ATHLETES TO WATCH
Sophomore Leshon Collins kicked off the season with a national top mark in the men’s 60-meter dash during the Reveille Invitational (6.70 seconds). Senior Karley King also made a statement in the opening meet as she reached a personal best in the pole vault with a 4.15m (13’-7.25”) mark, breaking the Reveille Invitational meet record. The two earned the first American Athletic Conference accolades of the season, the Male Track Athlete of the Week and the Female Field Athlete of the Week (Dec. 17).

Senior distance runner Drevan Anderson-Kaapa also returns for the Cougars. He also recorded a personal best in the mile run at the Reveille Invitational. Anderson-Kaapa finished with a time of 4:17.97, beating his previous best by a full second.


 

 

The women’s 4x400-meter relay team – Kiersten Brewer, Kelli Hardnett, Ngozi Onwumere and Mayorca Young – ranks third in the nation with a top time of 3:43.27 this season. The quartet finished third at the opening meet with a time of 3:43.27.

Newcomer Cameron Burrell joined the Cougars in the fall and will compete in his second collegiate meet. During the Reveille Invitational, the freshman placed third in the men’s 60-meter dash with a time of 6.75 seconds.
