Sea Ray Live Results

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- The fifth-ranked University of Tennessee women's track & field team hasn't had much of a presence during the first two days of the 2009 Sea Ray Relays, but that is about to change.

A full day of running and field event action kicks off at 12:15 p.m. on Friday with the men's open discus. The initial women's event will be the open 3000 meters at 12:35 p.m. Junior Jackie Areson, the 2009 SEC runner-up in that event, is slated to compete for Tennessee and get the ball rolling for the Big Orange.

Other highlight events for the Big Orange on Friday include local product Ellen Wortham (Maryville H.S.) in the high jump at 1 p.m., Alicia Essex in the pole vault at 1 p.m., Celriece Law in the 100m hurdles at 2 p.m., Lynne Layne in the 100m and 200m dashes at 2:45 p.m. and 5:10 p.m., respectively, Sarah Bowman and Chanelle Price in the 800m at 6 p.m, and Rolanda Bell in the 1500m at 6:30 p.m.

The women's heptathlon wrapped up on Thursday, and day one leader Ashley Trimble of the University of Kentucky finished what she started. After scoring 3,273 points on Wednesday, the 2009 SEC Indoor pentathlon champion accumulated 2,165 points on day two to finish with an NCAA provisional qualifying score of 5,438. Trimble won the javelin with a throw of 105-10 to score 519 points and claimed the 800m in 2:15.81 to tally 881 more in the final event. She began day two with a runner-up effort in the long jump at 18-9 1/4 (w: 3.7) to rustle up 765 points.



Unattached competitor Kirby Blackley finished second with 5,091, followed by UAB's Nora Mehl with 4,715. In the invitational hammer throw, Connecticut's Victoria Flowers took top honors with a fling of 195-4. Jeneva McCall of Southern Illinois won the open hammer with a toss of 173-5. UT entrants Holly Kane, Laquoya Kelly and Christine Coppola were unable to record measurable marks.
