SEATTLE – The Utah track & field team had a solid weekend at the UW Invitational, closing out the weekend inside Dempsey Indoor with a top-10 finish and movement into the all-time record book.
Chloe Shewell got the Women of Utah going in the right direction Saturday morning by crushing her PR in the 400m with a run of 57.66 to win her heat by two seconds and place eighth-overall. Meanwhile, Madi Durrant posted a mark of 59.82 in her first 400m race as a collegian.
Over in the 800m races, Millie Wilcox was just shy of setting a new personal record and finished with a time of 2:12.29. Annie Murdock also saw action in that event and posted a mark of 2:17.30.
Freshman Kyla Martin made a splash in her collegiate indoor debut, vaulting herself into sixth on the all-time list at Utah after registering a mile time of 4:47.30 while taking third in her heat. Fellow freshman, Grace Moroney wasn’t far behind Martin with a mark of 4:51.38 – which was good for second in her heat.
The sprints crew will be on full display next week as they head to Lincoln, Neb., for the Frank Sevigne Husker Invitational (Feb. 2-3). Meanwhile, a handful of Utes will head north just a couple hours for the Speed and Power Meet on Saturday, Feb. 3.
