April 22, 2010
DES MOINES, Iowa - Lydia Chamberlin, Carolin Imhof and Brianna Steel all broke the school record in women's heptathlon to highlight the first day of action for the Tulsa track and field teams on Thursday at the Drake Relays in Des Moines, Iowa.
The trio all topped the previous school record of 4,503 points set by Steel during the 2008 season.
Chamberlin set the new top mark with 4,980 points to finish fifth overall and third amongst collegiate competitors. Imhof came in seventh with 4,647 points, which places her second on the all-time records list, and Steel placed ninth with 4,546 points to move into third place all-time.
Chamberlin, a junior transfer from Sixhills, United Kingdom, has now set a total of five school records in her first season with the Hurricane. She set three during the indoor season (high jump, long jump and pentathlon) and two so far during the outdoor campaign (high jump and heptathlon).
Carl Stones finished eighth in the 3,000m steeplechase with a personal-best time of 9:07.53, which is also the second-fastest time in school history.
Ashley Scott finished eighth in the 5,000m Invitational Run with a time of 17:09.67 to round out the first day of action for the Hurricane.
Tulsa is back in action tomorrow through Saturday at the Drake Relays in Des Moines, Iowa.
