Junior edges her previously established record of 13.63 with a time of 13.53

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (April 4, 2014) – Junior Dede Edgecombe (Spartanburg, S.C.) led the Buccaneers’ track & field charge on Friday with an ETSU record 13.53 time in the women’s 100 meter hurdles on day one of the 2014 Pepsi Florida Relays at James G.

Also breaking into the top-five for the participating Buccaneers on Friday was Katerina Vodova (Humpolec, Czech Republic) leaping to a fourth-place finish in the women’s long jump with a wind-aided mark of 6.02 meters.
