STARKVILLE, Miss. – Despite rainy weather at the Carl Maddox Track Facility, the Mississippi State track and field team was not affected in its pursuit to finish on top, as the Southeastern Conference captured both men’s and women’s wins on Saturday at the Conference Challenge.

Working along side SEC foes Tennessee and Ole Miss, MSU donned six first-place finishes to help give the conference 360 points for the women and 287 for the men. The challengers, comprised of Illinois, Purdue, Louisiana Tech and Missouri State, claimed 217 on the women’s side, while the men earned 264 on the day.

"We competed hard today," MSU coach Steve Dudley said. "All around I am proud of the effort our athletes gave. We were in the mix in nearly every event, and that is what you ask for in the these types of events."

Highlighted by strong field performances and leadership from distance veterans, the Maroon and White squads were vital in aiding the SEC to victories. Allison Storey threw for 40.53 meters in the javelin to win the event and grab 10 points for the conference. Ebony Brinker also won her field event, after posting 38-09.00 in the triple jump, while Alyssa Hall finished second in the high jump, clearing 5-05.00.

Both MSU 4x400-meter relay teams surpassed their competition with ease, as the women clocked 3:42.51, and the men posted a time of 3:08.68 to finish first.

Meanwhile, Marcus Jackson, who was runner-up in the high jump at 2013 NCAA Indoors, kicked off his outdoor season by clearing 7-02.50 in the event and earning another first-place finish for the Bulldogs. Also excelling in field action was Jason Harper, who won the triple jump with a leap of 49-05.00.

“Representing the SEC is great, because it’s home to the nation’s best talent,” Harper said. “Competing along side with Tennessee and Ole Miss served as a reminder to other conferences that the SEC is a force to be reckoned with. Today I enjoyed winning for my team and for our conference.”

With help from Cornelia Griesche (10:47.39) and Adrianna Poole (11.08.19) in the women’s 3000-meter steeplechase, the pair collected 10 points, finishing second and fifth, respectively. Distance runners Juan Sanchez (3:52.41) and Patrick Monaghan (3:54.44) crossed the line at the front of the pack in the men’s 1500-meter run, as Sanchez finished second and Monaghan followed in third to add 14 points to the SEC total.

Also boasting top performances include Daundre Barnaby, who ran the 200-meter dash in 21.50 seconds to finish second, and Nathan Arnett whose time of 14.17 seconds in the 110-meter hurdles landed him in second as well.

Next on the schedule for MSU is a trip to Austin for the Texas Relays on March 27-30. For more information regarding the Bulldogs’ track action, follow the team on twitter (@msutracksarah).
