CBK's Bey Continues to Run Away from the Competition

Eyota Bey With two wins and a fifth place finish in the 400-meters in the first three weeks of the 2018-19 Colgate Women’s Games, the nation’s largest amateur track and field series for women, Cedarbrook eighth grader Eyota Bey enters this weekend's fourth round of competition in contention to take a cumulative title.

Bey was among thousands of females from first grade through college and beyond from as far as New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Virginia and Georgia competing over Christmas weekend at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn.

After besting the field in the first two week's races (1:00.12 and 58.99), Bey, who's been a Colgate Women’s Games finalist since elementary school, took fifth in the third round of competition this past weekend and is just one point behind the cumulative leader.

The four preliminary meets and semi-final (Saturday, Jan. 19) at Pratt will determine the field for the final round of competition at the New Balance Track and Field Center at The Armory in New York on Saturday, Feb. 2, where trophies and educational grants-in-aid from Colgate-Palmolive Company are awarded to top place finishers in each grade division.
