LOUISVILLE, Ky. -
Behind 13 event titles, the University of Louisville track and field teams completed a weather-shortened day at the Lenny Lyles/Clark Wood Invitational on Friday evening at the Cardinal Park Track and Soccer Stadium.
"It was a great day of competition by four highly contested teams, and we almost got the meet in," head coach Ron Mann says. "We were disappointed we had to stop it because of the weather, but we were fortunate to get the competition in.
"We have one more weekend of competition before the BIG EAST Championships, and we will be ready."
For the second-straight week, senior Rachel Gehret registered a pair of victories in the jumping events. The Altoona, Pa., native cleared 1.77m/5-9.75 in the high jump and then leapt a season-best 6.18m/20-3.50 in the long jump for the wins. It is her second win in each event this season. Megan Schubert (1.71m/5-7.25) and Maggie Gilbertson (1.63m/5-4.25) placed third and fourth, respectively.
Also taking first in the jumps group were Kyle Gann (pole vault) and Neil Angermeier (high jump). Gann, who set the school record in the event last week, cleared 4.90m/16-0.75 for the win, while Angermeier jumped over the bar at 2.03m/6-8 to take first.
Success continued in the field events, as Weston Banks (shot put), Josh Greenwald (discus), Khadija Abdullah (shot put) and Chinwe Okoro (discus) each won their respective competitions.
On the men's side, Banks registered a throw of 17.15m/56-3.25 for the victory; he took second in the discus. Greenwald had a season-best mark of 53.50m/175-6 to take first.
On the women's side, Abdullah cruised to first, beating the competition by more than a foot after charting a toss of 16.29m/53-5.50. Okoro, who won the discus on a season-best toss of 50.31m/165-1, took second in the shot put. D'Ana McCarty also had strong finishes, placing second in the hammer throw (61.22m/200-10), third in the shot put (15.89m/52-3.25) and fifth in the discus (46.93m/154-0).
On the track, the Louisville women opened competition with a quick victory. The quartet of Margret Harris, Gehret, Chelsea Brown and Saravia Richardson placed first in the 4x100m relays, winning in a time of 45.68. It was nearly one-and-a-half seconds better than the runner-up finish.
Richardson's success did not stop there, as she also placed first in the 100m dash, registering a season-best time of 11.65, and the 200m dash, with a time of 24.21. Harris was on her heels, taking runner-up in both events. She clocked a time of 11.82 in the 100m and 24.78 in the 200m.
Similar to her success at the Texas Roadhouse Border Battle, Brown raced to a first-place finish in the 400m hurdles, with a season-best time of 59.96. Gabrielle Jackson took second after completing the race in 1:00.23.
The other first-place finish on the track came from Luke Lovelace, who had a sizeable win in the 1,500m. He finished in 3:52.00, more than four seconds faster than runner-up Matt Bruce, who had a time of 3:56.61. Lovelace placed second in the 800m in a career-best time of 1:55.04.
The Cardinals return to action next week, as the team will split squads. Part of the team will head to the Drake Relays in Des Moines, Iowa, the site of the 2011 NCAA Outdoor Championships, and the other group heads to Philadelphia, Pa., the site of the 2011 BIG EAST Outdoor Championships, for the prominent Penn Relays.
