Sun Devil Track & Field Closes Regular Season with Penn Relays, Desert Heat Classic


TEMPE, Ariz. – Sun Devil Track & Field wrapped its final weekend of the regular season, as Kiara Lee paced the way at the Penn Relays with a personal record in the triple jump, while Brandon Lloyd reached a new career-high of his own in the shot put at the Desert Heat Classic in Tucson.
