PHILADELPHIA – Junior triple jumper Gabriella Becattini represented the Saint Joseph's women's track and field team on Day Two of the 2014 Penn Relays on Friday afternoon. 

On her first of three jumps of the day, Becattini boasted an outdoor-best mark of 11.73m to take 16th in a field of 31 competitors. 

"Just getting to be here in this atmosphere is amazing," said Becattini, who also competed at the 2013 Penn Relays. "People are so passionate and there are people from everywhere and teams that we've never seen before or will see again throughout the season. All the cheering from the fans is awesome."

Saint Joseph's group of Sara Radzwilka, Jaclyn Kogut, Lauren Hehir, and Lizzy Barrett ran the DMR yesterday and are scheduled to race in the 4x8 on Saturday afternoon at 4:10 p.m.
