Class of 2002
Women&s track & field
Robin was nominated by coach Barbara Hartwig after she tied the school record in the pole vault event Saturday 8212; the women&s first outdoor track meet of this season. She vaulted 2.67 meters to win the event and qualify for the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference championship meet later this spring. The result was more than satisfactory to her teammates, Hartwig and herself.
&She set a school record and qualified for a post-season meet on a cold and damp day 8212; a day that is not really conducive to good jumping,& Hartwig said.
This history major from West Baldwin, Maine admits that her focus is mostly on track, work and classes because of her busy schedule. However, like many UR students, she does make time for one thing.
&I do try to make time for &Survivor& every week,& she said.
Robin has been competing in track and field for seven years and has been a Yellowjacket for three. Her experience gives her a hunch that the women&s team will do well in their season. &I think our team can really pull together … regardless of the weather, and Saturday is a great indication of more great things to follow,& she said. &Hopefully, it&s all up hill from here.&
