Matthews, Williams Both Break School Records on Final Day

Final Results

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA. — On the final day of the ACC Outdoor Championship, both Bria Matthews and Jeanine Williams broke school records at Lannigan Field on Saturday afternoon.

Matthews broke her own school record in the women’s triple jump, finishing with a mark of 13.77m to secure her first-place finish. She is now an ACC Champion in the triple jump in both the indoor and outdoor seasons.

Williams joined Matthews to break a school record, topping the previous time in the women’s 100m hurdles event. She finished with a blazing time of 12.72 and earned a second place finish.

On the men’s side, Avery Bartlett earned All-ACC honors after turning in a third-place finish in the men’s 800-meter event, running a time of 1:50.68.

Daniel Pietsch and Ben Jean earned second-team All-ACC honors, after both finishing in the top six in the men’s 400-meter event. Pietsch turned in a fourth-place finish running a time of 47.12, while Jean finished in sixth with a time of 47.33.

“We had some great performances and I’m proud of how our women competed today. Bria seemed to be struggling a bit, then late in the competition when she needed a big jump, she did what champions do. She puts everything together, wins the event jumping a personal best, and breaks her own school record. Maddy [Hammond] was tremendous, jumping her collegiate best in a pressure situation to tie for fourth,” noted women’s track and field head coach Alan Drosky.

“The 4 x 400m relay team came together, ran in the front the whole way to win their section and place eighth overall. Lastly, I can’t say enough about senior, Jeanine Williams. She has been the heart and soul of our team for the last two years. She had been in a little slump through most of the outdoor season but has been phenomenal the last few weeks. Today she was the best she’s ever been.”

The Jackets finished the ACC Outdoor Championship in 10th in men’s earning a total of 38 points, while the women finished in 13th with a total of 27 points. The Jackets will next compete at the NCAA East Preliminary Round in Jacksonville, Florida, from May 23 – 25.
