West Virginia Competes at Pair of Meets


MORGANTOWN, W. Va. – The West Virginia University track and field team is set to split action at two meets on April 28-30. 
WVU will host the Mountaineer Twilight on Saturday, April 30, at the Track and Field Complex at Mylan Park in Morgantown, West Virginia.
Additionally, a handful of Mountaineers will attend the Penn Classic on April 28-30 at Franklin Field in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Live results for both meets are available at WVUSports.com.

The Mountaineer Twilight marks the fourth of five outdoor home meets for the Mountaineers this season. WVU last hosted the Mountaineer Twilight on May 1, 2021 when the team closed out the meet with four first-place finishes.


Then-freshman Abigale Mullings took first in the high jump competition, with a winning height of 1.72 meters. Then-redshirt freshman Sarah Stair and then-freshman Lydia Moell competed in the pole vault competition, sharing a winning height of 3.69 meters to both take first place.


Additionally, Ceili McCabe won the steeplechase competition with a winning time of 9:58.62. McCabe’s time placed second best in outdoor program history, following her program first place finish of 9:57.93.


At the Mountaineers last visit to Penn Relays in 2018, then-redshirt senior Amy Cashin broke her own school record in the women’s 3,000-meter steeplechase, with a personal-best time of 9:59.40. Of note, she became the first Mountaineer to ever break the 10-minute barrier in the event.


The Werribee, Victoria, Australia, native topped her previous WVU-best time of 10:01.19 from 2017. The record-breaking performance also was good for the fourth-best women’s 3,000-meter steeplechase time in Penn Relays history.
