Tech women’s track and field team begins season

Tennessee Tech’s women’s track and field team kicked off their season on Saturday at Vanderbilt’s Indoor Opener.

Though Tech did not have anyone win their respective meet, Tech did produce a few impressive finishes. 

Cierra Tate ran the 300m in 39.13 seconds and came in second in a field of 64 runners, finishing just two tenths of a second behind first place Sabrina Richman of Austin Peay. 

Janet Kwambai, who made herself known during cross-country season, ran the 3,000m in 10:19.13 which landed her second place in her first-ever indoor track meet. 

In addition, senior Raven Smith had a strong showing during the long jump and triple jump, collecting two top-10 finishes. 

Although they didn’t win this event, there is a lot of good to take from it as the lady Golden Eagles look to defend their title this season.
