ATHENS, Ohio -- The University of Cincinnati men's and women's teams both finished second, but the combined scores were enough to capture the school's fourth straight Southern Ohio Cup on Saturday (March 31) at Goldsberry Track.   The Bearcats combined for 281.50 points (Men - 142.50, Women - 139) to win the 12th annual tri-meet between UC, Miami and Ohio.


      Monica Hundley and Brittany Klima set school records on the victorious afternoon.  Hundley won the 100 hurdles, crossing the finish line in 14.09, while Klima cleared 12' 6", tying for first. 


      The men captured three event titles, including the 4x400 relay (3:19.54).  Brandon Wright won the 400 hurdles in 56.56, while Ryan Flynn captured the shot put title with a season-best 52' 9-1/4" heave.  Isaac Hendricks won the 110 hurdles in 15.05.




      The women were led by Hundley and Klima, but received winning performances from Betsy Jacobs in the 800 meters (2:18.71), Renee Hein in the high jump (5' 8-3/4"), and Ashley Wilhelm in the long jump (19' 7-1/2").


      The Bearcats have won the last four Southern Ohio Cups and five of the last six.


      UC returns home to host the Oliver Nikoloff Invitational at Gettler Stadium on April 7.
