Clarion track and field put together strong performance in weekend meet at Kent State

[vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_column_text]The Clarion women’s track and field team had a strong showing at the Kent State Tune-Up this past weekend.
The team finished with two PSAC qualifiers and a school record at the end of the day.
“I think we had a pretty good meet overall,” said Coach D.J. Bevevino.  “There were a number of season best performances, which is what you hope for and expect near the end of a season.”
Freshman Tatiana Cloud and senior Ciara Shorts both qualified for the PSAC Championship.  Cloud qualified in the 400-meter dash, while Shorts qualified in the 5,000-meter run and the mile run.
Freshman pole-vaulter Jessica Hamrick also broke her own school record, vaulting 10 feet, 2 3/4 inches.
She finished second at the Kent State meet.
“I feel as though I am in no position to say what our team needs to improve on. I feel like our team is doing all the right things to be the best that we can be,” said Cloud.
“At this point all we can focus on is being healthy, staying relaxed and believing in our training and abilities to be able to perform well in the PSAC Championships,” said Bevevino.
He added that not a whole lot can be accomplished in a couple of days.
This weekend the track team heads to Bucknell for the PSAC Championships.
“We are focused on performing well individually and striving to place as high as possible in each event we are entered.  Some of our athletes have realistic opportunities to place in the top 8 and earn some team points,” said Bevevino.
He added that the goal is for everyone to have their best performance of the season in the championship meet.
“The will determine the success of the meet as well as our indoor season,” he said.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_facebook type=”standard”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/2″][vc_tweetmeme type=”horizontal”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
