Rams Compete Against Top Competition at Camel City Invitational

WINSTON-SALEM, NC – The Winston-Salem State University women's track & field team took the track against some of the top competition in the sport when the team competed in the 2016 Camel City Invitational at the JDL Fast Track in Winston-Salem, N.C.

Playing against the top competition brought out some strong efforts by the Rams. Winston-Salem State senior sprinter Raven Covington had a great performance in the qualifying round of the women's 60m dash with a 7.62, an NCAA Division II provisional qualifying time. However, she did not compete in the event finals. WSSU junior sprinter Ty-Leah Hampton also had a strong performance in the event when she ran a 7.74 to place 17th. She also had a great performance in the women's 200m dash when she placed 13th with a 25.95 in the event.

Winston-Salem State junior thrower Lyssa Wallace-O'Neal had the best field events performance for the Rams when she placed 10th in the women's shot put with a 39'0.5" (11.90m) toss.

The Rams will return to action next weekend when the team heads to Geneva, Ohio to take part in the NCAA DII Challenge. For more information on Rams track & field, contact the WSSU Office of Athletic Media Relations at (336) 750-2143 or log on to www.WSSURams.com
