Ellison Represents Eagles at Open New England Championships

BOSTON, Mass. - Erin Ellison was the sole representative for Husson women's indoor track field at the 2016 Open New England Championships at Boston University's Track & Field and Tennis Center.

Open New Englands is arguably the most prestigious college track meet in New England boasting tough qualifying standards for NCAA athletes in DI, DII, and DIII.

Ellison entered the meet ranked 19th in New England and was seeded 14th on the final opening program.

Throwing her second best weight mark of the season which has seen her set the school record, she took 9th in the prelims which qualified her for the finals. In the finals she continued to throw well but her position would remain the same.

"She was the second DIII athlete in the top nine which was very impressive," Husson coach Kate Goupee said.

The Eagles will return to the track next week for their final indoor track meet of the 2016 season when Erin Ellison competes in the ECAC Championship Meet in Staten Island, N.Y.
