Kentucky took off from competition last weekend. Two weeks ago at the Razorback Invitational, the Wildcats broke two school records and won three events.
- Keaton Daniel broke his own school record in the men’s pole vault, as he ascended 18 feet, 10.25 inches / 5.75 meters. The senior from Henderson, Nevada, also continued his undefeated streak of wins in all four indoor meets this season.
- Joining Daniel in the victory circle was senior Kennedy Lightner, who zipped 20.71 seconds to claim the men’s 200-meter dash for the second meet in a row.
- In the shot put, graduate student Josh Sobota earned his third victory this season by heaving the sphere 65’11”/20.09m.
- In addition, Sydney Steely, Christal Mosley, Jenna Schwinghamer and Tori Herman set a school-record time of 10:58.26 in the distance medley relay.
