Androniki Defteraiou Finishes Tied for First in Heptathlon

San Angelo, Texas - Trinity's Androniki Defteraiou competed in her first women's heptathlon and tied for first place in the Blue section at the David Noble Relays on Friday.



Defteraiou completed the seven events with a score of 3,967 to tie for the top spot in a field of NCAA Division I and II athletes at Angelo State (TX) University.

She won the long jump competition with a mark of 5.07 meters and placed second in the 100-meter hurdles, crossing the finish line in a personal-best time of 15.48 seconds. That time moves her up to third in school history in that event.

In the final event of the competition, Defteraiou ran the 800 meters in a personal-record time of 2:42.

Defteraiou's third-place finish in the 200 meters at 26.88 seconds was less than a second off her personal-best time. She was also just 0.03 meters off her personal-best in the shot put, reaching a mark of 7.61 meters.

She finished fourth in the javelin throw and high jump events.



The Tigers teams will compete Saturday at the David Noble Relays.
