On February 13, the team was able to extend their dominance at the MEAC Indoor Championship, winning their sixth straight title at the Prince George’s Sports & Learning Complex in Hyattsville, Maryland.
Director of Track & Field Maurice Pierce told HamptonPirates.com that he felt “this championship right here was a combination of a serious group effort, and [senior Ce’aira Brown] was the knockout punch.”
Brown had another spectacular showing, adding to her illustrious Hampton career that includes several First Team All-MEAC selections, and took home Most Outstanding Runner honors.
The Philadelphia native shattered both a school and a MEAC record she owns. The two events were the mile run, where she broke her school record by almost five seconds, and the 800-meter run that saw her beat her MEAC record by nearly three seconds.
In addition to these victories, Brown won the 3,000-meter run in a season-best 10:06.42, and was the anchor on the distance medley relay squad that won first place.
One of her relay teammates, freshman Tiara Robinson, was part of another first place relay race win in the 4×400-meter relay.
