UCF Closes Out First Weekend of Outdoor

Final Results

ORLANDO – Records were broken and medals were won as the UCF track and field team put a bow on its opening weekend of outdoor Saturday afternoon by wrapping up play in the Black and Gold Invitational at the UCF Track Complex.
UCF's Katie Pinnell won gold in the 800m race after posting a time of 2:10.86. Two other Knights posted top-10 finishes in the event behind Pinnell as Cydni Turner finished sixth with a time of 2:13.82 and Brittany Floyd finished 10th at 2:15.10 (a new personal best for her).

Although she didn't win the gold in the 3000m, Valerie Lastra's second place time of 9:58.73 marked both a new personal best as well as a school record, topping Lastra's previous best of 10:00.58.

In the 2000m steeplechase, Brenna Mullaney topped her previous personal best by nearly 40 seconds, placing third in the event with a time of 7:15.40.

Rounding things out, Ciara Holback placed third in the 100m relay with a new personal best of 11.40 seconds, Asherah Collins and Jasmine Scott-Kilgo both posted top-five finishes in the triple jump after leaping for 12.66m and 12.64m, respectively, and Kiah Williams and Samieryah Bradwell both set new personal bests in the 400m race as Williams finished second with a 53.65 time and Bradwell placed fourth after clocking in at 54.80.

The Knights will be back at the UCF Track Complex next weekend as the team hosts the Knights Invite from March 25-26.
