Underclassmen lead the way in Knoxville

Vanderbilt two-sport star Simone Charley.
The Vanderbilt underclassmen have been shining all season -- and they were at it again Friday.

Freshman Simone Charley shattered the school record in the triple jump, as she and sophomore Skyler Carpenter each earned Top-5 finishes to highlight Vanderbilt's performance on the opening day of the Sea Ray Relays in Knoxville, Tenn.

Charley captured third place in the triple jump at 41.10.75, which easily surpassed Vanderbilt's previous best set in 1996 by Christina Penn (40.06.75).

Carpenter set a new personal record and took third place in the 400-meter hurdles with a time of 59.91, which was the fifth-best showing on Vanderbilt's all-time performer's list.

Freshman Sarah Bell finished just outside the Top-5, taking sixth in the pole vault by clearing 3.80m.

Freshman Sarah Goodale was 11th in the high jump at 1.65m and Erin Edmond was 12th in the 400-meter dash with a time of 56.48.

Edmond posted a time of 25.06 in the 200 for 27th, and Goodale finished at 15.22 in the 100 hurdles.

Representing Vanderbilt in the men's 5000-meter run were John Ewing (14:57.39; ninth place), Jake Van Geffen (15:17.86; 18th), Nick French (15:18.68; 20th) and Andrew Fix (15:39.73; 29th).
