Saturday marked the final indoor meet of the Tiger’s season before postseason action. The meet featured all Missouri teams, mostly from the Division II level.

The meet served primarily as a tune up before Mizzou moves into the postseason next week. The athletes were not asked to do too much and just looked to build confidence heading into the following weeks.

Meet records were set by junior Nylo Clarke and Melissa Mengini. Clarke won the 200m dash in 21.73s, and Mengini PRed in the 800 with a 2:13.11. Redshirt junior Jordan McClendon won her fifth weight throw of the season with a toss of 21.93.

The women’s mile was dominated by Tigers as Shannon Browning placed second with a 5:06.50 PR, Tori Findley was a half-step behind with her 5:06.50, Emma Roth followed her Findley with a 5:17.12, and Lexi Maddox was just behind Roth with a 5:17.12. The girls distance team continues to look more and more impressive.

There were three other first place finishes from Mizzou. Morgan O’Neal won the 200m dash with a 25.54. Dylan Quisenberry took first in the 600m with a 1:25.17 finish, and Oaklee Hauschild won the mile with a 4:24.08 PR.

Indoor season is getting ready to come to a head, but track season as a whole is very long. Mizzou is showing promise heading into the indoor postseason and the outdoor season. The next few weeks at the SEC championship meet and the NCAA championships will say a lot about what shape Mizzou is in heading into outdoor.
