Program Records Continue to Fall for Women’s Track & Field

Fredericksburg, Va. — The Catholic University of America saw another women's track & field record fall on its second-consecutive day of competition as senior Kiera Lyons did it again, this time setting the top school mark in the 5,000 at University of Mary Washington's Battleground Relays.

Lyons broke a school record that had stood since 1986 as she won the event by over five minutes with a time of 18:14.49.

Sophomore thrower Gabby Tomasura earned a silver as she boomed a toss of 30.65 meters in the javelin.

Freshman Natalie Troy made it a 1-2-3 for the Cardinals as she earned a bronze in the 400 hurdles with a time of 1:16.34. Sophomore Emily Schubert was just off her pace at 1:20.48, good for fifth overall.

Rookie Madeline Baker kept the strong performances going for Catholic as she placed eighth in the 100-meter dash, crossing the finish line in 14.38 seconds.

In the 1,500, it was Mary Funk who also added an eighth-place finish as she sped to a time of 5:41.54.

Next up for Catholic is next Saturday's Division I Towson Tiger Invitational.
