For the first time since 2015, Women's Track and Field captured the team championship at the 29-team Brian Jaeger Classic at Showalter Field and they did it in dominating fashion. DP earned gold medals in four sprint events and saw 11 athletes earn podium finishes across six events, including three relays. Freshman Rayanna Mathis continues to make her name very well known in the circuit as she took home the gold medal in three events and a silver in a fourth. In the 100m, Mathis (12.47) edged out teammate Shakaeja Dore (12.61) by just .14 seconds for gold and silver honors while Ebone Fortilien picked up a sixth place finish in 12.75. Mathis and Dore mirrored that same finish in the 200m with Mathis claiming gold in a career-best 25.83 and Dore cutting at 26.01 for the silver. Both Mathis and Dore would team up with Jarvia Carr and Ebone Fortilien in the 4 x 100m relay for a gold medal and season-best time of 48.82. That finish edges them even closer to the 2016 school record time of 48.00, which included Ebone Fortilien as a freshman. In the Freshman / Sophomore 4 x 100m relay, no surprise that the Panthers picked up another gold medal with Irmiris Mendez, Jayla Jones, Zanea Formey and Raina Scott crossing in 51.00. DP's 4 x 400m relay team of Lourdes Safford, Jarvia Carr, Zoe Alexander and Rayanna Mathis earned the silver medal in 4:06.40. Gabrielle Matthews was your bronze medal winner in the 300m hurdles in a season-best 48.52 while Imani Wiley also ran a season-best time of 49.69 to claim sixth. Three Panthers finished in the top seven in the 100m hurdles with Armelle Oliantus taking fourth (season-best 16.25), Gabrielle Matthews fifth (16.52) and Irmiris Mendez seventh in a season-best 17.04. DP collected points over in pole vault as well, with Natalia Blake clearing a height of 7' 11.5 " to earn fifth and Adneiry Mercedes Diaz placing sixth at 7' 5.75". Rounding out the top eight finishers for DP were Gabrielle Matthews in the long jump (sixth, 15' 1.25") Domanique Douglas with sixth place finishes in the triple jump (33' 3.75") and 400m (season-best 1:01.64), Jasmine Little in the 800m (eighth, season-best 2:27.43) and Domanique Douglas in the long jump (eighth, 14' 11.5"). DP collected a total of 103.5 points, outdistancing both Windermere and Lake Mary by over 37 points for their third consecutive meet title. Up next is the Royal at TFA Saturday as well as the Bob Hayes Invitational in Jacksonville.
