Women's T&F Finish A-10 Championships In 6th Place


CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Competition continued at the Irwin Belk Track & Field Center for Day 2 of the  Atlantic 10 Conference Outdoor Track and Field Championships, where Temple's women's team placed sixth out of the 14 competing schools with 68 points. The Owls were led by second place finishes from their 4x100 meter relay squad and sophomore Margo Britton in the shot put. Charlotte, who was the meet host, took the 2013 conference title with 114.5 points.

Looking to defend her A-10 title in the shot put, Britton heaved a shot that went 14.02 meters, but was outdone by Hannah Kuenzel from Saint Louis, who threw 14.06 meters.

Isatta Kenneh, Ambrosia Iwugo, Demeshia Davis and Shanae Bailey nabbed eight points for Temple with their combined time of 46.36 in the 4x100 meter relay. VCU beat out the Owls in the event with a time of 45.78.

Kenneh was a big contributor for her team, as she collected 13 points on her own. In the 100 meter dash, the sprinter placed third with a time of 12.00, before going on to take fourth place in the 200 meter dash (24.71).

Temple's 4x400 meter relay team also put together a solid collective effort, taking fifth place with their time of 3:49.82.

Senior Jade Wilson ran the 100 meter hurdles in 14.17 for third place and six point before taking fifth in the 400 meter hurdles in a time of 1:01.24.  Tessa West finished just behind her in sixth (1:01.51).

In the distance events, junior Anna Pavone came away with a seventh place time in the 1500 meter run, as she finished in 4:37.52. Pavone just missed scoring points in the 5000 meter run with her 10th place time of 17:40.26.

Freshman Jamila Janneh turned in a strong effort in the triple jump, taking ninth place with a mark of 11.46 meters.

From here, Tempe will now set its sights on the ECAC Championships being held next weekend at Princeton.
