MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.  – Mary Grace Lemon finished 11th in the hammer throw, pacing the VMI women’s track and field team on day one of the 2012 Big South Outdoor Track and Field Championships, contested Thursday in Myrtle Beach, S.C.

Lemon, who will defend her discus championship on Saturday, threw the hammer 46.35 meters (152’1”) to place 11th, just three inches out of a top-10 placing. Teammate Alex Hastings placed 24th, but with a personal best of 35.38 meters (116’1”). Meanwhile, in the javelin throw, it was Rachel Sing finishing second in her flight and 10th overall with a toss of 33.01 meters (108’4”).

“All of our athletes competed well today,” said VMI head coach Darrin Webb. “Tomorrow is moving day, the day to set up for Championship Saturday. We need to qualify well tomorrow, and take advantage of the areas that we can score in. I am pleased with where we are, but this meet has a long way to go.”

Overall, the Keydets have yet to dent the team scoring column at this year’s Championships. Coastal Carolina leads Liberty 54-37 at the top of the standings, with Gardner-Webb’s 14 points ranking third. UNC Asheville (13), Radford (11) and Winthrop are fourth through sixth, with Campbell (8), Charleston Southern (5) and High Point (4) rounding out the standings.

The 2012 Big South Outdoor Track and Field Championships will resume Friday at 1 p.m. in Myrtle Beach.
