F&M Competes at ECAC Championships

TROY, N.Y. – Rebecca Swisher was impressive in the pole vault event for the Franklin & Marshall women's track team and Evan Friend was just as impressive for the men's track & field team at the 2014 ECAC Championships hosted by Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) on Thursday. Swisher and the Diplomats currently sit in 16th place with six points out of 37 teams, while Friend only competed in a qualifying race and did not compete in any races for points yet.

Swisher's vault of 3.70 meters was good for third place out of 22 participants, while Friend's time of 10.83 in the 100-meter dash was a personal best and earned him a spot in tomorrow's final. 

Friend will compete in the 100 and 200-meter dash tomorrow to finish up competition for F&M at the ECAC Championships.
