Women's Track and Field Has Good Showing at Indiana Relays
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Led by a record breaking performance by senior Liz Codrington (Gretna, La.), the Belmont women's track and field team competed well over the weekend at the highly competitive Indiana Relays. The Bruins notched 13 top-25 finishes at the two-day event.
Codrington set a new Belmont record in the triple jump with a mark of 11.90m (39'.5"), topping the one she set last year. The jump, which earned her fourth-place in the event, is currently the second longest in the Atlantic Sun. In the high jump, freshmen Jilian Linklater (Lake Orion, Mich.) and Brittany Woods (Franklin, Tenn.) finished sixth and 10th, with marks of 1.58m (5'2.25") and 1.53m (5'0.25"), respectively.
Highlights on the track side included the reigning Atlantic Sun Track Athlete of the Week, junior Caitlin Standifer (Plano, Texas), standing out again, this time as the top Bruin in the Mile run, finishing 17th in a deep field with a time of 5:08.07. Her time is now the best in the A-Sun in the event. Sophomore Kimberly Muldowney (Hoover, Ala.) took 21st in the same event with a time of 5:18.73. Her sister, junior Nicole Muldowney (Hoover, Ala.) nabbed an 11th-place finish in the 3000m, with a time of 10:31.58, good enough for third-best in the conference. Senior Kara Sephel (Nashville, Tenn.) finished 18th in the same event with a time of 10:48.51.
