The Cougars concluded a busy weekend as they split up to compete at the Mt. Sac Relays, the LSU Alumni Gold, and the J. Fred Duckett Twilight.
At Mt. Sac, senior thrower Rick Fenton threw a school-record breaking distance of 62.08m (203-8) in the men’s hammer throw. In his home state, Fenton threw the record-breaking mark on his sixth and final throw to place fourth overall.
