Geneva, Ohio - May 24, 2019 - Sophomore Caroline Hitchcock (Agawam, Mass.) represented the Springfield College women's track and field team at the 2019 NCAA Division III Outdoor Track and Field Championships, competing in the women's high jump on Friday at the SPIRE Institute. Clearing a height of 1.70 meters, Hitchcock finished fifth overall and earned the first All-America honors of her young career.
With the fifth-place finish, Hitchcock earned the 44th All-America honor for the Springfield College women's track and field program at the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships, as well as the ninth under head coach Mike Miller, who is in his third season with the Pride.
Hitchcock is also the first student-athlete in the history of the women's track and field program at Springfield College to become an All-American in the women's high jump at the outdoor championship meet. Janet Williams was an all-american in the high jump at the indoor championships during the 1985-1986 season.
Hitchcock's height of 1.70 meters matched first through sixth place in the competition, but due to the fact that it took two chances for the sophmore to clear the height, she fell to fifth overall.
