With less than one week before their conference championship track meet, the Cavaliers enjoy a weekend in Myrtle Beach, SC competing at Coastal Carolina University. Among the Lady Cavalier's top performances was Linsday Mizok who finished third in the 1500m in 5:06.67, achieving a career personal best. Thrower Hope Lowe continues improve her marks in the Women's Discus Event with a best throw of 27.35m (89.73').
The Cavalier Men finished first in the Sprint Medley Relay in a time of 3:38:01, winning by a margin of more than 3 seconds, at the Terrier Relays hosted by Wofford College in Spartanburg, SC. The relay team consisted of Junior Noah Hall (200m), Sophomore Ayobami Oyemade (200m), Freshman De'Andre Young (400m), and Freshman Andy Roof (800m). The Cavs were behind by several seconds after the first 400 meters, but Young placed the team at the middle of the pack with a 48.5 second split in the 400 and Roof took the remaining places with a 2:00 flat 800 meter split. "They were incredible to watch," recalls Jared Nielsen, senior team captain, "De'Andre was flying, I couldn't believe how many guys he took down in that 400." Coach Herbert ecstatic, "my head started hurting, I was yelling so much," he said after the race.
The Cavaliers had a great day at the Benyon Sports Catamount Classic hosted by Western Carolina University. Montreat's growing track and field program has allowed the Cavaliers to participate in more events than ever before in school history.
