Bethlehem, PA --- Julie Eagle (Rock Island, IL) captured the women's high jump title as three members of Men's and Women's Track and Field competed in the ECAC Division III Championships on Friday at Moravian.

Eagle broke the record she shared with teammate Adrianna Davis (Chelmsford, MA) by clearing 5-6 in the high jump to claim All-ECAC status and improve upon her previous NCAA provisional qualifying effort. The mark is a personal best and is currently eighth in Division III.

Noelle Richard (Oxford, MA) crossed the finish line third in the 400-meter dash with a time of 56.79. The All-ECAC performance is 19th in Division III and .11 better than the sophomore's NCAA provisional time set last week.

For the men, Jeff Baker (Wallingford, CT) posted a 10th place finish in the hammer throw with a heave of 166-8.
