The Glen Allen, Va. native also represented the Eagles in the high jump and placed eighth with a height of 4 feet, 10 and 1/4 inches.

Trice also competed in the sprint events for the Eagles, taking part in the 60 and 200 meter dash events. The freshman finished with a time of 8.84 seconds in the 60 and 29.44 seconds in the 200.
