TCU has strong showing at Razorback Invitational
Jan. 23, 2009
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - TCU opened the first day of the Razorback Invitational on Friday with a solid showing at the Randal Tyson Track Center.
"It was not bad today," said head coach Darryl Anderson. "It is interesting to see how our young men and women do during this early season. I thought Mychal and Whitney weren't bad and did a good job overall. We will come back tomorrow and see where we are at."
In the men's 200, Mychal Dungey, a 2008 Outdoor All-American, led the TCU attack by crossing the finish line in 21.52 to place fourth overall on Friday night. Dungey's seasonal-best time is currently the top time posted in the Mountain West Conference in 2009 and just missed an NCAA provisional mark.
In the women's long jump, freshman Whitney Gipson soared 19 feet, 5 ½ inches to place fourth out of 32 competitors. Gipson's seasonal-best jump is currently the third-best leap in the conference this winter.
TCU will resume action tomorrow in Fayetteville. On Saturday, the men's 3,000 will begin competition at 10 a.m., while the women's triple jump will open field events at 1 p.m.
