      NASHVILLE, Tenn. (1/21/23) – Multiple Arkansas State track and field athletes either entered or moved up the program’s indoor top 10 on Saturday at the Vanderbilt Invitational.

      Ten different athletes registered collegiate-best performances on the final day of the meet that also saw A-State athletes total eight podium finishes across two days, including four first-place results.

      Colby Eddowes recorded another strong performance, this time in the 60-meter hurdles, winning with a time of 8.01 that ties him for sixth in school history, matching Solomon Williams (2010). He qualified for the final by running a collegiate-best 8.08 in the prelims.

      Jonae Cook eclipsed her previous collegiate-best 60-meters time twice en route to a third-place finish. She clocked a top qualifying time of 7.50 in the prelims before running a time of 7.48 in the final. On the men’s side, freshman Myles Thomas also placed third and moved into a tie for third all-time with a mark of 6.77 in the final after registering a then-personal-best time of 6.80 in the prelims. He tied Justin Whitfield (2014) for third in A-State indoor history.

      In the women’s 3000 meters, Sophie Leathers crossed in 9:46.21 to place seventh, but moved up to third in school history in the event, while Elizabeth Martin finished in 9:53.16 – a time that is sixth in program history. Rylan Brown clocked a time of 8:25.29 in the men’s 3000 meters, ranking sixth in school history in the event.

      Hannes Fahl finished the men’s mile in 4:10.04, a time that is fourth best in the A-State indoor record books.

      In the women’s shot put, Selase Sampram tossed an indoor-best 14.04m (46-0.75) to move into 10th in A-State indoor history. Camryn Newton-Smith also registered an indoor best, throwing 12.36m (40-6.75). Jacob Tracy earned a top-5 result in the men’s shot put, tossing 16.41m (53-10.25).
