I spent a warm, sunny afternoon sitting track side at the William Morris Stadium at Duke watching the Battle of the Blues. I was sat next to Sydnei Murphy’s parents who must have been very proud when Sydnei set a new school record for Duke in the long jump.
Duke Track and Field were up against UNC and Michigan State. I especially enjoyed watching the women’s track events and was very happy when the women’s 400M took first place with a new school record of 52:91 – Go Duke!
Duke women took first place overall with 75 points, Michigan 2nd with 62 points and UNC with 59 points. Duke men came in second place with 54 points, UNC with 45 points and Michigan men came in first with a mighty 101 points.
A fun afternoon.
