Over the weekend, the Kentucky Women’s Track & Field competed at the NCAA Championships in Eugene, Oregon, finishing with a school record runner-up finish. While seniors Kendra Harrison and Dezerea Bryant highlighted the championships for the Wildcats, as mentioned in posts here and here yesterday, I wanted to shed light on how other Wildcats finished to help lead Kentucky to their best finish in school history.
- Leah Nugent earned the bronze medal in the 400m hurdles with a time of 55.82.
- Keilah Tyson placed 7th in the 100m with a time of 11.21
- Sha’Keela Saunders captured the bronze medal in the long jump with a mark of 22 feet, 1.75in.
- Rebecca Famurewa finished 7th in the discus with a mark of 181’9’’
Again, congratulations to the women as well as the men in their historic seasons. With Coach Edric Floreal behind the helm of Kentucky Track, more great things are sure to come!
