GREAT FALLS — The University of Providence hosted its only track and field meet of the season at Memorial Stadium on Thursday. The Carroll College women took the team title.

Boos will be joined by teammates Shana Cosby and Peyton Jones at the NAIA Outdoor Track and Field Championships later this month.
