    The women’s team had several top three finishers during the meet. Junior Sade-Mariah Greenidge took second in the 60-meter hurdles with a 8.52-second mark. Teammates Alicia Perkins and Amber Sellers finished in fifth and sixth place with times of 8.75 and 8.85, respectively.

    The women’s 4x400-meter relay team, consisted of Kiersten Brewer, Kelli Hardnett, Ngozi Onwumere and Mayorca Young, finished third with a time of 3:43.27.
