In the 400m hurdles, junior Heather Smith (Chesapeake, Va.) won her heat and finished 10th overall in 59.87, while graduate student Aisha Naibe-Wey (London, England) placed 14th in 1:00.37.

Senior Peyton Chaney (Belleville, Ill.) placed 18th in the 100 meters with a time of 11.52 (wind-aided).

Chaney was also a part of the 4x400m relay that finished 14th in 3:43.44. The UVA lineup was Naibe-Wey, Chaney, who split 54.5, Smith and junior Andrea Wright (Chesapeake, Va.).

"One of our main goals for the trip was to prepare us for the championship part of our season in May," UVA director of track and field/cross country Bryan Fetzer said. "We learned a lot from today, from the positive and the negative."
