JACKSONVILLE, Fla./TOLEDO, Ohio (EMUEagles.com) – The Eastern Michigan University women's track and field team took part in a pair of competitions this past weekend. First, the Eagles were apart of the rain shortened North Florida Invitational Friday-Saturday, March 30-31, as well as competing in the Toledo Collegiate Challenge Saturday, in which they took ninth-of-12 teams in Toledo.
In Jacksonville, Shantavia Williams paced EMU individual finishers Saturday by placing second in the 400-meter dash in 53.96, while Tatijana Jacobson placed sixth in the high jump with a five-feet and 5.75-inch leap. Friday afternoon the Eagles had multiple top-five finishers, including Rosie White in the long jump with a leap of 18-feet and 6.0-inches, good for fifth. Angela Scarber took third in the hammer throw with a 179-feet and one-inch toss, while ReJeana Margina qualified for the finals of the 100-meter dash with an 11.87 finish but was unable to race in the finale because the remainder of the invitational was canceled due to inclement weather.
In the relays, the Eagles were tops in the 4x100-meter, as Danielle Clark, Williams, White and Margina completed the distance in 45.97.
At the Toledo Collegiate Challenge Cassie Coffman was a spark for EMU as she took fifth in the 1,500-meter run in 4:48.88, while Ashley Wartley took ninth in the 100-meter hurdles with a 15.17 finish. Rachel Quaintance and Tiffany Kincaid finished 5-6 in the 3,000-meter.
The Eagles will take their second stab at outdoor competition when they travel to East Lansing, Mich. Friday-Saturday, April 6-7, for the Spartan Invitational.
