Baylor Track & Field Earns Eight Event Titles at Roadrunners Invitational

WACO, TX (KXXV) -

The Baylor track and field team racked up eight event titles on the final day of the Roadrunners Invitational Saturday at the Park West Athletics Complex.

The event titles, seven for the women and one for the men, propelled the women to a second-place finish in the team standings with 145 points, while the men were fourth with 96.5 points.

The BU women cleaned up in the track events, starting in the sprints. Taylor Bennett cruised to victory in the 100-meter dash with a time of 11.51, which was .37 seconds better than anyone in the field.

Freshman Victoria Powell continued her solid start to the outdoor season by winning the 400-meter crown in 53.90. Last week, Powell was the quartermile runner-up at the TCU Invitational with a time of 53.73.

Running at a shorter distance than her 1,500-meter specialty, Maggie Montoya set a personal-best in the 800 meters and won the event title in 2:10.51.

To open her outdoor season, Kiana Hawn won the 400-meter hurdle title in 59.14. That mark is currently sixth-best in the NCAA. BU actually swept the hurdle event as Antwuan Musgrove picked up the BU men’s lone title with a time of 52.27. It was Musgrove’s second-straight title in the event, after winning the TCU Invitational crown in 51.83 last week.

Baylor’s 4x400-meter relay of Powell, Hawn, Jhane’ King and Leticia De Souza closed out the winning for Baylor in a stadium record time of 3:33.98. That mark is also currently the top-time in the nation.

In the field events, Annie Rhodes produced the top clearance in the NCAA for 2017 with a mark of 14-1.25 [4.30m]. That height is also tied for seventh-best in school history.

For her second title in two days, Cion Hicks won the discus throw with a best attempt of 176-7 [53.83m]. On Friday, Hicks captured the meet’s shot put crown.

Both of BU’s 4x100-meter squads secured runner-up finishes, along with a second-place finish for Baylor’s men’s 4x400-meter relay of Caleb Dickson, Brandon Moore, Wil London and George Caddick in 3:06.08.

Baylor also had five other runner-up finishes Saturday, including Malik Wilson (100m),  Anna West (1,500m), Rhys Phillips (110mh), Ryan Womack (pole vault) and Rachel Toliver (triple jump).

WHAT'S NEXT
Next week, the majority of Baylor's athletes will be in action at the Texas Relays in Austin starting on Wednesday and running through Saturday.
