In the team’s first outdoor meet, head coach Doug Molnar had great expectations and his team did not disappoint.

“I was real proud of our 4×200 team,” Molnar said. “It was a real nice effort by all of them and a real good start by our sprint crew.”

The 4×200 team brought home a second-place finish, while the 4×800 team finished fourth. The Lady Govs also got a personal best from Alyssa Molnar in the 3000-meter run and by Courtney Jordan in the hammer throw.

“Xiamer Richards started the 4×800 off with a real nice leg,” Molnar said. “Janelle Avery followed with a nice split as well and that was big. Overall, it was a good day. We’ve got things going in the outdoor season and we’re off to a good start. Tomorrow should be a big day as well.”

The Coastal Carolina Invitational continues at 9:00am, Saturday, with the remainder of the events taking place throughout the day.
