ORLANDO, Fla. (3/22/13) – Freshman Julia Ratcliffe set an Ivy League record in the hammer throw as the Princeton women's track & field team opened the 2013 outdoor season today. The Tigers competed at the University of Central Florida at the conclusion of a week-long spring training trip.

Ratcliffe threw to 63.99 (209-11) on her third attempt. All five of her throws were over 61.50. She threw better than 28 competitors, including the national runner-up, Brittany Smith of Illinois State. Smith was second behind Ratcliffe, as the senior threw to 63.89 (209-7).

A native of Hamilton, New Zealand, Ratcliffe also set the Ivy League record in her first indoor meet in the weight throw.

The previous Ivy record was 202-11 set in 2011; while the previous school record was 194-4 recorded by Emma Ruggerio in 2011.
