Winston-Salem, N.C. – The Lions track team only traveled a handful of athletes to the UCS Invitational at the JDL Fast Track in Winston-Salem, NC this weekend.
This meet was billed as "one of the fastest meets in the south" and it
did not disappoint as it hosted multiple NCAA D1 teams along with D2
and NAIA teams as well.
The Lions weekend was started off by Sarah White (SR/Cleveland, Ohio) who took 12th overall
in the 800m and came back later in the day and clocked her fastest
600m in 1:40.36 and won her heat.
Grif Rutherford matched his fastest indoor 800m posting a 2:00.64.
James Eliezer also ran his fastest times for indoor in the 200m and
The 3,000m was the final race of the day for the Lions. Jessica
Stockton and Tyler Boone (JR/Murfreesboro, Tenn.) both ran solid races, with Stockton cutting nine
seconds off her fastest time this year. Boone finished 13th overall in
the men's and also matched his fastest time of the season.
"The Lions ran well this weekend in the meet. I expected a little more
out of some but everyone we took ran and competed well," said Head Bryan Cross Country and Track and Field Coach, Josh Bradley. "I'm excited to see how they will compete in the future."
