Vanderbilt multis and distance will compete at the Bryan Clay Invitational

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — A small group of Commodore track and field student-athletes will head west to Azusa, California, for the Bryan Clay Invitational. Dores will be competing in the heptathlon, 1,500 and 5,000 meters.

This is the first time that the multi-event squad will compete in a full heptathlon this outdoor season. Madison Murray ended her 2023 season with a scoring performance at the SEC Championships and the eighth best score in program history, 5,239. She added more than 600 points to her pentathlon personal best this indoor season and placed eighth in the event at the conference championship with a score of 3,640 points.

Alix Still and Marta Sivina are new to the Vanderbilt program this year, transferring from Virginia and North Texas, respectively. Still is a three-time All-American in the multi and was the ACC runner-up in the pentathlon as a senior in 2023. Sivina was the Conference USA pentathlon champion during her freshman year with the Mean Green.

This season at the Joe Walker Invitational, Still registered the seventh best mark in program history in the long jump, 5.89 meters, to place first among collegians and second overall.

Several Distance Dores will be making the trip to Azusa. Earlier this season at Raleigh Relays, Julia Rosenberg broke the school record in the 5,000 meters with a time of 16:04.24. At the same meet, Caroline Eck added the third best 10,000-meter time, 33:55.33, to the program’s top 10 performers list. At Florida Relays, Ella Lambert and Cameron Fawcett placed fourth and seventh, respectively, in the 1,500 meters. Lambert’s time of 4:29.49 is a personal best.

Events will start with the heptathlon 100-meter hurdles Thursday at 12:30 CT. The meet is broadcast by FLOTRACK, and live results are available online.
