LANDOVER, Md.-- Three more school records fell as the UMBC men's and women's indoor track and field team competed at the Maryland Indoor Invitational Saturday in Landover, Md.
Freshman Imani Colbert (Upper Marlboro, Md./C.H. Flowers) continued her impressive first year as a Retriever, winning the 60-meter hurdles in 8.72, besting last week's school record by 0.09 of a second. In just three meets this season, Colbert has shaved 0.18 off of senior Tierra Gregory's (Williamsburg, Va./Jamestown) record that was set in 2007.
Not to be outdone, junior Britney Foreman (Pasadena, Md./Chesapeake) broke UMBC's 60-meter dash record for the third straight meet, finishing second in a time of 7.66.
On the men's side, sophomore transfer Victor Gilreath (Catonsville, Md./Western Tech/Maryland) placed second in the triple jump with a mark of 14.90m, breaking the previous school record of 14.86m held by Huguens Jean in 2003.
The other two champions on Saturday were both freshmen, Katie Miller (Salisbury, Md./James M. Bennett) and Aaron Brooks (Upper Marlboro, Md./Dematha). Miller won the women's pole vault with a mark of 2.95m, while Brooks took the men's weight throw, hitting a mark of 13.50m.
The Retrievers return to action Jan. 31 in Fairfax, Va. for the George Mason Invitational.
