Streeter Leads Women’s Track to 4th at CACs

NEWPORT NEWS, Va. – Freshman Elizsha Streeter set five school-records (three individual, two relays) and one Capita Athletic Conference record in her first-ever CAC Outdoor Track Championship to lead the Wesley College women's track & field team to a fourth place finish on Sunday afternoon at Christopher Newport University.

Having the busiest day of any competitor in the field, Streeter won the 200m Dash in 25.66, took second in the 400m Dash in 57.56 and third in the 100m Dash (12.53; 12.44 in prelims) for her individual events.  Streeter also led the 4x100m Relay squad of freshmen Kameko Webb, Angel Hall and Kiona Mency to a victory and CAC-record 48.63 and helped the 4x400m Relay of Mency, Hall and junior Stevi Carpenter to a third place finish in 4:05.03.

Mency, Streeter's high school teammate from South Hagerstown High School in Hagerstown, Md., also had an impressive showing with a gold in the 100m Dash (12.45) and bronze in the 200m Dash (26.33).  Hall also scored four points with a fourth place showing in the 100m Dash (12.98) while Webb took fifth in the long jump (16-05.75). 

Carpenter also took in the 400m Dash in a personal-record 59.37, which would have been a school-record had it not been for Streeter's second-place time.

Helping set one of eight Wesley school-records at the Conference Championship was freshman Dieunise Desir in the 3,000m Steeplechase.  Shaving 34 seconds off her old school-mark, the New Castle, Del., native took fourth in 12:31.12.  Classmate and Milton, Del., native, Kadijah Doughty also broke her own school-record in the shot put, taking the silver with a toss of 42-01.25.
