GAINESVILLE, Fla. – The University of Miami track and field program rounded out their 2013 appearance at the Florida Relays with a solid showing on Saturday.

Miami’s women placed third in the 1600m sprint medley. The quartet of Alyssa McClure, Jokira Jiles, Taneisha Cordell and Alaine Tate finished the medley in 3:50.17. A second Miami medley relay group placed seventh with a time of 3:58.01.

Greg Kaczka, Joseph Ryan, Tequille Jackson and Bassim El-Sabawi competed for Miami in the men’s 1600m sprint medley, finishing in 3:30.43.

The women’s 4x400m relay team placed 20th out of 49 as Shannon Wright, Cordell, Tate and Jiles combined to post a time of 3:42.03.

Lea Johnson was Miami’s top individual competitor on Saturday. The sophomore placed fourth in the women’s hammer throw with a toss that traveled 172’ 6”. Johnson’s throw was just short of her personal-best 173’ 3”, set at the Miami Invitational two weeks ago.
