Sunday, January 29—

Junior Karissa Schweizer won the mile run on the second day of the Missouri Invitational with the best time of her career at 4:35.61. This time was just 1.02 seconds behind the Missouri school record, which was set by Laura Roxberg in 2013. Schweizer has been on a roll lately, as she also took first in the mile run during the Commodore Invitational two weeks ago.

Schweizer was one of eight top-10 finishers on the day for the Tigers, and she was one of 10 Tigers to record personal records. Three of the other nine Tigers to record personal bests did so in the mile run, just like Schweizer; seniors Teylar Adelsberger and Bianca Mello for the women and senior Luca Russo for the men.

There were two fifth-place finishes in the 400m dash, as senior Laquisha Jackson, who already held the third-fastest time in school history, bested that time and recorded a personal best by .20 seconds. On the men’s side, sophomore Kahmari Montgomery posted a time of 46.57 seconds.

Redshirt sophomore Gabi Jacobs placed higher than any other Tiger for field events on Saturday with a sixth-place finish in the shot put (14.52m).

Day one only saw three top-ten finishers and one personal record. The personal record came from redshirt freshman Patrick Kunza with a 17.99m weight throw good for 10th place.

The other individual top-10 finisher on day one was sophomore Karissa Roman; Roman finished sixth in the high jump with a jump of 1.68m.

The Tigers will have a week off before splitting off to either Ames, Iowa, for the Iowa State Classic or back to Fayetteville, Arkansas, for the Tyson Invitational. Both events are on Feb. 10-11.
