Track & field completes FSU Twilight on good note
The JU track & field team posted three school record performances in its final meet before the A-Sun Championships on Saturday evening at the FSU Twilight in Tallahassee, Fla.

Freshman Charlene Charles along with juniors J’Zotta Rolle, Danielle Davenport and Unique Singleton won the 4x400-meter relay with a program-best time of 3:39.18. Charles posted a time of 55.6 in her split, while Rolle was at 56.4. Davenport had a 54.1 in her split and Singleton rounded out the final leg with a 53.0.

Freshman Joane Pierre (4:29.10) and sophomore Anastasia Fokina (4:30.00) each broke the existing school record time in the 1,500-meter

“We brought two individuals and a relay team to this meet and all three broke a school record,” said JU head coach Ron Grigg. “This was a great tune up for the conference championships and hopefully preliminaries of the NCAA Regionals in two weeks.”

Earlier this week, the Dolphins throwers briefly competed at the UCF Twilight on May 6 before the meet was called due to rain.

Juniors Hillary Phillips (132’06”) and Hillary Crook (125’1”) along with freshman Sarah Schunter (120’4”) took the third through five spots in order in the discus.

Phillips had a toss of 158’11 to finish second on the hammer, while Schunter placed fourth with a 128’4”.

The Dolphins will now turn their focus on winning their fifth straight outdoor title at the A-Sun Championships starting Friday at UNF’s Hodges Stadium.
