WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University women's track & field team took fourth place tonight in the distance medley relay at the NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships at the Jacksons Track Center in Nampa, Idaho.

All-American Rachel Schneider led off for the Blue & Gray in the 1,200-meter leg with Amanda Kimbers (Baltimore, Md./McDonogh) taking over the 400 meters. All-American Chelsea Cox (Manahawkin, N.J./Southern Regional) took over the third leg with All-American Emily Infeld (University Heights, Ohio/Beaumont) anchoring the foursome.

Schneider stayed in the top five of a tight race for the entirety of her leg. As the pace sped up Schneider moved in the top three and the Hoyas were in fourth through the first exchange. Kimbers took the Hoyas up to third over her two laps and Cox took over in third place at the second handoff.

Florida's runner went out too strong over the 800 meters and though she held the lead for most of her leg, the field closed on the Gators and the Hoyas were in the top four through the final exchange.

The final leg showcased a slow pace for the first 800 meters of the 1,600-meter anchor leg. Infeld stayed in the front of what became a very tight pack. With 400 meters to go, Infeld started making her move toward the front. After taking over the lead, Infeld held on but the back straightaway on bell lap was all the opportunity Washington's Katie Flood needed to hit her stride.

The Hoyas finished fourth with a time of 11:06.53.

The action continues at the 2012 NCAA Indoor Track & Field Championships tomorrow when Infeld competes in the 3,000-meter run. The event is slated for 10:10 p.m., ET with a live stream available on ESPN3.
