Blair Daniel, a Delaware State freshman from Paul VI, recorded a big 400-meter dash PR this week.
Daniel ran 57.78 to place second to freshman teammate Kyra Lyles at the Sting Invitational on Delaware State’s home track in Dover. Delaware State freshmen actually swept the top three spots in the race, with Lyles winning in 56.67 Khaliyah White third in 57.89. All three PR’d.
For Daniel, her previous PR was a 58.38 at the 2019 Camden County Championships at Haddon Township.
Daniel’s previous collegiate best was a 59.56 last month in a meet at High Point, N.C.
Daniel didn’t run on the Lady Hornets’ 4-by-4 in that meet, but she did run a leg on the 400-meter relay team and she did run a 400 leg on Delaware State’s 3:56.74 relay at the Towson Invitational earlier this month.
Delaware State does not have an all-time top-10 on its women’s track and field web site.
Daniel ranks No. 9 in the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference in the 400 and is the No. 2 freshman, behind Lyles.
