LC Indoor Track and Field Prepare for ODACs at VMI Winter Relays

LEXINGTON, VA– With the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Indoor Track and Field Championships around the corner, the LC men's and women's track and field teams got one last preparation at the VMI Winter Relays on Saturday.  The Hornets competed well at the Relays which featured some of the top teams in the area.

On the women's side, the throwers continued their strong winter season.  In the shot put, junior Kori Penick finished second (40'1.25"), and sophomores Britney Gulick and Kelsey Hughes finished fifth (35'5.25") and sixth (32"11.75) respectively while competing against several Division I athletes.  In the weight throw, sophomore Emily Davis finished third with a career-best toss of 43'10.5".  Freshman Ashley Thomas also had a career-high in the weight throw, with a heave of 38'3.5".

In other women's events, junior LaCear Hubbard won the triple jump and the long jump competitions.  Hubbard jumped 36'7" in the triple jump and 17'9.5" in the long jump.  She currently sits 23rd in the nation in the triple jump and 27th in the long jump.  Freshman Aleshia Washington finished second among Division III athletes in the long jump with a distance of 17'0.5".  Washington sits in second place in the ODAC, behind only Hubbard.  Hubbard also finished second in the 55 meters.  Fellow Hornet Kristen Marbury had a strong showing in the 55 meter sprint with a time of 8.27 seconds.

The same story can be said about the men's throwers that have been written all winter.  In the shot put, junior Eric Van Dunk won the event, with sophomore Greg Wilson and senior Ralph Davis following him. Van Dunk threw the shot 49'11.75" which was a career best and puts him second in the ODAC, behind Wilson.

In the weight throw, the Hornets took the first four spots and sixth place as well.  Davis won the event with a toss of 55'4.25", and he was followed by Wilson, junior Gordon Merck, and Van Dunk.  Wilson and Merck threw season bests of 49'1.5" and 48'10" in the event, which ranks them behind only Davis currently in the ODAC.

In other men's events, freshman Vinny Mwano finished fourth in the 55 meter hurdles in a time of 8.83 seconds.  In the pole vault, junior Tyler Richardson and freshman Daniel Walters tied for fourth with a height of 10'5.5".  Walters set a career-mark with that clear.

The LC men's and women's track and field teams will compete next week at the ODAC championships, which take place at Liberty University.  The men will be looking for their 15th straight ODAC Indoor title and 26th overall, while the women will be trying to win back-to-back championships and their ninth overall.
