Navy Claims Two Stars In Outdoor Track & Field Sweep

ANNAPOLIS, Md. – The Navy track and field team posted a dominant performance on Saturday as both the men's and women's teams won the Army-Navy Outdoor Star Series Meet as part of the annual Star Series presented by USAA. The men's team won 110-93, while the women completed the sweep with a 115-88 victory.
It is the eighth consecutive outdoor win over the Black Knights for the men's team, while it is the fifth straight outdoor victory over Army for the women.
"We had it rolling today and the team competed its heart out," Director of Navy Track and Field Jamie Cook said after the meet. "I am really proud of what they have done and what they have accomplished this year. We've had some setbacks and the team has had to show some resiliency coming out here and performing the way they did today."
"Army is a great team. They beat us indoors and we beat them outdoors. As I told the team, you have to take advantage of days like this and celebrate your victories because we know how bad we felt (during indoors). I am proud of our student-athletes and our coaching staff because they put in a lot of work. It was a fun time today."
The men's team tallied 42 IC4A qualifying marks on the day, while the women posted 22 ECAC qualifiers. In addition, the team posted 19 performances that rank in the school's top 10, highlighted by freshman Breanna Mealer's (Severn, Md.) school-record distance of 5.96m (19-06.75) in the long jump.
Navy track and field returns to action on Saturday, April 13, as the Midshipmen head to Fairfax, Va. for the George Mason Spring Invitational.
