Meinertz helps RIC relay team earn LEC weekly track honors

SMITHFIELD – Smithfield’s Rebecca Meinertz, a junior distance runner on the Rhode Island College women’s track and field team, recently helped the Anchorwomen’s 800-meter relay team set a school record in a time of 10:21.58 at Bryant University’s Black & Gold Invitational on March 31.

The relay team, which also consisted of East Greenwich junior Margaret McCaffrey, Cranston junior Nicole Grammas, and Cranston freshman Shayna Cousineau, was also named the Little East Conference’s Women’s Relay Team of the Week for its fine performance.

Meinertz, a 2015 graduate and former standout runner at Smithfield High, earned All-LEC honors last fall with the RIC women’s cross country team.
