Four conference schools are scheduled to send athletes to the ASU David Noble Relays on Saturday (Apr. 10) in San Angelo, Texas. Mississippi College, off since March 27, is at the Southern Miss Invitational on Friday (Apr. 9).

The sophomore owns the three best hammer throws – with the 134-5 being second – in McMurry outdoor history. . . . The women’s and men’s 400m relay teams placed first and second, respectively, at the Tarleton State Relays. The women won with a time of 48.34 seconds, while their male counterparts clocked in at 41.83. . . . Senior Jerrod Cook took home the men’s hammer throw (174-2) title at TSU, bettering the second-place finisher by over 13 feet. . . .

Ryder Peacock was 11th in the high jump at 6-6.75 .

Texas Lutheran’s record-breaking women’s track and field season continued Thursday at the Tarleton State Relays (Apr. 1). The Bulldogs established new school records in the 100-meter hurdles, 400 hurdles, 4x100 relay, 4x400 relay and the pole vault. . . .
