RALEIGH, N.C. -- The University of Notre Dame track and field team wrapped up the Raleigh Relays on Saturday with various standout performances from its distance runners at North Carolina State’s Paul Derr Track.
On Saturday, the final day of the meet, graduate student Danielle Aragon finished seventh in the women’s 800m race, recording a time of 2:09.84.
Aragon joined a large group of Irish distance runners who made their return to the track after being sidelined due to injury or ineligibility.
