A runner-up performance by the women's 3,200-meter relay team and a third-place finish by Nick Owens in the hammer highlighted the final day of competition for the University of North Carolina track and field teams at the historic Penn Relays Saturday in Philadelphia.
The 4x800 team of Georgia Kloss, Megan Kaltenbach, Danielle Rodgers and Erin Donohue - the same four student-athletes who took second in the DMR - finished in 8:32.40, just .38 seconds behind Stanford. Owens had a top mark of 201-7, good for third place on a nasty weather day at the University of Pennsylvania.
Three other Tar Heel individuals competed on Saturday. Rory Magner was seventh in the javelin with a throw of 191-7, while Britt Taylor was 13th in the triple jump with a leap of 48-4 1/4. Noah Cosby, who won the open pole vault Friday, was fourth in the "championship" section, clearing 16-4 3/4.
UNC will take the next week off for final exams before traveling to the George Tech Invitational May 13-14 in Atlanta.
