The Women's Track and Field team placed second at the Western Maryland relays and outperformed the men's team, which placed fifth out of the nine teams competing at the event. According to the Dickinsonian article by Tom Speranza, Coach John Cantalupi was pleased with the outcome, especially given that "some of his runners did not compete." The women's team set a new school record against Franklin and Marshall College in the 4x1600 meter relay with runners Julie-Lynn Wirth, Linda Grant, Linda Reinman, and Helen Turner.
In 1985, the Women's Track and Field team had an overall record of eight wins and three losses in, according to an article in the Dickinsonian, "its third season of intercollegiate competition." Head Women's Coach John Cantalupi and coaches Larry Moser, Don Nichter, and Bill Nickey led the team of 21 females through a successful season. Highlights of the year included junior Linda Reinman's recovery from anemia during the 1984 season and subsequent outstanding performance in 1985.
