Hawkeyes Pentathletes Compete at Illinois

CHAMPAIGN, Illinois— The University of Iowa track and field team record two career bests and one all-time mark in the pentathlon Saturday at the B1G Multi-Meet.

Senior Dallyssa Huggins led the way for the Hawkeyes finishing fourth with a score of 3,690. Huggins recorded a new career best in the long jump with a leap of 4.98m (16’4.25”). Huggins won the high jump with a mark of 1.70m (5’7”) and the 800 meters with a time of 2:20.39.


Sophomore Tionna Tobias finished seventh with a score of 3,470 and recorded a new career best in the 800 meters with a time of 2:26.88. Tobias crushed her previous career best in the pentathlon and now sits ninth all-time in program history.

Freshman Gabbi Bullard recorded a new career best in each event and overall with a score of 2896.



“I thought for our first multi-meet we had some decent performances. The atmosphere was a lot different than being a part of a normal meet, so I credit the girls for trying to bring their own energy. I thought they competed well, and although the scores weren’t what we were hoping for, I know we will make big improvements over the next four weeks as we prepare for the Big Ten Championships.”



The Hawkeyes head to Nebraska to compete at the Frank Sevigne Husker Invitational on February 5th and 6th.
