OVC Tune Up

OVC Tune Up

CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. -- The Belmont women's track and field team used a strong set of performances at the second day of the Austin Peay Governors Invitational as preparation for the upcoming OVC Outdoor Championship.  The Bruins recorded a sixth-place finish after collecting 15 top-15 finishes.

Strong performances on the track pushed several Bruins to new PRs, including senior Anna Carrigan (Alexandria, Ky.), who took second in the 400m Hurdles with a time of 1:03.89 and freshman Kiera Weems (Murfreesboro, Tenn.), who placed third in the 1500m (4:43.37).

Junior Emily Davis (Murfreesboro, Tenn.) won the 400m with a time of 56.55.  In the 800m, junior Jessie Wynn (Peoria, Ill.) took third while classmate Megan Huning (Westlake Village, Calif.) was seventh, setting a new PR.

Belmont's 4x400m Relay team of Anna Carrigan, Emily Davis, Jessie Wynn, and Rachel Perry picked up a second-place finish (3:53.11).

"This was probably one of the better weekends in terms of great performances.  Our athletes in California did really well, and we had some racers step up big time today at Austin Peay," said Belmont's Director of Cross Country and Track & Field Jeff Langdon.

"We're really proud of how our guys and girls pulled together and came out of this meet with a lot of fantastic numbers," said Associate Head Coach Cameron Harvey.

Belmont returns to action the weekend of May 15 at the OVC Outdoor Championship, hosted by Austin Peay.
