Indoor track athletes run at Colgate

None of the local indoor track and field teams that went to Colgate University Saturday for one more Mohawk Valley Indoor Track Association meet would get close to the top.

Kelsey Hatch was fifth in the 600 as Rifendifer ran to sixth in the 300 and Kate Vineall sixth in the 55 hurdles.
