SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Last weekend, the Mississippi State women’s distance medley relay team broke an 11-year-old school record at the Tyson Invitational.
This weekend at the Alex Wilson Invitational, it was the men’s turn.
In familiar fashion, the Bulldog distance medley relay team clocked a record-breaking time of 9:33.61 to secure the school’s top indoor speed. The quartet, comprised of Patrick Monoghan, Scottie Hearn, Brandon McBride and Damian Roszko, finished 10th at the Notre Dame event.
“It’s a pleasure being part of such a team,” McBride said. “Seeing everything come together was a treat.”
Having another outstanding performance, All-American Jason Harper claimed the best leap of the day in the triple jump, posting a mark of 51-06.5 for the win.
Jarrett Samuels finished fourth in the men’s long jump with a leap of 24-00.50, and the men’s 4x400-meter relay clocked a fourth-place time of 3:07.79. Dustin James II, Hearn, McBride and Samuels made up the foursome.
The No. 22 MSU women did not compete this weekend, as they prepare for the Southeastern Conference Indoor Championships slated for Feb. 27-March 1 in College Station.
