NASHVILLE --- The Tigerbelles capped their performance at the Music City Challenge with a strong outing on Saturday at the Vanderbilt Multipurpose Facility.

In the finals, she cut her time to 8.24 to capture third place in the field. Her finals time places her in a tie for 23rd in the nation for the event.

In the long jump, Hughes earned a sixth place finish with a mark of 6.16m (20’2.5”). She also just missed a spot in the finals of the 60m by .003 seconds, taking 10th in the prelims in 7.54.
