Most track and field spectators look forward to the fast-paced 200-meter dash or the competitive 4x400-meter relay. However, on Saturday, the athletes on the inside of the track were the ones to watch.
Foster wasn’t finished after the 400-meter hurdles, however. Competing in the 400-meter run on Saturday, Foster ran a career-best 54.47 seconds to capture her second victory of the weekend. Junior Julia Hall also ran a career-best time of 55.52 seconds to finish third in the event, while sophomore Emma Lane rounded out the top five, posting a 57.84.
In the Black and Gold Invitational, the men’s program fielded two of the career-bests, while the women had five. Fifth-year senior Bailey Baker recorded 47.20 meters on her discus throw. While senior Kayla Keane didn’t break the top-10 in the 3,000 meters, she did break her personal record for a 10:02.60 time. Freshman Sydney McGinley got a 14.42 on the 100 meter hurdles for a top-10 finish. Sophomore Chloe Foster followed suit with a top-three finish but with a 59.33 in the 400-meter hurdles.
