CONWAY, S.C. – On the final day of the Shamrock Invitational, the South Carolina track and field team won the women’s competition with 184 points. In the men’s standings, the Gamecocks scored 100 points, just finishing second to Army (108.75). After setting the women’s 4×200-meter relay meet record yesterday, the women also broke the 4×100-meter and 4×400-meter relay meet standards to earn the Mayor’s Cup. The men also took home the Mayor’s Cup. Overall, the Gamecocks set four meet records and won eight events on Saturday.

The South Carolina women showed off their depth starting with the 4×1, team of redshirt sophomore Ahtyana Johnson, senior Vashti Bandy, junior Tamera Harris and sophomore Tyler Brockington ran a 44.65 for a win and new meet record. Later in the final event of the day, the quartet of freshmen Marisa Bellamy, Briana Haith and Precious Holmes along with Bandy ran at meet record pace, crossing at 3:36.11. South Carolina had set the previous meet standards in both events.

Redshirt sophomore Chalese Davis set a new meet record in the 100-meter hurdles, sprinting for a time of 13.75. Brockington finished second with her second PR of the weekend in the event and her first sub-14 second time at 13.98.

Holmes and Haith finished 1-2 in the women’s seeded 400-meter dash. Holmes ran away from the field, posting a 52.89 to set yet another meet record for the Gamecocks. Haith set a new lifetime best at 54.66. Marisa Bellamy took fourth at 55.14.

Freshman Jussi Kanervo had a stellar day in the hurdles. Kanervo qualified for the 110-meter hurdles yesterday with a time of 14.29. Today, he lowered the time to 13.98 and took the win. Later in the afternoon, he returned to the track and ran the 10th-fastest 400-meter hurdle time in school history, clocking in at 51.52 for a second place finish. Sophomore Jermaine Collier took third in the high hurdles with a time of 14.14.

In the women’s 3,000-meter run, freshman Mary Reiser and redshirt sophomore Kayla Lampe finished 1-2. Reiser’s time of 9:57.45 is good enough to break her into the South Carolina all-time top 10 at eighth. Lampe’s time (9:58.00) is just outside of the list.

In her first collegiate outdoor competition, freshman Natasha Dicks recorded a win and posted the sixth-best leap in school history with her mark of 41′ 3 ¾” (12.59m).
