Kevia Delorme led a Cheyney women’s cross country team to a fifth place finish at the Belmont Classic as she set a new school record. The freshman toured the 6,000 meters in 23:55.07 and ranked as the fourth fastest freshman on the day and the 12th fastest overall. Jasmine Pitts also had a strong showing finishing just outside the top 20.

“Being a freshman and breaking a school record is a really great feeling. It’s so early in the year and being able to break the record at our home course, the Belmont Plateau is truly a great honor. I’ve been running on the Belmont Plateau since I was five years old and broken many records and I’m glad to see that I can continue to do that now that I am in college,” stated Delorme.
