Stenzel, Bagley, and Tyson all had impressive outings this weekend at their various locations.
The Track Cats really don’t like to keep it easy on me. The University of Kentucky Track and Field team has split to four different locations over the past four days. The Penn Relays, Payton Jordan Invitational, Brutus Hamilton Invitational and Bellarmine Classic all played host to UK athletes as they look to freshen up for the SEC Championships which will be upon us in a little under two weeks.
Highlighting the action in Philadelphia in the Penn Relays yesterday was Keilah Tyson. Tyson broke her own UK Freshman record by .04 seconds as she ran an 11.48 second 100 meter dash to place second overall in the Championship race.
Raymond Dykstra placed fourth in the Men’s Javelin Throw as he heaved the Javelin 70.07 m.
Julie Nunn, Shiara Robinson, Tamyah Pipkin, and Keilah Tyson made up the Women’s 4×200 meter relay team that placed seventh with a 1:37.17. That breaks down to a little over 24 seconds for each lady’s split.
Brutus Hamilton Invitational:
Trent Halasek ran the Men’s One Mile championship run and came away with a 4:11.69 to place 13th.
Ben Mason and Brandon Bagley ran a two man show in this meet. Mason set two career bests yesterday with a 2nd place 10.86 second dash in the 100 meter and a 21.44 second 1st place finish in the Men’s 200 meter. Bagley also ran two career bests as he finished 2nd in the Men’s 400 meter hurdles with a 53.53 and 2nd in the Men’s 110 Meter High Hurdles with a 14.58 second finish.
Brittany Bitt recorded a career best in the Women’s Long Jump as she placed 7th. She spanned 17 feet 8 inches in her best attempt.
Freshman Todd Nibbs achieved a career best in his Long Jump event as well. He placed 10th with a 20 foot 6.25 inch leap.
Payton Jordan Cardinal Invitational:
The prestigious meet held at Stanford is just about to get underway for the UK athletes. The Cat athletes, both men and women, will compete in the 3,000 meter steeplechase, 1,500 meter run, 800 meter run, and 5,000 meter run. This is one of THE premier distance meets in the U.S. so I hope to see some blazing times come out of California.
