KINGSTON, R.I. - Four point scoring performances and four personal bests highlighted the A-10 Championship opener on Saturday afternoon. The Minutewomen were kick started by Becky Stoyle in the pentathlon when the sophomore placed seventh and scored a 3303 in the event.

Soon following Stoyle, Sarah Bierly did not back down from the spotlight of the championship meet and turned in a solid performance in the pole vault. The freshman set a height of 10-feet, 10-inches and set a new personal best in the event. Bierly finished the event tied for fifth place.

Once again the Minutewomen had their talent on display in the long jump, UMass landed a pair in the top eight. Katherine Finnegan led the way for UMass in sixth place with a leap of 18-feet, 5-inches. The senior was the followed by Ashley Palmer in eighth place leaping 17-feet, 11.5-inches.

UMass also set three more personal bests that just fell short of scoring for the team. Emma Riedel ran a time of 7.97-seconds in the 60 meter dash. Meghan Patrolia also set a personal best but in the 60 meter hurdles, finishing the event in 9.38-seconds. Kelsey Crawford also set a new personal record in the pentathlon with a score of 3080.
