Track teams compete in Duke Invitational

Both the Hopkins men and women’s track and field teams participated in the Duke Invitational meet this past weekend against talented, mostly Division I competition.

Highlighting the women’s squad was senior Annie Monagle, who ran the nation’s fastest 800-meter time.
