Huntingdon women's track and field closes out inaugural season

TROY, Ala.  – The Huntingdon women's track and field team closed out its first season of competition this weekend in the Coach "O" Invitational at Troy University.

Among the Lady Hawks' performances, Kyndall Caldwell turned in a time of 26.26 seconds in the 200 meters to finish 16th in a field of 19. Sheaney Marshall ran a time of 1:03.72 to finish 10th out of 11 in the 400 meters.

In the 1,500 meters, Dana Phillips was 13th of 17 with a time of 5:23.54 and Rachael Phillips was 17th with a time of 5:51.95.

Caitlin McMahon's time of 23:29.34 in the 5,000 meters was good for eighth in a field of eight. The 4x100 meter relay team (Miah Burton, Caldwell, Tristiana Mays and Marshall) finished sixth out of seven with a time of 51.29 seconds.

Burton was 13th of 17 in the long jump with a distance of 4.74 meters. In the discus, Kim Allen's throw of 31.78 meters was good for 19th of 23 and Sara Beasley's throw of 27.02 meters was 20th.
