LOS ANGELES, Calif. – The University of Utah women’s track and field team finished up the first day of the USC Trojan Invitational with solid performances in the hammer throw and three-kilometer events.
“We had a solid day,” Utah head coach Kyle Kepler said. “We need to continue to compete hard and improve against very good competition.”
Sophomore Aoife Hickey got the day off to a good start in the hammer throw setting a personal record in the event. On her fourth attempt, Hickey recorded a 188-06 feet edging out fellow Ute Anneli Stahl for third place. Stahl finished fourth overall with less than an inch difference, but officially was listed as 188-06 feet. Cynthia Sanchez earned 12th with a 158-10 feet, respectively for the Utes.
The second day of action begins Saturday at 9 a.m. PT at Loker Stadium.
