The Bulldogs completed their stint Saturday at the Razorbacks' Randal Tyson Track Center with five Top 5 finishes, highlighted by the MSU men's distance medley team's second-place finish. The foursome, which included twins Andrew and Patrick Monaghan, Jarrett Samuels, and Brandon McBride, turned in a time of 9.52 seconds to find themselves at the top of the board.
The Lady Bulldogs also captured attention with Alyssa Hall's first-place victory (5-09.75) and Erica Bougrad's third-place performance in the high jump (5-07.75), coupled with action by the 4x400-meter relay team of Ocian Archer, Jody-Ann Muir, Erica Bougard and Kanisha Carey. The quartet raced in 3:41.21 seconds to give the MSU women a fourth-place finish.
Meanwhile in Alabama, MSU dominated the competition with top field performances. Sojourner Ewing (18-10.75) posted a third-place finish in the long jump, and Megan Walker (11-11.75) saw a Top 10 finish in the pole vault, as she earned a spot in eighth.
Antavius McGhee (23-02.50) stood out for the MSU men, finishing fifth in the long jump, followed by A.J. Ward's (23-00.50) seventh-place jump. Later in the day, Nathan Lewis ran the 3000-meter run in 8:31.47 seconds to reach a spot in fourth.
The Maroon and White take a week's rest before heading to Baton Rouge for the LSU Twilight Invitational on Feb. 15.
