Mocs Track Competes At Samford Open

Saturday, January 20, 2018
University of Tennessee at Chattanooga junior Brianna Nelson topped her personal record in the 800 meter run and was one of four Mocs to earn Top 10 finishes Saturday at the Samford Open at the Birmingham CrossPlex.

“Very good start to the year,” Chattanooga head coach Andy Meyer said. “It’s not common to have kids set PRs or be within 1-2 second of their personal best this early in the season.”

Nelson won her heat in the Mile Run, finishing eighth overall with a PR time of 5:16.
37. Freshman Sophia Neglia placed 14th overall with a time of 5:24.64 and junior Haley Morris finished right behind her with a time of 5:24.74.

Sophomore Emily Poole placed fourth in the 3000 meter run with a time of 10:23.26, less than a second behind third. Sophomore Hannah Caldwell placed ninth overall with a time of 10:33.29, topping her PR by nearly 18 seconds in the distance race.

Sophomore Abby Bateman finished fifth for the Mocs in the 800 meter run with a time of 2:19.42, just shy of her PR.

The Mocs had several compete in field events at this meet. Taylor Grayson was in both the weight throw and the shot put. Rebekah Hampton and Rebekah Bryant each participated in the long jump.

“Taylor Grayson, while not placing, had a good shot put throw,” Meyer said. “We are excited with everyone’s current level of fitness. It bodes well for May!”

Chattanooga’s next meet will be February 2 at the ETSU Buccaneer Invitational in Johnson City. Follow the action online at GoMocs.com

Jeff Styles, I Believe You - And Response (5)

I am glad that Jeff Styles presented the details of the event on his website.  Just because the government alleges a crime does not mean guilty. A criminal charge is an allegation by government. Sure, that allegation can be very serious, but the charge is still an unproven allegation until a court of law and Lady Justice has her review of the proof.  A person gets ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: The Political Dark Side

If ever there becomes a movie that reveals the rotten side of politics, the script has just been written. My goodness, it has all of the hot words: liberals, Muslims, bedroom beds, spouse abuse, non-transparency (or is it collusion,) kids in shock, a seated member of Congress, vulgar language, the Democratic National Committee, a woman scorned, and – best of all – an election. ...
