Feivor's 5K Highlights Marquette's Day One at Meyo

Feb. 3, 2017


NOTRE DAME, Ind. – The Golden Eagles used some impressive performances to kick off day one of the Meyo Invitational at Notre Dame on Friday.

Senior Brittney Feivor secured the second-fastest time in school history in the 5,000 meters, running to a third place finish in 16:36.60. Also cruising to fast times in the 5,000 were fellow senior Clare McDonald, who fell just one second shy of her personal-best with a time of 17:04.40, and junior Jennifer Parker, who ran the ninth-fastest time in MU history in just her first indoor attempt in the 5,000 with a time of 17:11.23.

Also on the women's side, Gemma Tedeschi cleared 3.76 meters (12 feet, 4 inches) with a solid jump in the pole vault, while Terica Harris leapt to a mark of 5.57 meters (18 feet, 3.25 inches) in the long jump.

"We had some real nice performances today on day one," Marquette head coach Bert Rogers said. "Brittney's race in the 5K, to break her PR this early in the season and to take third place overall, that was awesome.

"Dwayne (Dash) had a really nice day jumping, competed well against some guys that had national experience. Across the board, I was really pleased with the first day. Looking forward to some more good performances here tomorrow and at Parkside."

For the men, Dwayne Dash Jr.'s solid day of jumping featured a leap of 7.24 meters (23 feet, 9 inches), which was good for an eighth place finish overall and the second-best indoor jump of his career.



In the final event for Marquette on Friday, Brandon Bell set a season-best in the 200-meter dash with a time of 22.43 seconds.

The Golden Eagles will be back in action on Saturday with several more competing at the Meyo Invite and many more taking part in the Ranger Classic hosted by UW-Parkside.
