Western Michigan track and field wrapped up the big meet Friday at Grand Valley State with several noticeable performances, including freshmen Sarinity Bracey setting a new personal-best time in the 60-meter hurdles.

Her time in the preliminaries was 8.89 and improved to 8.82 to bring home fifth place in the finals. Senior Rebecca McNamee recorded a personal-best in the mile for the second time this season. McNamee ran a 5:01.42 mile to improve upon her personal best by nearly three seconds and finish ninth in the Big Meet. Sophomore Annalise James ran a 5:13.74 mile and junior Courtney Allen finished the mile at 5:21.21.

The throwing group consisted of Taylor Eaton, Aniya Davis and Madison Ochs, each of whom had a very strong performance in the weight throw. Eaton had a personal-best performance throwing 60’ 6.75. Davis threw over 56 feet for the fourth time this season, reaching 56’ 1.25. Ochs had a personal-best distance of 55’ 5.

Senior Charlotte Ramser also reached a personal-best on the day in the 3,000-meter run. Ramser ran a time of 10:50.71 as WMU’s top finisher in the event.
