The Missouri Tigers Track and Field team had a phenomenal showing in Oxford Mississippi at the Ole Miss Classic. The team had 19 top-five finishes, including 13 of those in the field events.

Sophomore Allie Webb and Samantha Farmer both tallied top 10 marks for the program as well. Webb set her javelin personal record, which now ranks eighth all time in program history. Webb’s performance of 44.11m was good enough to put her in third place in the javelin toss which was good enough to best her previous record of 43.62m. She was just short of the seventh all time mark, which was set by Sandra Hampton 44.18m. Farmer set her personal best time in the 3000m steeplechase, which now ranks tenth in program history. Farmer took six seconds off of her personal record, and set a time of 11:05.26 which was good enough to put her third place. That was good enough to take over Carolyn Rauen’s 2006 time of 11:05.46 and put her into the top 10 in Mizzou history.

Mizzou was also to win three events on the day. Jerrad Mason took home first in the 400m dash, and both Maya Cody and junior Karissa Roman won the high jump. Gabi Jacobs had a season best in the shot put with a finish of 15.26m. Freshman Chris Conrad also took second in the 800m with a time of 1:50.63, and Karina Liz also stood out in the 800m run and she finished third in the women’s race at 2:11.11.

Up next the Tigers will head to the John McDonnell Invitational on April 13-14 in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
