LYNCHBURG, Va.—Virginia senior Micah Brickhill won the 800 meters as the Cavalier women’s track and field team finished action at the Darius Dixon Memorial Invitational Saturday (Jan. 28) at the Liberty Indoor Track Complex in Lynchburg, Va.
In the 800 meters, Brickhill (Buckingham, Va.) finished first by almost two seconds in a Dixon Memorial Invitational-record time of 2:14.03.
Senior Chimere Ezumah (Gardena, Calif.) was third in the 500 meters in 1:15.52. Sophomore Carly Feyerabend (Mechanicsville, Va.) tied for third in the high jump, clearing a season-best mark of 1.65m (5’ 5”).
Senior Tori McKenzie (Chatham, Va.) finished fifth in the 200 meters in 25.06. She also had a season-best time in the 60 meters in 7.57. Fellow senior Heather Smith (Chesapeake, Va.) placed seventh in the 400 meters in 58.42.
In the 60m hurdle prelims, sophomore Ciara Leonard (Elkins Park, Pa.) set a personal best in 8.58, which ranks in a tie for fourth on UVA’s all-time list.
“We need to learn to execute in competition what we do correctly in practice,” UVA director of track and field/cross country Bryan Fetzer said. “We cannot be on one week and off the next. Consistency need to take place if we are going to reach our desired outcome.
Next up, the Cavaliers travel to Boston for a pair of meets. UVA will compete at the Crimson Elite Meet hosted by Harvard on Feb. 3 and the Scarlett & White Meet hosted by Boston University on Feb. 4.
“I am excited to make the trip to Boston with the entire women’s team next weekend,” Fetzer said. “It will be the first time that all of our event groups will compete together.”
