Highlights from the track (or, actually, the field)

Hosting the Sun Belt Track and Field Championships hasn't boosted FIU's fortunes in results. Still, there have been some bright spots.

Freshman Marcus Ghent finished third in the long jump with a leap of 24 feet, 1.5 inches.

Senior Charmille Kirton's 150-foot, 3-inch hurl was good for third in the diiscus. Freshman Miriam Pierre threw 141-4 in the discus, good for seventh and finished sixth in the shot put with a 43-11 3/4 put.

Sophomore Tikiera Relaford jumped 5 feet, 7 3/4 inches to finish fifth in the high jump.

Now, go call your mother, your grandmother, your great grandmother, that aunt who was like a mother...

If the Head coach actually returned calls from ELITE Florida runners that want to take their talent to FIU it would actually help. C-USA has demanded FIU to build a track / soccer stadium before Spring 2014.. Lets see what they do now.

Sad to see a program that I have so many great memories come to this level!

Go Panthers!
