      NASHVILLE, Tenn. (1/20/23) – Pauline Meyer, Cheyenne Melvin, Cadence Lapp and Sophie Leathers combined to break the school record in the women’s distance medley relay Friday, highlighting a strong first day of action for the Arkansas State track and field teams at the Vanderbilt Invitational.

      The quartet clocked a time of 11:44.22 to break the previous record of 11:48.59, set in 2020. Rahel Broemmel, Hannah McLaughlin, Kayla Wade and Jaybe Shufelberger finished in fourth with a time of 12:01.79, a time that is ninth in A-State indoor history.

      A-State’s women’s DMR performance would not be the last strong distance performance of the night, as Meyer later clocked a time of 16:57.67 to win the women’s 5000 meters by over 30 seconds. Her time ranks fourth in school history.

      In the men’s 5000, Ethan Mychajlonka likewise posted a top-5 mark, placing 13th with a time of 14:41.24, which is fifth in the event in program history. Lasse Funck then closed out the night in the men’s 1000 meters, crossing in 2:24.25 to finish third overall.

      Camryn Newton-Smith, in her first collegiate event of the season, moved into second in program history in the long jump, leaping 6.16m/20-2.5 in a first-place finish. In the men’s long jump, reigning Sun Belt Conference Men’s Field Athlete of the Week and fellow Aussie Colby Eddowes continued his strong rookie campaign with a mark of 7.53m/24-8.5, placing fifth.

      Bradley Jelmert cleared an indoor-best 5.42m/17-9.25 to place third in the men’s pole vault and moved up to fifth in the Red Wolves’ top 10 in the event. Patryk Baran cleared a career-best 4.92m/16-1.75 to place 10th while Trace South vaulted a season-best 4.77m/15-7.75.

      In the men’s weight throw, Aimar Palma Simo tossed the implement a season-long 19.19m/62-11.5 to place sixth.
