MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Senior Jordan Hamric
shattered the school record in the 3,000-meter steeplechase Friday evening at the Stanford Invitational in Palo Alto, Calif.
Hamric placed seventh in section two of the event with a time of 10:17.58 and broke the previous school record of 10:25.93 set by Susan Davis in 2006 by eight seconds.
“Jordan ran a great race tonight. She knew she had a shot at breaking 10:20 if things went well for her and clearly, they did,” coach Sean Cleary says. “Jordan knew Susan (Davis) from her high school days at Preston High and holds her to the highest of standards. Replacing one of the greatest female athletes in WVU history should be commended.”
Junior Sarah Martinelli
and senior Aubrey Moskal
also competed Friday evening on the Cobb Track in the 5,000-meter run. Both posted personal-best times in section three of the event with Martinelli placing 24th with a time of 16:45.66, while Moskal finished 31st with a time of 17:14.93.
Senior Sarah-Anne Brault
was the final competitor for WVU in the 10,000-meter run. Brault finished in 26th place of section one of the event with a time of 34:56.70.
The Mountaineers will split up next weekend with the jumpers heading to the Tiger Track Classic in Auburn, Ala., on April 5-6, while the rest of the team travels to the Don Frail Invitational in Marietta, Ohio on April 6.
