MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - The West Virginia University track and field team completed its second, and final day, of competition at the Raleigh Relays in Raleigh, N.C., earlier this evening.
A total 114 Division I, II & III schools and more than 4,000 men and women competed in the two-day meet.
“This meet was a nice opportunity for the team to get outside in good weather,” says coach Sean Cleary. “I was pleased with a number of performances despite not having been outside for training.”
For the Mountaineers, senior Chene Townsend was back in action for the first time this season after redshirting during the indoor season. Townsend didn’t disappoint, as she placed second in the 100-meter hurdles with a time of 13.59.
“It was nice to have Chene back in the lineup after not having indoor eligibility,” Cleary says. “Chene looks to be in great shape and has certainly worked hard over the winter months.
“I look forward to the next few weeks when we will see the rest of our group opening up.”
The Kingston, Jamaica, native finished third in the prelims on Friday with a mark of 13.73 to qualify for Saturday’s finals. Her time on Saturday was less than a tenth of a second off her time posted in her most recent competition at the NCAA East Preliminary meet last May.
In the 1,500 meters, senior Sarah Martinelli placed seventh with a personal best time of 4:26.35. The 1,500 meters had more than 190 participants in the event. Martinelli, a native of Morgantown, W.Va., placed seventh overall at the Big 12 Indoor Championships last month in the 1,600 meters.
Sophomore Marsielle McBeam placed fifth in high jump with jump of 1.70 meters. McBeam recorded her personal-best mark in the event during the indoor season with a mark of 1.72 meters.
