            STANFORD, Calif. -- The University of Tennessee women's track & field team flexed its muscles on the opening day of the 2009 outdoor campaign, snaring three NCAA regional qualifying performances at the Stanford Invitational late Friday night.

Senior Sarah Bowman, fresh off an impressive showing at the recent NCAA Indoor Championships, looked very sharp in her outside season debut at Stanford's Cobb Track at Angell Field. The 2009 NCAA Indoor mile champ won section 2 of the 5000 meters in a career-best 16 minutes, 20.78 seconds, easily meeting the NCAA regional qualifying standard of 16:52.00 and punching her ticket to the Mideast Regional meet in Louisville, Ky., on May 29-30. Classmate Rolanda Bell also carded a personal best, covering the distance in 17:02.34 to place 20th.

In section 1, the fastest of the three 5K races this evening, junior Jackie Areson joined Bowman in making the regional meet. She did so with a career-best clocking of 16:27.16 that left her in 18th place. Senior Katie Van Horn came up short in her bid for a regional mark, taking 20th in 17:03.02.

Tennessee got its first regional qualifying mark of the 2009 season in its initial race of the meet. Junior Phoebe Wright, the runner-up in the 800 meters at the NCAA Indoor Championships, produced a career-best time of 4:24.28 to finish third in section 2 of the 1500 meters and earn a trip to Louisville. Freshman Chanelle Price wasn't far off accomplishing that feat herself, taking eighth in 4:30.86.

On Saturday, the Lady Vols are scheduled to have four competitors in action at 4:54 p.m. Eastern Time in the 800 meters at Stanford. In Atlanta, the Lady Vols face a full slate of events after rain put a damper on the women's hammer throw on Friday night. The second day of the Yellow Jacket Invitational begins at 10:30 a.m.
