Duquesne's women's outdoor track and field team took home second place among 16 teams competing at Saturday's University of Virginia Lou Onesty / Milton G. Abramson Invitational at UVA's Lannigan Field.

The Dukes were led by junior Nicole Wiley (New Castle, Del. / Padua Academy) and sophomore Kristen Micsky (Greenville, PA/Reynolds) who took gold medals in the 100 meter hurdles and the triple jump, respectively, while sophomore Marcie Hepler (Vandergrift, Pa. / Kiski Area) took third place in both the discuss throw and shot put. All told, Duquesne's performance resulted in seven medals.
