The Badgers clocked the fastest 4x400-meter relay time by a UW quartet since 1992 on Saturday afternoon, with the foursome of Jameice DeCoster, Jenna Severson, Brittney Harper and Egle Staisiuniate clocking a time of 3:44.53 in the prelims at the Drake Relays.

The mark was good for 14th-fastest overall in the prelims, but it ranks as the sixth-fastest mark all-time at UW.

That means four of the 10 best marks in Badgers history have come in the past two years -- including three in the last 30 days.

The foursome of Harper, Severson, Staisiunaite and Amanda Donath went 3:45.11 at the Florida State Relays in March. Also, Harper, Donath, DeCoster and Staisiunaite clocked a 3:45.33 at the Florida Relays on April 3.

It was not fast enough to get the Badgers into the finals, however, with Ole Miss' 3:36.57 the top mark in the prelims session.

The Badgers' remaining event on the track is the men's 4x200-meter relay at 6:40 p.m.
