Sophomore Alahna Sabbakhan (Washington D.C.) placed second in the 800m with a time of 2:10.82.

Senior Jordan Willis (Williamsburg, Va.) finished second in the men’s 200m. He recorded a time of 21.83.

“Really strong effort for the entire team,” director of track & field and cross country/associate athletics director of administration Vin Lananna said. “The UVA squad has prepared well and we look forward to making progress at each meet.”
