PHILADELPHIA – The Salisbury University track & field teams sent a small contingent of student-athletes to the historic Penn Relays over the past three days resulting in several Sea Gulls tallying some of their better times of the year.
On Thursday, the women's 4x400-meter relay team of Chanel Beaudoin, Lauren Snyder, Kelsey Larger, and Christine Randall finished the race in 4:06.91, the fastest time Salisbury has run the event this season by more than seven seconds.
Junior Luke Campbell was the only Division III competitor in the men's 110-meter hurdles field, made up of primarily Division I student-athletes, placing 16th, with a time of 14.23 seconds. Campbell placed ahead of runners from Division I schools like Auburn University, Georgia Tech and the University of South Carolina. The time is Campbell's second-best of the season.
Campbell joined up with Devon Hopkins, Eric Halton, and Zach Schmelz to place 35th in the men's 4x400-meter relay as the top Division III finisher in the field, finishing in 3:19.87. The Sea Gull team placed third in their heat, topping teams from Liberty University and the University of Maryland Baltimore County and marking their second-best time of the year as a unit.
Senior Tyler Austin completed the 100-meter dash in 10.98 seconds, breaking the 11-second mark for the third time in 2015.
Senior Dylan Burkett completed the men's shot put with a top distance of 49' 11", marking his second-best effort of the season.
The Sea Gulls now look forward to the Capital Athletic Conference championships on Saturday, May 2 and Sunday, May 3 at York College of Pennsylvania.
