FIU's Women Throw The H

The Conference USA Track & Field Championships don't figure to yield much for FIU. With the Texas-El Paso African pipeline dominating the distance events and other solid programs, an FIU team lacking a head coach all season and facilities all program history doesn't have the raw talent to overcome the deficit handed them by such a setup.

So give it up for FIU's hammer throwing sophomore women, who compiled 18 points in that event Friday. Behind easy winner Kayla Padgett of East Carolina (192 feet, 5 inches), FIU's Miriam Pierre finished second with a throw of 179-7 and Chelsea Goburne was third at 177-10. Raqurra Ishmar's best fling, 176-10, got her a fifth place. 

FIU also got points, six of them, from freshman Caroline Reiser for her third place in the 10,000 in 36:12.64.

On the men's side, Chris Sullivan finished the decathlon in sixth with 6,277 points.
