University of Southern Indiana’s Kaylee Lane and the women’s distance team proved to be impressive at the UAB Vulcan Invite held in Birmingham, Alabama Saturday.
The Freshman, Lane, set the tone for the remainder of the meet with a blazing time of 58.44 in the 400-meter finals which put her into sixth place. Lane’s mark in the 400m was a new USI record besting the previous fastest time of Natalie Clark (59.80) set 15 years ago in 2005.
Jennifer Comastri (5:03.80) and Hope Jones (5:05.57) nabbed the top two spots in the mile to continue to propel the team’s momentum.
The Screaming Eagles dazzled in the 3000m finals with Doriane Langlois (10:18.04), Mckenna Cavanaugh (10:33.42) and Hadley Fisher (10:35.94) took third, fourth and fifth place respectively.
In the field events, Freshman Miranda Anslinger notched a top-ten finish placing eighth with a leap of 5 feet, one inch to close out the day.
