BLACKSBURG, Va. – The Duke track & field program kicked off the first day of the Hokie Invitational Friday evening in Blacksburg, Va., with one school record and multiple performances that rank on Duke’s all-time list. The Blue Devils recorded 19 top-10 finishes as a team on Virginia Tech’s campus.

In just the second meet of the season, senior India Lowe continued to leave her mark in the Duke record books. Last weekend at the Carolina Cup, Lowe posted the second-fastest time in school history in the 60m and this evening captured the school record in the 300m in a first-place time of 38.21.

Also competing in the 300m was sophomore Miles Mingo who clocked in at 34.40 to take fourth place and the second-best time in school history. Mingo was just .11 seconds from a school-record performance.

Lowe and Mingo weren’t the only Blue Devils to etch their names among Duke greats as Brittany Aveni clocked in the second-best time in the 600m. Her first-place finish of 1:29.90 wrapped up a great birthday performance for the junior.

The Duke distance squad was also very successful in Blacksburg, led by sophomore Michaela Reinhart and junior Matt Wisner. Reinhart took the top spot in the 3,000m in a time of 9:38.79 while Wisner clocked a personal-best 2:26.23 to take second in the 1,000m. Senior Kim Hallowes posted an ACC qualifying time in the mile with a fifth-place finish in 4:48.23.

Senior Domonique Panton highlighted Duke’s field events during the first day of action as she notched fourth place in the triple jump with a mark of 41-3.75 (12.59), good for her second-best mark indoors.

Duke will close out the Hokie Invitational Saturday beginning at 11 a.m., with field events.
