NEW YORK (March 1, 2019)
– Freshman Robin King (Raymond, Ohio) represented the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy women's track & field team at the 2019 ECAC Division III Indoor Championship Meet at the Armory in Manhattan on Friday. The freshman qualified for the ECAC's 5,000-meter race back in early February.

Out of the four competitors in the 5K race on Friday, King finished in second place with a time of 18:56.21. She was 20 seconds behind the winner, senior Alexis Jones of Rutgers-Camden, and just narrowly beat out third-place Sydney Ruckel, a sophomore from Salisbury, who finished just .57 seconds behind King. 

King scored eight points for USMMA towards the team's total for the meet. The meet will conclude on Saturday.
