Gamecock Women Lead Team Race After Day One of Dr. Sander invitational

The Gamecock women scored 42 points to take a lead in the team race

NEW YORK—The South Carolina track and field teams swept the 60 meters’ titles and the Carolina women claimed the lead in the team race on Day One of the Dr. Sander Invitational at The Armory on Friday.
“We’ve got a good lead on the girl’s side, but we’re running out of bullets,” said head coach Curtis Frye. “Tierra (Frasier) had a great win and dropped her PR all the way to 7.35. The girls in the 5K got us a lot of points. KD (Young) and Destinee (Rocker) got us big points too. We’ve got to put up points tomorrow in the 400 meters, the weight throw and the 4X400-meter relay because we’ve got BYU and Penn State coming after us.”
Tierra Frasier dropped her personal-best time in the 60 meters in the prelims and followed that up with another personal best. She ran a time of 7.35 in the 60-meter final to win the event and capture 10 points for the Gamecocks.
In the men’s 60 meters, Anthony Greenhow, Jr. also set a new personal best while winning the event. He ran a time of 6.76 to win the event for crucial team points and a new personal-best. Dominic Dutton also raced in the men’s 60-meter final and took fifth place with a time of 6.91.
On the women’s side, the Gamecocks captured 42 team points to take the team lead after the first day of competition. Carolina currently holds a nine-point lead over Penn State.
Destinee Rocker finished as the runner-up in the women’s 60-meter hurdles with a time of 8.24. She earned eight of Carolina’s team points on the women’s side.
The Gamecocks also captured an abundance of points in the women’s 5,000 meters. Carolina went 3-4-5-6 in the event to secure 18 points as a team. Claudia Satzke, Katerina Hendrix, Kira Jenkins and Lily Weeks finished in spots three, four, five and six, respectively.
KD Young took third in the women’s shot put with a toss of 15.35m/50-4.50. Her third-place finish added six points to help the Gamecocks lead after the first day.
On the men’s side, Christian Lewis secured the only other event victory for the Gamecock men. He won the long jump with a mark of 7.45m/24-5.50. Jaden Price-Whitehead also captured team points in the long jump, finishing fourth with a jump of 7.23m/23-8.75.
Carson Lenser competed in the pole vault invitational and captured a top-five finish. He cleared 5.15m/16-10.75 to place fifth in an event that saw a new NCAA lead and featured two of the NCAA’s top three pole vaulters this season.
The men’s distance medley relay squad ran the No. 4 time in school history. They finished seventh with a time of 9:57.97. The quartet of Sean Petersen, Jordan Sessom, Hayden Cobbe and Rogerio Amaral is the fifth in school history to run a sub-10 minute time in the event.
After one day of competition, the Gamecock men have accumulated 35 team points.
Carolina track and field returns to action at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday with the conclusion of the Dr. Sander Invitational. The meet will air from Noon until 2 p.m. on NBC’s streaming service, Peacock. Live results can be found here.
