Hoffman Shatters Facility Record, Blue Devils Win Six Events on Day Two

HIGH POINT, N.C. – Graduate student Lauren Hoffman delivered a stellar performance en route to establishing a new facility record in the 400m hurdles, while the Blue Devils produced strong performances across the board and secured first-place finishes in six other events Saturday afternoon on the final day of the Bob Davidson Invitational.

In arguably her strongest individual event, Hoffman commanded the 14-member field as she clocked 56.53 seconds to claim the top spot and shatter the seven-year-old Vert Stadium record set by Joanna Currie. Hoffman finished three seconds faster than the event's runner-up, while registering a new personal best and lowering her school-record time in the process.
