Lesbian Sprinter Wins Two NCAA Titles in Bradenton Event

| June 7, 2017

Merrimack College sprinter Carly Muscaro finished her collegiate track career June 2017, winning two national NCAA titles. She won the 400 meters (51.90 seconds) and the 200 meters (23.40 seconds). The 200-meter national title at the NCAA Division II Track and Field Championships was her second title of the day and the sixth NCAA title of her Merrimack College career.

Muscaro, who came out as a lesbian after her junior season, said “You have a vision for yourself, and I visualized winning both. And when I finally did it — and it was my last collegiate race ever and my last NCAA nationals ever — it was just a sigh of relief, and I was happy that I had done what I had done.”

She also won the 200- and 400-meter indoor national titles this season. In 2016, she won indoor and outdoor 400-meter titles representing Merrimack, which is in North Andover, Massachusetts.
