Utes Post Several PRs on Opening Day of Pac-12 Invitational
SEATTLE – The Utah track & field team had a solid start to the weekend at the Pac-12 Invitational running a handful of new PRs while also improving times in the all-time record book.
Ruby Jane Mathewson and Bailey Kealamakia kicked things off for Utah on the track, posting times of 9.03 and 9.10, respectively, in the 60m hurdle prelims. A little later in the 60m dash, Kelise Davis ran a PR time of 7.73 and moved up into sixth spot in the all-time record books. Freshman Megan Rose also ran a new personal best time in her heat and moved into a tie for 10th in the school record books with Jazmin Dickey (7.89).
Like her teammates, Kelise Davis posted a new personal best time in the 200m dash with a mark of 24.77. Davis' new PR improved her time in the all-time record book but was just short of passing Maya LeBar (24.71). Kealamakia also recorded a new PR in the 200m and just edged her previous time (25.71) with a finish of 25.62. Rose closed out the trio of Utes competing in the 200m with a time of 26.65, just .15 from her PR.
Cara Woolnough took second in the 5000m race behind a new PR time 15:52.25 and improved her mark in the school record books like Davis.
The Women of Utah will close out the indoor season on Saturday in the second day races at Dempsey Indoor Track.
