The Lenoir-Rhyne Men’s and Women’s Track and Field Teams continued their outdoor season with an appearance at the Raleigh Relays, hosted by North Carolina State University.

Sharonda Priester, who is competing in her first outdoor season, posted a personal best in the 400-meter hurdles and a seasonal best in the 100-meter hurdles.

In the 400-meter race, Priester finished 13th with a time of 1:02.30, which was the best Division II time in the event. Meanwhile in the 100-meter race, she placed 33rd in the event with her time of 14.73, which was the second-best time amongst Division II participants.

For the men’s 100-meter race, the Bears had two competitors finish in the Top 20 with Sincere Sanders-Moss and Nurain Musa.

Sanders-Moss, the freshman out of Gastonia, N.C., recorded a new season best with a ninth-place finish of 10.47. For Musa, the freshman finished 16th with a time of 10.58.

In addition to his Top 10 finish in the 100-meter race, Sanders-Moss also finished 13th in the 200-meter event with a time of 21.53.

Expanding on the list of LR athletes to record new personal best times were Liam Sutton and Nick Tibolla, who competed in the men’s 400-meter hurdles.
