Records Fall in Raleigh for Wildcat Women’s Track & Field
RALEIGH, N.C. – For the second consecutive day and for the fifth time this season, the Davidson women’s track and field team lowered a program record, adding two more in the final day of the Raleigh Relays Saturday at the Paull Derr Track & Field Facility.
Wildcat junior Anna Smith reset the standard in the 400-meter hurdles, stopping the clock at 1:01.94, breaking a 20-year-old record set by Melissa Miller in 2001. Davis took second in her section and ninth overall in an impressive day for the Clarkesville, Ga., native.
The next record to fall came crashing down in the 4×400-meter relay. The team of Rachel Horowitz, Marquia Humphries, Grace Loehr and Bianca Nolde-Lopez raced the baton around the 1600 meters in 3:46.40, the sixth fastest time of the meet. Loehr and Nolde-Lopez were both on the previous record-setting team, along with Katie Hines and Tori Long. On Friday, Nolde-Lopez reset the 400-meter run record in 55.64 seconds.
Davidson returns to the track Thursday, Apr. 1 for the opening day of the Vertklasse Meeting at High Point University.
