Women’s Track and Field Claim Second Consecutive Indoor Star

WEST POINT, N.Y. – The Navy women's track and field team recorded a 98-83 victory over Army on Saturday at Gillis Field House in the annual Army-Navy Indoor Star Series Meet, which is part of the overall Star Series presented by USAA. It was the first road win for the Mids in the series since 2013 and the first time Navy posted consecutive indoor victories since the Midshipmen recorded nine consecutive wins from 2006 to 2014.
The 98 points scored by Navy was the most since the Midshipmen posed a 104-77 win in 2014 in Annapolis. It was the most points scored in West Point since tallying 103.5 points in a victory in 2011. Navy won nine of the 17 events on the day, including earning max points in seven events.
"I honestly didn't know how it would go," Director of Navy Track and Field Jamie Cook said after the meet. "With us only having one meet against an opponent because we got a late start, it is very hard to have a good gauge. I think our team competed exceptionally well. I thought our coaching staff did a phenomenal job preparing our athletes.
"We did some good things on the women's side. Everybody stepped up, which is what we hoped would happen. We got some really good leadership from our captains and a good job preparing from our coaching staff. Sam Orie had a school record in the weight throw. Unbelievable job and leadership today. This win is based off the attitude and effort of our kids, and the phenomenal job of the coaching staff who put in a ton of extra time and extra thought into this meet."
Navy started off the day with a second-place finish by Lindsay Lewis in the long jump, posting a distance of 5.70m (18-08.50). The Midshipmen earned second place in the weight throw as Sam Orie recorded a school-record distance of 19.49m (63-11.50) in the event.
In the high jump, Hannah Lowenstein and Molly Chapman tied for first place in the high jump, both notching heights of 1.66m (5-05.25).
