SEATTLE (UNLVRebels.com) - The UNLV track & field program's Avi'Tal Perteete and Elisa Rovere finished second (2:09.01) and eighth (2:11.79), respectively, amongst collegiate competition in the women's 800m Saturday at the UW Invitational, which was held at the Dempsey Indoor.
The Rebels' Jartierra Grissom jumped 5-1 (1.55m) in the high jump to finish in a four-way tie for 19th, while Yamilet Biggers posted a personal-best time of 57.98 in the 400m. Spencer Moore ran the mile in 5:12.22.
QUOTABLE: "I was really impressed by how Avi won her section and managed her race today," said assistant coach Jebreh Harris. "Avi and Yamilet had personal bests in their races, which is exciting. Elisa also ran very competitive in her 800m season-opener, which is one second off her indoor personal best. We did well overall and we look forward to keeping the momentum going in a positive direction."
