BOSTON -- The Bates women's track and field team shattered the school record in the indoor distance medley relay Friday night at the Valentine Invitational at Boston University. Bates' time of 12:05.93 beats the former mark of 12:19.99, set in 2003.

Running the race for Bates were first-year Katie Bash (Wallingford, Pa.) in the 1,200-meter leg, sophomore Izzy Alexander (Harvard, Mass.) running the 400-meter leg, senior Jen Caban (Bedford, Mass.) running the 800-meter leg, and senior Kathryn Moore (Pelham, N.H.) running the anchor 1,600-meter leg.

The quartet also easily met the provisional qualifying time for the NCAA Division III Championships.

The former record-holding team was composed of Julie Dutton, Kathleen Nugent, Kim Whipkey and Kelley Puglisi.
