Jordyn Bryant took second in the shot put with a throw of 45-03.75 (13.81m), the replacing her previous PR for ninth all-time. Onyi Anigbogu also PR’d and finished fourth (43-10.75).


Freshman Ashley Callahan cleared 13-07.75 (4.16m) in the pole to finish second. Her mark was also ninth all-time. Kaitlin Heri came in fifth (13-01.75) and Elizabeth Funk placed eighth (12-02.00).

The Aztec 4x400m relay team had another impressive showing. The team of Jalyn Harris, Aisha Watt, Rhea Hoyte and Nyjari McNeil placed second with a time of 3:41.25, the sixth best time in program history.


Danae Dyer qualified for the 60m hurdles final after winning her heat in the prelims with a time of 8.65. She improved her time to 8.48 in the finals and placed seventh.
