    WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. – Competing in her first collegiate pentathlon, freshman Alexis Perry captured the victory in the event on the opening day of the Hilton Garden Invitational, Friday afternoon.

    Perry amassed 3,477 total points over the course of the pentathlon, which is comprised of the 60-meter hurdles, high jump, shot put, long jump and 800-meter run.

    Perry accumulated 1,008 points with her first-place finish in the 60-meter hurdles, crossing the finish line with a time of 8.54. Her 5’ 2.00” leap in the high jump ranked third, and her 29’ 4.00” toss in the shot put earned her 724 and 460 points, respectively.
