Rams Turn In Great Performances at Mondo HBCU Invitational


WINSTON-SALEM, NC – The Winston-Salem State University Rams women's indoor track & field team returned to the JDL Fast Track for some terrific performances at the Mondo HBCU Indoor Invitational. The steadily improving team stepped up against some of the top teams from Historically Black Colleges & Universities (HBCU), Monday.

"I think the team performed well. We had a number of improving times," WSSU track & field head coach James Daniels said. "We showed signs of improvement and put ourselves in position to show that we can score in several events and to push forward to contend for the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association Championship."

The Rams had several great efforts at the meet. Leading the way was sophomore sprinter Kayla Foy, who won the women's 60m dash with an NCAA Division II Indoor Track & Field provisional qualifying time of 7.61 in the event. The effort marked the second meet in a row with a provisional qualifying time and keeps her among the leaders in the CIAA in the event.

The Rams also had some great performances in the field events. Senior thrower Lyssa Wallace-O'Neal placed fourth in the women's shot put with a 12.83m throw. Sophomore Mikel Franklin added a third place finish in the women's high jump with a 1.62m jump.

The Rams will return to action next weekend when the team heads to Lynchburg, Va. to take part in the Liberty Kick Off. For more information on Rams women's track & field, contact the WSSU Office of Athletic Media Relations at (336) 750-2143 or log on to www.WSSURams.com.
