'Cats Set Several PRs at Dr. Toms Invitational
LYNCHBURG, VA – The Randolph College women's track and field team competed at the Dr. Jack M. Toms Alumni Invitational on Saturday, going against some of the top teams in the region, along with Division II schools. The WildCats were able to set several personal bests and one school record.
The throwers had a tremendous day, with Trevanna Berryman continuing her success. She finished with the silver in both the shot put and the discus, reaching marks of 38'0.25" and 121'1.75" respectively. The distance in the shot put was an outdoor PR, along with an outdoor school record.
Teliya Stevenson and Rebecca Webb also had strong days in the shot. Stevenson set a new career-record, throwing 35'5.75" for eighth-place in the event. Webb added a record of her own, throwing the shot 33'1.25". Kayla Wilhelm rounded out the new PRs in the hammer throw. She came in at 106'1.5" for a first-place finish in her flight.
Impressive marks also came on the track, especially for Jalil Penn and Jordan Sheets. Penn set a new personal best in the 100-meter dash, coming in at 13.66. It just missed out on a qualifying mark for ODACs. She also ran in the 200 and set another PR, coming in at 28.07. That mark was just behind Sheets, who barely eclipsed her in the race with a new best of 27.85.
Sheets made her biggest mark earlier in the day in the 400-meter race. She crossed the line with the 11th-best time of 27 runners. The time of 1:02.59 was a new PR for her, and it missed the WildCat record by three one-hundredths of a second.
Michaela Saunders ran in the 800-meter race and just missed out on a best. She finished 15th with a time of 2:41.54.
Randolph will be back in action next weekend. The WildCats will travel to Bridgewater College for the Doc Jopson Invitational.
