Moc Runners Open Season With Top Ten Finishes

Saturday, January 23, 2021

The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga women’s indoor track and field team opened the season at the Samford Invitational with multiple Top 10 finishes at the Birmingham CrossPlex.

“We had a good start to our indoor season with several top 10 results,” Chattanooga head coach Andy Meyer said. “Several of our freshmen did outstanding in their first college meet.”

The Mocs fielded a team of mostly freshmen and juniors with a pair of sophomores at the season-opening event. 

McKenzie Williamson set a PR in the 60 meter Dash with a time of 8.00, placing third in her heat and placed eighth overall in the 200 meter Dash with a time of 26.84, just tenths of a second off her previous best time.

The long jump featured junior Madelyn Thomson who qualified for the finals and posted a distance of 4.83 meters, placing ninth overall.

She led off the Mocs’ 4x400 meter relay team A that finished fourth overall.

“Madelyn had a great day,” Meyer said. “Julianna McReynolds also raced very well. She ran smart in both the Mile and 800, kicking people down. Newcomer Ashtyn Hagood opened everyone’s eyes with a great mile right behind Julianna. Emmy Davis ran a very steady race and was impressive.” 

McReynolds and Hagood finished 1-2 in the Mile heat. McReynolds was seventh overall with a time of 5:17.02 and Hagood was right behind her in eighth at 5:17.73. McReynolds was ninth in the 800 meter with a time of 2:27.51.
 
Emmy Davis was 10th overall for the Mocs and second in her heat in the 800 meter at 2:28.48. Freshman Brooke Rieves was third in her heat with a time of 2:31.89.

After a near two-year layoff after suffering an injury last year, Faith Brown closed very hard to finish ninth in the 3000 meter Run. She covered the distance in a time of 11:12.16, placing ninth overall.

“Our relays team finishing 3-4 was a great ending to the day,” Meyer said.

The Mocs Relay Team B placed third with a time of 4:28.66.

The Chattanooga cross country team will run at the Belmont Invitational Sunday and the indoor team will return to Birmingham February 12 for the Samford Invite #2.
