PITTSBURGH-The University of Pittsburgh women’s track and field team competed at the Colonial Relays in Williamsburg, Va., and at the Pepsi Florida Relays in Gainesville, Fla., on Friday as senior Cambrya Jones ran a school record time in the 200-meter dash.
Jones ran an impressive time in the 200-meter dash at the Florida Relays with a fourth-place finish and a time of 23.10. Her time eclipses Kimberly Lyles’ school record of 23.35 set in 2003.
“We had a pretty good showing in both meets,” Pitt head coach Alonzo Webb said. “The competition at the Florida Relays was a big test for a lot of our student-athletes. We responded well with a solid meet.”
At the same meet junior Elizabeth Kline ran a Big East qualifying standard of 14.46 in the 100-meter hurdles.
At the Colonial Relays, sophomore Mariame Conde finished 15th in a very competitive field with a mark of 1:05.74 in the 400-meter hurdles.
The Panthers will conclude competition in both meets on Saturday, April 7.
