    JONESBORO, Ark. (1/18/24) – For the second week in a row, the Arkansas State track and field squads are set to compete in the Music City, traveling to Nashville, Tenn., for the Vanderbilt Invitational.

    Both days of competition will be streamed live on SEC Network Plus.

    TEAMS COMPETING (DIVISION I)
    Alabama A&M, Alcorn State, Arkansas State, Auburn, Austin Peay, Belmont, Eastern Kentucky, Georgia, Georgia State, Georgia Tech, Grambling, Jacksonville State, Kentucky, Lindenwood, Lipscomb, Louisiana Tech, Missouri, Murray State, Ole Miss, St. Louis, Southern Miss, Tennessee, Tennessee State, Tennessee Tech, Incarnate Word, Vanderbilt

    THREE THINGS TO NOTE:

    1.     NATIONAL LEADER: Pole vaulter Bradley Jelmert leads the NCAA in the pole vault after an impressive 2023-24 debut at the Crimson & Gold Invitational on Dec. 9. He owns a school and conference-record mark of 5.72m (18-9.25), which is nearly 8 inches higher than the No. 2 competitor.

    2.     CONFERENCE LEADERS: Including Jelmert’s nation-best mark, the Red Wolves own the top spot in the Sun Belt Conference in nine events. Six men – Camren Bailey (200m), Spencer Taylor (400m), Grayson Young (3000m), Jacob Pyeatt (5000m), Jelmert (Pole Vault) and Willem Coertzen (Shot Put) – own No. 1 rankings in the league entering the weekend. On the women’s side, Sophey Pope (5000m), Carly Pujol (Pole Vault) and Michelle Ogbemudia (Weight Throw) lead their respective events.

    3.     LAST TIME OUT: Five Arkansas State atheltes recorded career-best marks last weekend at the Commodore Challenge. Bella Coscetti cleared an indoor-best 3.82m (12-6.25) in the women’s pole vault, while Olivia Walter ran a career-best 9:57.73 in the women’s 3000 meters. Noah McMurtrey added a personal-best time in the men’s 3000, running 8:38.55. Colby Eddowes cleared a personal-best 4.53m (14-10.25) in the men’s pole vault, while Matthew Dunsworth ran a collegiate-best 15:19.22 in the 5000 meters.
