The Iowa women’s track and field team began a weekend of competition at the Drake Relays in Des Moines on Thursday. Head coach Layne Anderson’s squad fielded competitors in the 800 meters, the 4x1,600 meter relay, and the 5,000 meters.

During the afternoon session of the distance carnival, junior Adrianne Alexia took second place in the 800 with a time of 2:08.61 that narrowly bested Loyola (Illinois) freshman Rebecca Sterns’ time by .07 seconds. Freshman Kaitlyn Nelson finished fifth in the event with a time of 2:09.96.

In the 4x1,600 meter relay, the team of graduate students Lauren Scott and Mareike Schrulle, senior Brooke Gambrall, and freshman Lisa Gordon clocked a time of 19:41.15. The quartet’s time was good for fourth place in the 16-lap relay to cap the afternoon session for the Hawkeyes.

The Drake Relays are scheduled to resume at 8 a.m. today and continue throughout the weekend.
