Dec. 8, 2015
Official BIG EAST Release
At Marquette’s season opener at the Blue & Gold Invitational hosted by Notre Dame last Friday, Felix won the triple jump in her first-ever event. The Sheboygan, Wisconsin native set a personal best with a leap of 11.73 meters (38 feet, 5.5 inches), which was the fifth-best mark all-time at Marquette.
She competed in two events on the track as well, racing to sixth place and setting a freshman record in the 60-meter hurdles with a time of 9.07 seconds, and running the second leg on the 4x400-meter relay team that took second place in a time of 3:54.84.
The Golden Eagles will return to the track Saturday, Jan. 23, when they travel across town to take part in the UW-Milwaukee Panther Quad.
