Dec. 6, 2013
Bronx, N.Y. -The Stony Brook men's and women's track and field teams combined to finish first in five events Friday at the Fordham Quad Meet. Freshman Shi-Anne Humes shined in the first indoor meet of her career, grabbing first in the 200-meter dash in 26.2 seconds and teaming up with sophomore Megan Gallagher, freshman Megan Fielder and sophomore Daneen Small to take second in the 4x400-meter relay in 4:15.5.
"It was a typical opening meet of the season," track and field head coach Andy Ronan said. "There was a little bit of everything, just like the movie, The Good, the Bad and the Ugly."
