The thrower also had a third-place discus finish of 50.54 meters.

Also bringing in a bronze medal was triple jumper Akinshe Calica-Hill, whose 48’7.25” leap marked him as not only third at the meet but fifth in the Sun Belt as well.

The Bobcats also showed out in the women’s 100-meter hurdles with Kylah Smith, Kattiana Ealy-Pulido and Javlyn Cameron finishing second, fourth and fifth. Smith’s time of 13.69 seconds secures her spot at second in the conference as well, with Ealy-Pulido and Cameron finishing at eighth and ninth.

Senior Tramesha Hardy rose to 2nd in the Sun Belt in the 200 meters with a time of 23.37 seconds. Hardy also ran alongside Dawnshae Evans, Ealy-Pulido and Breonna Hall in the 4 x 400 relay for a 3:44.66 finish, placing the group at third in the conference.
