Senior Kailia Carter started the Lions’ sprinters off strong with a 8.22-second 55-meter hurdle; this was not only a personal best, but the fastest time since 2000 for the College’s program. The time converts to an 8.84, 60-meter hurdle, which ranks second nationally. Her sophomore teammate, Kassidy Mulryne, also posted a converted time in hurdles, which ranks 10th nationally. 

Seniors Sam Gorman and Katie La Capria won their respective sprints in the 55-meters and 400-meters. Freshman Valandra Riggins won the 200-meter with a personal record of 27.23, while senior Gabby Devito won the 3000-meter with a time of just over 10 minutes. 

In the field, Mulryne and freshman Karla Gomez-Matos both improved on their personal records in the long jump.

It was a dominant showing overall by the women, as they look to continue their momentum at the University of Auburn Winter Classic at 12 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 7.
