TAMPA, Fla. (UCFKnights.com) - UCF sophomore Anne-Marie Blaney won the South Florida Invitational for the second year in a row and was back to her record-breaking ways Friday at UCF cross country's season-opening meet.
Blaney's lifetime best of 16:50.19 rewrote the 13-year-old school record, shaving 22 seconds off the previous benchmark held by Sonja Shedden.
She wasn't the only Knight to break through with a memorable performance. Of the eight runners to compete for the Black and Gold, six set new personal bests to lift UCF to a runner-up finish to host USF.
Sophomores Amy Ankli (18:01.22) and Heather Classe (18:10.72) both penned their names to the UCF all-time top-10 list by placing 13th and 16th, respectively, at the meet.
Junior Amelia Williams improved her lifetime best by 34 seconds, scoring points for the Knights with her time of 18:46.37. Sophomore Jocelin Adona wasn't much further behind with her new PR at 18:56.73.
Senior Ne'Ausha Logan also clocked in under the 20-minute threshold with her personal best 19:49.72.
UCF next heads to Gainesville to compete at the Mountain Dew Invitational on Sept. 14.
