Our Saints track and field team may have been breaking in the new track surface at their first home meet in two years with many outstanding performances but the best performances of the day went to the NWAACC Women’s Field Athlete of the Week, McKenzie Warren. Warren broke her own school record in the discus with 145’02 and was close to her record in the hammer with a throw of 162’05 beating many athletes from four-year schools. The Lady Saints were also led by Marley Yates’ victory in the high jump with a jump of 5’3 ¼, runner-up performances by Megan Nelson’s in the javelin (132’11), Xayna Robinson in the triple jump (35’1) and Courtney Andre’s third place in the 400 meter hurdles (1:07.74).
