ASHLAND, Ohio –The Gator women's track and field team faced competition from all three NCAA classifications at theValachovic AC Ashland University Open.


In their final tune-up before the 2017 North Coast Athletic Conference Outdoor Track & Field Championships, the Gators saw seven athletes achieve new personal records at Ashland.


Freshman Tori Valachovic, a South Fayette graduate, had the spring contingent's top effort of the day, as she established a new career mark in the 400 meter hurdles with a time of 1:06.92 to take sixth overall in a field of 17, and second among D-III competitors.

It is now the third-fastest performance in the event this season by an NCAC athlete.
