COLLEGE

UTICA, N.Y. -- Northern Essex Community College track star Olivia Mullins, of Plaistow, N.H., broke a college record at the NJCAA National Championships held at Mohawk Valley Community College last weekend.

The freshman elementary education major placed 10th at the NJCAA Track and Field Nationals, running the 1,500 meters in a time of 5:26.91. She broke a Northern Essex school record set 11 years ago in April of 2007 by Laura Rudd, who ran it in 5:35.99.

Katelyn Richardson of Wilmington, a deaf studies major, who competed in the high jump, finished in a three-way tie for sixth place in the high jump as she cleared a height of 1.34 meters. She is the current school record holder in the event as she had cleared 1.42 meters earlier in the season.
