Halle Hazzard (Commack, N.Y.) set a freshman record in the 60m dash with a time of 7.54. Additionally, sophomore Jordan Scott (Portmore, Jamaica) finished second at the meet in the triple jump, first among collegiate athletes in the event, with a jump of 15.75m (51’8.25″). His performance ranked him seventh in the NCAA and earned him ACC Field Performer of the Week honors.
Virginia holds three Liberty Indoor Track Complex facility records with redshirt junior Jack Lint (Westerville, Ohio) posting the heptathlon record with a score of 5,385. Former track and field athletes Henry Wynne and Christine Bohan hold the record in the men’s 3000m run and women’s shot put, respectively.
