CINCINNATI - The Xavier track and field team traveled to Findlay, Ohio on Saturday to participate in the Oiler Opener at the University of Findlay where junior John Kolibab and freshman Russell Platt set a school record in the high jump (1.98m/6'6'') and freshman Jada Williams set a school record in the 60m dash (7.91 in preliminaries and 7.97 in finals).

"The freshman class truly had a presence at the meet today and are scratching the surface of the potential they will have this year," said head coach Ryan Orner.

The highlight of the meet though came at the end of the day when the women's 4x4 relay team of senior Susannah Shelly, freshman Tori Chiller, freshman Haley Jerabek and anchored by freshman Brenna McGrath, took the lead for a stretch and finished second overall. Shelley also finished second overall in the mile.

Other members of the team who had strong showings were junior Ryan Konstanzer who finished second in the 300m and sophomore Onya Edwards who finished third in the long jump.

The Xavier track and field team returns to action January 17-18 at the Kentucky Invitational in Lexington, Ky.
