NEW LONDON, Conn.—The Babson College men's and women's track & field teams set a pair of school records and qualified for the NCAA regional championships in two events on day one at Connecticut College's Silfen Invitational.

First-year Colin Regan (Rochester, N.Y.) placed seventh in the 3000-meter steeplechase, running 9:55.48, to lower his own school-record and classmate Colin Cianciolo (East Greenwich, R.I.) ran a season-best 1:57.02 to win his heat of the 800-meter run heat and his ticket to the NCAA regional championships.

In the throws, first-year Sean Kennedy (Weymouth, Mass.) led the way for the Beavers with his toss of 139-feet, 5-inches in the Javelin, while junior Sean Rezendes (Scituate, Mass.) was the Green and White's top long jumper with a distance of 19-feet, 11.75-inches.

In her 3000-meter steeplechase season-debut, sophomore Camille Lewis (Cheshire, Conn.) reset her school-record running 12:24.23, classmate Emma Cavanaugh (Southbury, Conn.) ran over half a minute faster in the 5000 meters with an NCAA regional qualifying time and lifetime-best 18:04.57, and junior Stephanie Rodriguez (Guatemala City, Guatemala) ran a season-best 4:56.68 in the 1500-meter run.

The Green and White will begin the second day of competition at Connecticut College on Saturday at 8 a.m.
