Fallon Heffernan Sets School Record in Steeplechase at Florida Relays

March 26, 2005

GAINESVILLE, Fla. - Freshman Fallon Heffernan (Neptune Beach, Fla.) set a new JU record in the 3000-meter steeplechase to lead the Dolphins at the rain-shortened Coca-Cola Florida Relays at the Percy Beard Track. Heffernan finished second in the event with a time of 10:58.14, topping the mark she set last week at the FSU Relays.

The meet had high school events cancelled on Friday due to rain, while Saturday's washout was the first time a full day had been called off since 1996.

Junior Lindsey Moffenbier (McDonough, Ga.) ranked seventh in the 10,000-meter run with a time of 39:06.10, the only other notable performance from the weekend.

The Dolphins travel to Tampa for the USF Invitational Saturday, April 2.
