ATLANTA, Ga. - The 4x100m relay team took home a first-place finish to lead CSU in a rain dampened Georgia Tech Invitational that endured a long rain delay on Saturday.

Dionne Gibson finished third overall with the second-best collegiate time of the meet in the 200m dash, running 23.76. Gabrielle Houston just missed the regional-qualifying time of 23.96 with a 24.04-second, 10th-place finish. Misha Morris (24.84), Jessica Thomas (25.12) and Brittney Greer (26.04) also competed in the event for the Lady Bucs.

Thomas, Gibson, Morris and Houston combined to win the 4x100m relay with a regional-qualifying time of 45.28, beating the Charlotte team by 0.13 seconds. The time tied the Big South's overall record and broke the CSU school record.

Gibson's time of 54.88 in the 400m dash was good enough for ninth overall as she finished second in her heat.

Amerikorie Odey ran 1:03.76 in the 400m hurdles, finishing 21st overall as the lone Lady Buc in the event.

In the triple jump, Christi English finished 14th with a distance of 11.64m (38-2.25).

CSU will take next weekend off to rest up for the NCAA East Regional meet at Greensboro, N.C.
