CSUN Posts Second-Fastest Time in School History, Finishes 10th at NCAA Championships

EUGENE, Ore. - The CSUN women's track & field team made the most of its first trip to the NCAA Track & Field Championships in three years as the Matadors finished 10th after running the second-fastest time in school history in the 4x100 meter relay.

The quartet of Le'Shel Vines, Hafsatu Kamara, Lexis Lambert and Marie Veale clocked a season-best of 44.38 to finish fourth in the second of three heats which left the Matadors 10th out of the 24 best relay teams in the country. Only the top two teams from each heat plus the next two best times advanced to the final.

The time ranks second in school history only to the CSUN team of Bolden, Lynch, Brown and Griffith who ran 44.10 in 1980.

"That was a great run," said CSUN head coach Avery Anderson. "They put together their fastest race of the year at the right time. 10th in the country is an awesome accomplishment. We came here to run and the team certainly left it out there today. I'm really proud of them."
