Former McGann-Mercy standout sprinter Sasa Vann began her collegiate career Saturday racing for Buffalo State at the Golden Flash Gala.

Vann raced in the 300-meter dash and placed 15th in 42.19 seconds. The race featured 40 runners. Vann’s teammate, Jazmin Dunham, finished seventh in a school-record time of 40.95.

The meet was held at Kent State University.

Vann was an all-state runner for Mercy last year in her senior season. She finished her track career at Mercy with two individual school records for the indoor season (300, long jump) and four during the outdoor season (100, 200, 400, long jump).
