Compiled from information submitted by ASC sports information directors.

American Southwest Conference track and field teams complete the transition from indoor to outdoor seasons with this weekend’s competitions. Several ASC teams will travel to the McMurry Indian Relays Friday (Mar. 19) in Abilene while the Texas Lutheran women compete at Saturday’s Texas Southern Relays (Mar. 20).

McMurry made the most of its trip to last weekend’s NCAA Division III Indoor Track and Field Championships at Wisconsin-Whitewater (Mar. 12-13). The women’s team finished in a 10th-place (16 points) and the men’s squad was tied at 24th (8 pts.). Three student-athletes returned to campus with All-America citations--Darcell Edwards (long jump, triple jump), Cody Brotherton (shot put) and Ryder Peacock (high jump). . . . Peacock recorded a 6-6 height for seventh-place in the high jump and his second straight All-America finish. . . . Senior Jerrod Cook missed All-America in the weight throw by one place. Cook finished ninth with a throw of 57-3/4. . . . Sophomore Courtney Chaney broke the McMurry women’s outdoor record in the hammer throw at South Plains Invitational (Mar. 6), throwing 132-6.

The Texas Lutheran women's team eclipsed the school’s 24-year-old 4x400 meter relay record at the Trinity University Invitational (Mar. 6), finishing fourth in a 4:07.06 time. Samara Williams, Kourtney West, Robin Boeker and Natalie Wood combined for the record-setting effort. The old TLU record of 4:09.17 was set in 1980. . . . Williams, Wood, West and Danielle Bell ran a TLU-record 50.26 to set the school 4x100 relay record at the Cap Shelton Bluebonnet Relays hosted by Howard Payne (Feb. 27). . . . Senior Jessica Roderique broke her own pole vault record with a meet-winning vault of 9-6 at the Cap Shelton. She bettered her own 7-0 mark.
