The Navy women's outdoor track & field team concluded the first day of competition Thursday at the Penn Relays at Franklin Field in Philadelphia, Pa.
On the women's side, the quartet of Tineisha Davis (Madisonville, Ky.), Amy Stokes (Fort Washington, Md.), Kacee Jossis (Boise, Idaho) and Lisa Procaccini (Vienna, Va.) buried the previous Naval Academy record in the distance medley relay, as it finished fifth in the event with a time of 11:48.47. The previous Academy record of 12:05.83 was set in 2001 and Procaccini was also a member of that team.
In the other running events, the Mids garnered times of 49.40 in the 4x100m and 4:01.67 in the Heptagonal section of the 4x400.
Amanda Hasenauer (Sebastian, Fla.) set the pace for Navy in the field events, as she tied for fourth with Princeton's Chelo Canino in the Championship section of the pole vault with a mark of 12'5-1/2". Outdoor captain Shannon Crites (Powell, Ohio) matched Liberty's Kena Butts for eighth place in the Eastern high jump, recording a mark of 5'4-1/2".
