DURHAM, N.C. – In addition to the 125th Penn Relays, members of the Duke track & field team are set for the Virginia Grand Prix as it closes out the 2019 regular season this weekend in Charlottesville, Va.

Live results throughout the two-day competition can be found here.

Headlining this weekend will be senior Stefani Vukajlovic in the hammer throw competition. Last weekend at the Duke Invite, Vukajlovic rewrote her own school record in hammer throw. On her fifth throw, Vukajlovic placed second with a mark of 213-1 (64.95m). With her mark this morning, Vukajlovic currently ranks 10th in the country. Her previous best toss was 205-10 (62.73m) at the start of the 2019 outdoor season at the High Point VertKlasse Meet.

Additionally, several of last weekend’s top finishers will be in action in Charlottesville. In the men’s javelin competition, Kiegan Lenihan captured first in a mark of 66.09m while Cassie Martin cleared 1.68m in the high jump for a first-place finish. Rivers Ridout is slated for the invitational portion of the high jump and owns a season-best height of 2.12m, which ranks him fifth in the conference.

In the triple jump, Domonique Panton notched second place with a mark of 12.79m, just shy of her school-record performance of 12.85m.

Following the conclusion of action this weekend, the Blue Devils will have a week off from competition before opening the 2019 ACC Championships in Charlottesville, Va., May 9-11.
