"[Tara] Davis broke the collegiate, Texas Relays, Myers Stadium and school record in the women's long jump with a monstrous effort of 7.14m/23-5.25 (+1.0). Her effort broke Jackie Joyner-Kersee's 36-year-old collegiate record (6.99m/22-11.25 – 1985) and made Davis the first collegiate woman to jump 23-feet legally. Davis' record-breaking mark ranks No. 5 by an American and was the best since Tianna Bartoletta's 7.17-meter effort that helped her win Olympic gold in 2016.


"In addition, Friday's performance gave Davis a sweep of the collegiate long jump records after breaking the indoor mark earlier this month. Davis set the indoor collegiate record (6.93m/22-9) en route to winning an NCAA title two weeks ago in Fayetteville, Ark."

San Antonio Reagan's freshman Mackenzie Dagrosa leads Texas in the high jump at 5-10.

Kennedale's Brianna Brand takes over Texas long jump lead at 19-10.50

UNT: North Texas track and field continued its record-breaking indoor season as Haley Walker threw for the top weight throw mark in the UNT record books, and Aneesa Scott set a new Mean Green time in the 400-meter dash Friday at the Red Raider Invitational inside the Sports Performance Center. 
     Walker grabbed fourth place at 18.14 meters while surpassing her own mark of 17.76 set last season, and Scott added another school record to her resume in 2020 with a 53.86 showing for third place to upset the 54.49 recorded by Ciara Smith in 2011. 

TCU: Sophomore Tysen Townsend broke fellow teammate Kendahl Shue's pole vault record by clearing 12-11 3/4. Townsend finished 8th overall in the women's pole vault. 

UTTyler: Summer Grubbs broke a pair of her own individual school records with improved performances, edging ahead of her previous best in the long jump with a mark of 5.56 meters (18-feet, 3-inches) and shattering her previous best in the 60-meter hurdles. Grubbs ran a 9.22 in the qualifying heat of the sprint hurdles, shattering her previous mark of 9.45 by 23-hundredths of a second, and her time of 9.25 in the semifinals was also two-tenths ahead of her previous career-best. She combined with Natasha CarcanoShelby John, and Theresa Simmons to establish the program-record in the distance medley relay with a time of 13:26.98.

UTSA: (Maia) Campbell turned in the top women's shot put mark in UTSA history with a measurement of 15.06m (49-5), which surpassed the previous school standard of 15.01m (49-3) established by N'Dia Warren-Jacques in 2017.

Texas Tech: Ruth Usoro led the way in creating excitement, breaking the school record in her first time triple jumping as a Red Raider. She landed a jump of 44'-2.5" (13.47m) in her second attempt, then tacked on three-quarters of an inch in her final attempt with a final mark of 44'-3.25" (13.49m) to secure the school record.

     Gabe Oladipo, who last week came just three inches from Kole Weldon's 2015 record, smashed it this time around by over two feet. The Texas A&M transfer's toss landed at 69'-10.75" (21.30m), plenty far to best Weldon's 67'-6.25" (20.58m). 

UT: Junior sprinter Micaiah Harris produced the men's record-breaking highlight of the day out in Albuquerque, running the 200-meter dash in a school-record and NCAA-leading 20.53. 

     It was senior distance runner Kathryn Gillespie who produced the Longhorns' record-breaking mark on the women's side, shattering the school's indoor mile record by more than five seconds (4:34.64) in Boston. Gillespie's school record is also the best mark by a collegian in the event this season.

     Sophomore sprinter Julien Alfred, competing in the 60-meter dash Saturday, posted the third record-breaking mark. She ran away from the field in the preliminary round, posting a 7.13 to claim the top qualifying spot. Alfred then topped her performance in the final, finishing in a school-record 7.10, which is the NCAA-leading mark and No. 2 in the world this season.

     Up in Boston, freshman distance runner Crayton Carrozza left his first mark in the Texas record book, as he completed the men's mile in 3:59.82 to become the fifth-fastest Longhorn in the event. He is only the sixth runner in program history to finish the mile in under four minutes.
