He addeed three more 3-point shots to give him 97 this season. Cook finished the game with 13 points, four rebounds, and a steal. 

Competing at the ECAC Championships in Boston, Dystant became the first Blazer athlete to place in such a competition. Her time of 3:04.66 was good enough for fifth place, and a new school record. That was close to four seconds faster than the previous standard of 3:08.35, set by Dystant earlier this season. 

Over the past month, she has taken off over 10 seconds from the 1,000 record that had been in place since 2010. Dystant ran a 3:11.38 to eclipse the old record of 3:15.35 on February 15th, then followed up the next weekend with a time of 3:08.35.
