NEW HAVEN, Conn. - On Saturday, the Wesleyan Cardinals Indoor Track and Field program competed at the Yale nvitational hosted by Yale University in New Haven.

The top performances of the afternoon belonged to Sophomore Sarah Swenson 200m (6th place in 26.66 ) and  Freshman Allegra Fils-Aime 200m (10th place in 26.89 ). Freshman Alex Dibrindisi 400m ( 6th place in 1:02.41), and Freshman Jenny Aguiar 500m (8th Place in 1:18.88 ) had solid performances. The women's 1000m run was very competitive with three Cardinal athletes, Sophomore Aida Julien (13th place 3:11.93), Senior Sydney Cogwell ( 14th place 3:14.87) and Freshman Claudia Schatz  (16th place 3:15.31 ) running very strongly in an event dominated by Div. I athletes.

The Wesleyan Cardinals  track athletes used this competition and the experience as an indicator of their readiness for this season.

Each year many of the top programs in New England ( mostly NCAA Div.I ) use the "Yale Invitational" meet as their opening meet of the indoor season. This provides strong competition early in the season for athletes and teams alike. There were strong performances, and the enthusiasm and confidence shown by all team members will serve to be a foundation for a strong indoor track season.
