Claremont, Calif. - At the Pomona-Pitzer Invitational on Saturday the UNLV women's track and field team was able to put forth strong times and distances.

Several of the Rebels were able to compete in events that they normally do not get to participate in. Shahnel Woodley ran well for the Rebels as she ran the 100 meters in 12.02 for a second place finish. Woodley also ran the 200 meters for the first time this season and placed seventh with a time of 24.71.

Chauncey David-Jacobs beat her personal best, 24.84, for this season in the 200 meters with a time 24.58 placing fifth in the competition. David-Jacobs ran the 400 meters as well for the first time and finished an impressive fourth place with a time of 56.09. This is the top time in the 400 meters event for UNLV this outdoor season.

"This was a fun meet for the team because some of them got to compete in off events and some are just coming back from time away on the track but we got some good performances," said head coach Yvonne Scott-Williams.

On the field Claire Schreiner and Stephanie Schafer both jumped 1.55m in the high jump. Talyah Polee was also able to participate in the high jump event placing 16th with a height of 1.45m.

Olivia Raya threw her second longest distance of the season in the hammer throw with a distance of 48.26m. Amanda Bingson threw a distance of 47.75m, which is her farthest this season.

Next up for the Rebels will be the Rafer Johnson Invitational in Los Angeles, Calif. on April 10-11.
