THE RUNDOWN
DES MOINES, Iowa -
With 38 points, the Baylor women's track and field team won the 2014 HyVee Cup at the Drake Relays on Saturday at Drake Stadium.

The men's squad also had a successful day earning two event titles and placing fifth in the HyVee Cup standings with 15 points.

The HyVee Cup, which was created in 2013, goes to the team with the best combined finishes in five relay events, the 4x100, 4x400, 4x800, distance medley and sprint medley,  at the meet. On Friday, the BU women had placed second in the 4x8 race to give them an opportunity to go for the crown on Saturday.

The women took advantage of that opportunity.

To open the day the sprint medley relay squad of Kehri Jones, Justise Dayries, Raena Rhone and Olicia Williams produced a time of 3:49.19 to be third.

The DMR crew of Maggie Montoya, Michelle Nwachukwu, Mariah Kelly and Rachel Johnson recorded the second-fastest time in school history in the event with a mark of 11:12.37 to be second.

In the 4x100-meter relay, the squad of Jones, Ashley Fields, Alyssa Nichols and Dayries ran a season-best time of 44.59 to take third.

To close out the night, the 4x400-meter relay team of Nichols, Fields, Williams and Rhone tallied a season-best mark of 3:31.89 to take the Drake Relays event title. That mark would have been sixth-nationally entering the weekend.

On the men's side, Trayvon Bromell picked up another title in the 100-meter dash as he posted a 10.19 to outpace the rest of the field by .11. His time on Saturday was .03 seconds slower than Friday's prelim time, but it was still tied for 10th-fastest in school history. The freshman also won the Texas Relays earlier this year with a NCAA-leading time of 10.01.

In the relays, the men's quartet of Alex Reece, Blake Heriot, Everett Walker and Bromell snagged another event title as they won the 4x100-meter crown in 39.14. That mark is .05 seconds off the group's season best mark, but is still fifth-fastest in school history.

The men's 4x400-meter team of Isaiah Duke, TJ Holmes, Brandon Moore and Heriot did however produce a season-best mark as they turned in a 3:05.20 to be fourth. That time is eighth-nationally.

NOTALBES

  • Tiffani McReynolds was third in the 100-hurdle finals with a time of 13.34.
  • Derwin Graham recorded the second-fastest time in school history in the 3,000-meter event to place fourth with a mark of 8:59.93.

TOP QUOTE #1
"We thought we would have a shot to win the trophy coming in and they did it in a really convincing way. It was really neat to be able to see them enjoy that tittle. The 4x4 group did a great job closing out the night. The girls just stepped up in a big way and ran a great time. It was a really good weekend." - head coach Todd Harbour on winning the HyVee Cup

TOP QUOTE #2
"The men's 4x4 team ran an outstanding time on the end. It was a good weekend where we are taking positive steps forward. We have some guys injured that we would like to have back and we would have liked to have won it, but those guys did a super job. The 4x1 guys did a great job. Trayvon and Everett both ran well in the 100-meter dash." - Harbour on the men's team
