ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - The UCF track and field team completed the Pepsi Florida Relays on Saturday by breaking school records in the 4x400 and sprint medley relays at James G. Pressly Stadium at Percy Beard Track.

The sprint medley team of seniors Afia Charles, Erica Winston, sophomores J'Nea Bellamy and Briana Vaughn finished second with a mark of 3:46.12 and eclipsed the school record, which was set last year at the Pepsi Florida Relays.

Senior Jen Clayton, juniors Devinn Cartwright, Sandy Jean and Charles posted a time of 3:35.99 in the 4x400 relay to shatter the school record. The previous mark (3:36.37) was hit twice last year at the C-USA Championships and NCAA East Prelims.

A second place finish was notched by senior Kalen Hambrick in the hammer throw with toss of 52.68/176-01. Coming up with a 50.90m/167-00 throw in the same event was classmate Destinee Romain, who also set a personal record in the shot put at 14.19/46-06.75.

Finishing just outside the top three in the distance medley was the team of junior Amelia Williams, sophomores Caroline Pauls, Anne-Marie Blaney and freshman Ashley Jocelyn with a time of 11:41.84.

UCF finished the Florida Relays with three school records after Blaney won the 5000 meters on Friday with a mark of 16:35.57.

The Knights travel to Walnut, Calif., on April 17 to open the Mount Sac Relays. UCF is also in action on April 19 at the Brian Clay Invitational in Azusa, Calif., and the Tom Jones Invitational in Gainesville.
