race faster than the field of 36 competitors, posting a time of 1:04.42. She was also part of two scoring relays – the third-place 4x100 team and the fifth-place 4x400 team.

Other top individual scorers included Jenna Robinson (800-meter run), Bryn Gorberg (1,500-meter run) and Fallon Quigley (high jump).

The women’s track team returns to action next week at the Mt. SAC Relays in California on Thursday and the Bucknell Bison Classic in Lewisburg, PA, on Friday and Saturday.
