Anne-Marie Blaney also snatched a top-five finish late last night at the Stanford Invitational, breaking her own school record in the 10,000-meter run with a time of 33:24.33. Her new career-best time topped her previous best by nearly 45 seconds.

Rosie Chamberlain took seventh in the 800-meter run, running 2:05.27 against a stacked field. Five of the six runners that defeated the English native compete professionally.

UCF also had success in their relays at the Pepsi Florida Relays, earning a fifth-place finish in the 4x200-meter relay and 11th in the 4x100-meter relay. Briana Vaughn, SheKara Martin and J'Nea Bellamy competed on each of those relays, while Alissa Williams ran on the 4x100 and Cessily Jones was on the 4x200m.

The Knights return home next weekend for a dual meet against Illinois on Saturday, April 9.
