Blacksburg, Va. -- University of Lynchburg's indoor men's and women's track & field teams continued their assault on the Old Dominion Athletic Conference's top times list over the weekend at the Virginia Tech Challenge, the teams' final tune-up before next weekend's conference championships.

Hornet athletes broke into the league's top five in seven events, including top ODAC marks in two.

The men's 4x400-meter relay was one of those to top the ODAC chart after a 3:25.21 jaunt, good enough for third at the meet. Junior Kevin Moran (Milford, N.J.), senior Conor Cahill (Staunton, Va.), sophomore Kobe Anderson (Katy, Texas), and sophomore Jordan Short (Madison Heights, Va.) combined for the effort.

Freshman Jessica Cammarata (Ledgewood, N.J.) finished the women's 400-meter dash in 59.21, a second-best time in the conference when adjusted for track size and bank. Cammarata's mark ranks fifth all-time at Lynchburg in the event.

Two more Lynchburg men posted top-five marks in the ODAC over the weekend, as senior Tristan Lucy-Speidel (Fort Valley, Va.) finished the 1-mile in 4:22.41 to take second on the league leaderboard and sophomore Julian Douglas (Lynchburg, Va.) leapt 21-9 in the long jump to tie his season-best and ODAC's fifth-best mark.

The Lynchburg women also performed well in the final regular-season meet of the indoor campaign, led by freshman Zoe Scales (Danville, Va.). Scales bounded 34-7 in the triple jump to take over fourth on the ODAC leaderboard and tie for ninth all-time at Lynchburg in the event. She also covered the 60-meter hurdles in 9.39 seconds after making the final heat in the event, taking fourth at the meet and finishing just off her season best.

Freshman Donzailya Berg (Stephens City, Va.) put up the season's second-best long jump mark in the ODAC at 16-11 ½, taking over ninth all-time on Lynchburg's indoor leaderboard.

The distance-running trio of sophomore Kaitlyn Johnson (Spotsylvania, Va.) and seniors Samantha Schreiber (Gladys, Va.) and Morgan Watson (Concord, Va.) teamed up to finish third, fourth, and fifth, respectively, in the women's 1-mile. Johnson's 5:14.47 race ranks second in the ODAC and third on Lynchburg's all-time list. Schreiber finished at 5:19.71, another personal best to rank sixth on the program's all-time leaderboard, and Watson's 5:25.61 race was just off her own personal best.

The Lynchburg teams will be back in action next Sunday, Feb. 24 at Roanoke College's Cregger Center to compete for the ODAC championship. The Hornets are looking for the first indoor men's title since 2014 and the first women's crown since 2011.
