Season best times for St. Lucia’s Nyanka Joseph In NJ

1e4793c6-624c-4cde-8d92-e39f241f54b6With the conference championship coming up in less than one month, the University of Connecticut women’s track and field enjoyed a successful tune-up at the two-day Larry Ellis Invitational, hosted by Princeton (New Jersey), on 22-23 April.

Senior standout Nyanka Joseph, a graduate student from Mon Repos, Saint Lucia, earned a top-10 finish in the 400m dash, taking eighth overall (55.38), then continued a stellar meet with a second-place 24.31 second finish in the 200m dash, checking in just ahead of teammate Paris Taft (24.36), who took third.

The Huskies’ 4x400m relay team (with Joseph on the lead-off leg) wrapped up the meet in style, winning the event with a 3:45.38 time.

Both of Nyanka’s individual times were well short of her personal-best marks (52.81 and a National Record 23.33) but both were season-best times for the 22-year-old (23 in June).mm
