Mullarkey Earns All-America in Mile

Caitlin Mullarkey '09 earned All-America honors in the mile run, finishing fifth at the NCAA Division III Indoor Track & Field Championships in Terre Haute, Ind., Saturday afternoon. Sporting her brilliant red hair in a high ponytail, she started on the outside of the track in alley two, immediately dashing low to get position behind the two leaders at the starter’s signal. After posting a time of 5:00.16 in the finals, Mullarkey became the second Swarthmore female to be All-America for indoor track, joining Imo Akpan ’02, who received the honor for 400 meters in 2002. more An honors biology major from Wilmington, Del., Mullarkey won a Rhodes Scholarship for 2009 and will study at Oxford University in the fall. Mullarkey is a McCabe Scholar and captain of the women's soccer team, which won the 2008 ECAC South Region Championship last fall. She also holds the school 5,000-meter steeplechase record in women’s track-and-field.
