Alumna Danielle Asaro Breaks 5th Marist Record

Trying to fight off a cold and cough Thursday night Danielle was considering not competing at The Boston University Valentine Invitational Meet on Friday, Feb. 13.  However, the BU Valentine UnknownInvitational is the biggest event of the season with approximately 50 schools attending from as far north as Ottawa, Canada to as far south as Florida State and Danielle did not want to miss it. Furthermore, BU has one of the best tracks around.  With only two meets left to the indoor season Danielle was determined to run.

And so she did.  After a disappointing 60m result she collected herself and set out with determination in the 200 meter.  With the usual advice and encouragement from Coach Dad, “remember you’re the Bolt” and “Run your ass off” (hey good advice), and a reminder to remember what Coach Elliott said, its about turnovers, she was off.

Getting off to a lightning fast start, Danielle kept pouring on the speed around the turn and down the straightaway accelerating to the finish line to win her heat and cross the line in 25.68 seconds. Another Marist school record had fallen as women’s team captain Danielle Asaro shattered the old 200-meter school record of 26.02 set by Chrissy McDevitt in 2007.  Danielle’s time was .57 seconds faster than her previous indoor personal best.  Danielle now holds five school records.
