CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Freshman Dom Balzora-Rivert (Templeton/Narragansett Regional HS) and sophomore Abby Forman (Altamont, N.Y./Guilderland HS) achieved top-ten finishes while competing for the Bentley University women's outdoor track and field team during Saturday's Sean Collier Invitational at MIT.

Balzora-Rivert was fifth of 13 in the triple jump with her distance of 32'9.75" moving her to ninth on Bentley's all-time list in the event. It improved on her previous collegiate best by five-and-a-quarter inches.

That relay team also included junior Monica Levy (Merrick, N.Y./Calhoun HS) and freshmen Chantel Lewis (Bronx, N.Y./Manhattan Center for Science and Math) and Kayla Fraser (East Longmeadow/East Longmeadow HS).

Forman was the sixth of 21 runners to cross the finish line in the 400 meters, finishing in 1:03.26. She also ran the 200 with her time of 28.28 a new PR and good for 16th out of 41.

Also in the 200, Lewis was 13th (28.04) and Levy followed in 15th (28.15).

In the 1500, freshman Abbie Newman (Hanson/Whitman-Hanson Reg. HS) covered the distance in 5:05.79 and finished 13 among 49.
