The SEC Championship meet brought Mizzou’s Indoor Track and Field season came to a close, this past weekend. The Tigers grabbed three medals, a new school record, and one SEC title. Sophomore Martin Prodanov put on a show in the last 200m of the mile. Overcoming almost the entire field of runners, Prodanov came from behind and edged his way to a win. This was Mizzou’s first men’s SEC title since joining the conference. Overall, the men finished seventh with forty-three points and the women finished 10th with 24.5 points.

Sophomore Arianna Fisher set a new school record in the triple jump with a mark of 13.25m. The new school record was a PR for Fisher by nearly a foot, and was good for fourth place at the meet.

Redshirt junior Jordan McClendon, who’s been a standout all season, found herself on the podium for the second straight year, with her 20.98m mark in the weight throw. McClendon finished third overall, good for All-SEC honors.

Redshirt senior Thomas George finished second in the 3000m with a time of 8:11.04. George came in only 0.8 seconds behind Arkansas’ Cameron Griffith.

Up next, a few Tigers will prepare to move on to the NCAA Championship Meet in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The meet will take place on March 13th and 14th. The reset of the team will begin preparing for the outdoor season which looms ever closer. The first outdoor meets of the year are scheduled for March 20th. The Tigers are slated to split up and see action at both SIUe and the Baldy Castillo Invitational in Tempe, Arizona.
