Knights Set Records at Indoor Debut

CLEMSON, S.C. The UCF track and field team opened its indoor season with a trio of records at the Clemson Invitational on Friday.

Charlotte Crook kicked off the indoor season with a record-setting 1,000-meter run. She better the UCF record in the event by more than four seconds, crossing the line in 2:52.20 for fifth place.
Not only did the Knights claim the top two spots in the 400-meter dash, but both Knights captured school records with their performances. Latasha Smith blazed to victory in 53.16, not only a personal best and school record in the event, but also the fastest Division I 400m mark by nearly an entire second this season. Kiah Williams took silver and set the UCF freshman record in 54.46.

Rayniah Jones used a pair of personal bests to advance to the finals in both the 60-meter dash and the 60-meter hurdles. Jones matched her prelims best in the hurdles to finish sixth in 8.19. She lowered her time in the 60-meter dash to 7.32 to finish seventh.
Four of the five Knights in the long jump opened the indoor season with personal bests, and all five finished in the top 20.  Jasmine Scott-Kilgo took the bronze with a personal best 20-1/6.12m, which moved her into third on UCF's career indoor performers list. Leiya Green joined Kilgo in the top five, using a personal best 19-5.25/5.92m to move into eighth on the indoor performers list.
Lillian Holtery and Camryn Williams made their UCF indoor debuts with top 10 finishes in the mile. Holtery ran 5:04.83 to finish fourth and Williams finished ninth in 5:13.86.
UCF returns to action on Saturday, beginning with the high jump at 11 am. Track action begins at noon at the Clemson Indoor Track and Field Complex.
