Track & field wraps up FSU Relays
The Dolphins broke the 4x400-meter relay school record and freshman Joane Pierre won the 800-meter to lead the JU track & field team on Saturday at the FSU Relays in Tallahassee, Fla.

Freshman Charlene Charles along with juniors J’Zotta Rolle, Danielle Davenport and Unique Singleton won the 4x400-meter relay with a new school standard of 3:40.24. They broke the previous record of 3:41.03 set on May 13, 2006 in Gainesville, Fla.

After breaking the 1,500-meter school record yesterday, Pierre wrapped her meet with a time of 2:12.15 to win the 800-meter.

“The 4x4 was a perfect way to end the weekend,” said JU head coach Ron Grigg. “We had strong performances in several areas. We look forward to improving on this as we progress through the season.”

Rolle also took third in the 400-meter hurdles with a time of 1:00.86, while Singleton was fourth in the 200-meter with a 24.86. Junior Louise Kiernan was sixth in the 200-meter (24.92) and seventh in the 100-meter (12.01).

Freshman Amalia Vogler (2:15.65), sophomore Anastasia Fokia (2:16.19) and senior Alyssa Deal (2:18.51) took the sixth through eighth spots in the 800-meter to round out JU’s meet.

JU will return to action on April 2 as the Dolphins compete in two different meets. A portion of the team will compete at the Florida Relays in Gainesville, Fla., while the other half will be at the Spike’s Classic in Daytona Beach, Fla.
