POTW 3Track and Field

Georgia State track and field finished fifth as a team at the Sun Belt Indoor Track and Field Championships in Birmingham, Alabama. Junior sprinter Ravin Gilbert earned an individual Sun Belt title in the 60 meter dash, timing in at 7.48 meters — the third-fastest 60 meter time in school history.

Gilbert grew up in Florida and attended Wesley Chapel High School in Wesley Chapel, Florida. She led Wesley Chapel to a conference championship in 2010 and also made the school’s Honor Roll.

In her freshman year at Georgia State, she recorded several personal best performances, including a 41.86 second time in the 300 meters.

Last year as a sophomore, she had the fifth-fastest 200-meter race in Panthers history for indoors with a 24.55 in conference championship qualifying. Gilbert timed in at 11.59 in the 100 meters to finish fourth in the Sun Belt championship for the outdoor circuit and qualify for the NCAA East Preliminaries.
