Severe Weather Shortens Pepsi Florida Relays
GAINESVILLE, Fla. Severe weather in the Gainesville area shortened the Pepsi Florida Relays as the Eagles concluded competition at the Percy Beard Track on Saturday.
Georgia Southern faced stiff competition all weekend, which aided the Eagles in setting numerous season bests.
Junior Shauntel Jennings (Stone Mountain, Ga.) posted the fastest time of the season for GSU in the 800m with a time of 2:16.76, while teammate Amber Wilson (Calhoun, Ga.) turned in a season best time of 14.76 in the 100m hurdles.
In the 400m hurdles, senior Carla Ballard (Morrow, Ga.) recorded a season best racing to a time of 1:02.01. Consisting of Ballard, Abby Bloom (Snellville, Ga.), Jennings and Kellie Wesson (Douglasville, Ga.), Georgia Southern’s 4x800m relay team finished in sixth place with a time of 9:22.58.
GSU sophomore Jessica Irizarry (Kennesaw, Ga.) finished in second place of the “Section B” javelin with a distance of 126’02.00”.
The Eagles return to the track Saturday, April 12 when they travel to Clemson, S.C. for the Solid Orange Classic.
