Coastal runners see school records fall at Penn Relays

Members of the Coastal Carolina track and field teams traveled to Philadelphia, Pa., to compete in the 118th Penn Relays alongside some of the best track and field competition in the world.

The Chanticleer relay teams took center stage, capturing a pair of school records on day two of the prominent event.

Relays

The women’s 4x400m relay team finally achieved one of its season-long goals – capturing the Coastal Carolina all-time record.

The Chanticleer quartet of Erica Peake, Santresa Jamison, Qwontajah Thompson and Ruby Durham, who finished 18th overall in the highly-contested event, stopped the clock at 1:40.03. The foursome broke the previous milestone of 3:40.67 – set by Vondeeshia Humphries, Amber White, Jamison and Ikeiylah Brown – by a more than half a second.

The men’s shuttle hurdle relay foursome of Shane Norris, Tre’von Gee, Russel Kanner and Carrington Fernandors also captured a Coastal Carolina all-time mark. The quartet finished the unique event, which features teammates running in opposite directions in adjacent lanes, in an impressive time of 59.50. The team’s time was good for a fourth-place finish.

The men’s 4x200m relay team of Joseph Wilson, Ronnie Jackson, Anthony Lynch and Stevie Brunson impressed with an 18th place finish. The foursome ran impressive splits to finish the race in a season-best time of 1:27.29.

In the 4x100m relay the Chanticleer men placed 43rd in the stout 88-team field. Tyler Askew, Corey Jameson, Joseph Wilson and Nicholas Parks completed the circuit in 42.30.

The men’s 4x400m relay team defeated 30 teams on its way to a 36th-place finish. The quartet of Brunson, Parks, Lynch and DeAndra finished 3:18.82 to mark the Chanticleers’ third fastest time of the year.

The women’s quartet of Ashley Davis, Camille Hurley, Sharmaine Barnes and Emily Marchini finished the 1,600m sprint medley relay in 4:11.63 to place 35th in the 41-team field. A. Davis led off the team running the 400m leg followed by Hurley’s and Barnes’ 200m legs. Marchini brought the baton across the line on her 800m anchor leg.

Jumps

Reggie Nelson represented the Coastal men in the high jump, tying for 11th in the college division. The freshman Dillon, S.C., native cleared a height of 2.00m (6-6.75).

Askew, who won the Big South long jump crown last weekend, placed 13th in the long jump with a leap of 6.83m (22-05.00). Raheen Frederick finished 20th with a final distance of 6.52m (21-04.75).

Throws

Cameron Griggs was the lone Chanticleer thrower competing on the day. The Ruby, S.C., native finished with a distance of 45.57m (149-06) to place 26th in the 33-competitor field.

Senior Big South champions Jason Flanagan (javelin) and Burton Jones II (triple jump) will close out the Chants’ time at The Penn Relays on Saturday.
