Philadelphia, Pa. - Georgetown alumna and current track & field assistant coach Monica Hargrove ran the third leg of the 2006 Penn Relay champion sprint medley relay team on Saturday afternoon at Franklin Field in Philadelphia, Pa.

The USA Blue team, consisting of Rachelle Boone-Smith, Lauryn Williams, Hargrove and Hazel Clark, set a new world record with their first place time of 3:37.16, 0.16 second faster than the previous mark. Hargrove ran her 200m leg in 52.1, as the USA Blue quartet ran past second-place Jamaica, who ran a 3:39.85. The race was part of the U.S. vs. the World series, which will continue throughout the summer.

Two other former Hoya track & field student-athletes also competed in the U.S. vs. the World competition on Saturday at the Penn Relays. Five-time All-American Chris Lukezic led off the USA Blue's distance medley relay team, which was edged at the finish line by the Kenyan `A' team. Kenya `A' set a world record at 9:15.56, while the USA Blue squad was only seven-hundredth of a second behind. Lukezic ran the opening 1200m in 2:51.7.

In the same race as Hargrove, 2004 graduate and seven-time All-American Treniere Clement anchored the USA Red squad, who was third at 3:40.34. Clement ran her 800m leg in 2:02.3.

The U.S. vs. the World races from Saturday can be seen on Sunday at 5 p.m. on NBC.
