BOSTON, Mass. – Junior Julia Morena (Boylston/Tahanto Reg. HS), sophomore Marianne Bartolotta (Wantagh, N.Y./Holy Trinity HS) and freshman Stephanie Mattson (Smithfield, R.I./Smithfield HS) were among the members of the Bentley University women's indoor track and field team who set new personal bests during the John Thomas Terrier Classic at Boston University Friday night.
Morena ran the 3,000 meters in 10:42.55, the tenth best recorded in the Northeast-10 Conference this season and good for 15th on Bentley's all-time list. It bettered her existing PR by about 45 seconds.

Bartolotta achieved the season's eighth fastest 1000 meter time in the NE-10 with a 3:11.38, a PR by about five seconds.
Sophomore Courtney Wilson (Morrisonville, N.Y./Beekmantown Central HS) improved on her PR by three-quarters of an inch in the triple jump. Her 33'10" was tied for seventh on Bentley's all-time list and 11th best in the conference to date. Wilson also cleared 15'2.25" in the long jump.
