Women’s Track And Field Breaks Three Program Records At Penn Relays


PHILADELPHIA – Competing alongside the nation’s best for three days in the world’s oldest and largest relay meet, the University at Albany women’s track and field team made an impression at the 119th edition of the Penn Relay Carnival.

On the first day of competition, junior Brittney Lane shattered the program’s 5K record, running a 16:21.12. The blistering mark bested Alyssa Lotmore’s record of 16:48.68, set in 2006. In addition, Lane placed third in the Championship race with the run and qualified for the NCAA Regional Championship.

With an attendance of 48,871 at historic Franklin Field Saturday, the women’s 4 x 800m relay team set a new school record, running an 8:48.83 in the Championship of America Race. Sherez Mohamed (2:11.78), Kathryn Fanning (2:10.08), Brianne Bellon (2:12.82), and Mackenzie Carter (2:14.16) finished 12th among the most elite teams in the country. 

The women’s 4 x 200m relay team with Jillian Haynes, Aiyanna James, Kahlia Taylor, and Alli Rogers also set a school record of 1:38.88 and were the first alternate team for the ECAC final.

In addition, the 4 x 400m team, consisting of Rogers, Aderinsola Ajala, Tynelle Taylor-Chase and Mohamed, placed fifth in the ECAC Championship final on Saturday with a time of 3:45.63.

Running UAlbany’s fastest time at Penn, the 4x100m relay team of Ashlee Maduro, Haynes, Rogers, and Taylor placed sixth in the ECAC Championship Final with a season-best 46.78 mark. 

The three-day attendance at Penn Relays totaled 111,284.

UAlbany also competed in the Capital District Classic, hosted by RPI, this weekend. The Great Danes had five athletes win event titles, as Miranda McConnell won the 1500m run with a time of 4:50.77, and Kendra Adams placed first in the 400m hurdles (1:07.67).

In the field, Katie Dowd won the javelin throw (35.46), Ashley Mahlmeister won the triple jump (11.60), and Michelle McCrae earned the long jump title (5.17).

Up next, UAlbany looks to capture its seventh America East women’s outdoor championship, May 4th and 5th. The championship meet is hosted by Binghamton University.
