The American University women’s track 4x800 meter relay team of seniors Julia Sullivan and Ali Tyburski, sophomore Kelseagh Budris and freshman Corina Velazco has been honored as the AU Student-Athletes of the Week Presented by GEICO, Department of Athletics officials announced Monday.
The team competed at the 120th Penn Relays on Saturday and posted the fourth-fastest time in program history in the event, finishing 14th overall with a mark of 9:12.69. They also eclipsed the ECAC standard by nearly four seconds, marking the first ECAC qualifying time of the outdoor season for the women’s team and the second overall for the Eagles.
