Jan. 19, 2007
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- Virgil Hodge recorded an NCAA provisional mark in the women's 200 meters to highlight the TCU track and field team's opening day at the Razorback Invitational.
Hodge's time of 23.64 was just shy of a personal-best 23.46. Kishelle Paul was fourth at 24.49.
Rounding out the highlights for the Flyin' Frog women on day one was Neidra Covington with a fifth-place finish in the long jump at 5.77m (18-11.25).
In the men's 200 meters, Delwayne Delaney topped all collegians while placing fourth overall with a time of 21.48.
Freshman Trey Jordan had a personal-best toss of 16.94m (55-07.00) to finish third in the men's shot put.
The Flyin' Frogs are competing in Fayetteville for the second straight weekend after opening the indoor season last Friday at the Arkansas Invitational.
With his team's training limited during the week because of inclement weather, TCU coach Darryl Anderson was pleased with his squad's performance.
"We looked a lot better than we did last week," Anderson said. "With a week of virtually no training, we had a very good first day.
"We made progress. We'll now get some rest and prepare for another day of training tomorrow."
