Rampf victorious in 5000m at Seminole Twilight

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Saint Leo junior Colett Rampf posted a personal best with a first place finish in the women's 5000m while junior Anthony Deleva matched the feat in the men's 1500m, to highlight track results for the Lions at Friday's Florida State University Seminole Twilight meet.

Rampf posted a time of 16:35.04 in the women's 5000m, edging Florida State's Carmela Cardama Baez by almost five seconds for the win. She also surpassed her previous personal best of 16:49.30, set three weeks ago at the Mt. San Antonio College Relays in California.

Rampf's 5000m time is a provisional qualifying time in that event for the NCAA Division II Outdoor Track & Field Championship.

Deleva recorded a time of 4:00.46 in the 1500m, and finished fourth overall. He was a slightly faster than his previously posted P.R. of 4:01.00, set two weeks ago at the University of South Florida Invitational.

Freshman Maria Fernandez clocked a time of 5:16.97 in the women's 1500m race, and was 15th overall.

The Seminole Twilight was the final meet of the regular season for the Saint Leo men's and women's track team. Rampf has already automatically qualified in the 3000m steeplechase for the NCAA championship meet, which will take place May 25-27 at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. She will learn whether her 5000m time will also earn her a spot in the NCAA field for that event as well when the announcement of NCAA qualifiers is made on Tuesday, May 16.
