LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - The UCF women's track and field team earned first place finishes in five relays as the Golden Knights concluded competition at the Disney Relays on Saturday.

Headlining the list of performances was a record-breaking effort by the 4x800-meter team of juniors Karen Kozub and Christina Jones, sophomore Kristen Zieminski and freshman Shantile Blackburn. The Golden Knights took first place in the event with a time of 9:18.56.

UCF also grabbed first place in the 4x400m, 4x200m, sprint medley and distance medley relays.

"I was very proud of our team's solid effort over the weekend," said head coach Marcia Mansur-Wentworth. "Now we look forward to two weeks off before returning to Disney to take on some of the best track programs in the country."
