CLEMSON, S.C. and SEATTLE, Wash. — Masai Russell remained undefeated in hurdles races this season, winning the 60-meter hurdles with a time of 7.94 on Friday at the Tiger Paw Invitational, where much of the Kentucky track & field teams are competing this weekend. A crew of distance runners are also at the Husky Classic in Seattle, Washington. 

Russell won each of the three rounds she entered on Friday with an 8.02Q in the first round and 7.92Q in the semifinals round at her first hurdles competition since breaking the collegiate record with a 7.75 in Lubbock, Texas three weeks ago.  

Russell’s next competition is likely to be the Southeastern Conference Championships in a fortnight. Russell has won the 60H at each of the four meets where she has run the hurdles this season. 

Yasmin Brooks was sixth in the Tiger Paw women’s 60m hurdles final with a time of 8.18. 

Logan Coles began the day for the Wildcats at Tiger Paw with a podium finish in the men’s open weight throw. His 65-feet, nine-inch/20.04 meters throw was a personal best, moving up to No. 6 on the UK all-time performers’ list. Michael Browning placed fourth (65’1.5”/19.85m) and Dennis Ohene-Adu placed fifth with a new PB (64’4”/19.61m) that moved him to No. 10 on the UK all-time performers’ list. 

Jordan Anthony was sixth (fifth overall collegian) in the Tiger Paw men’s 60m final with a time of 6.68 in the third round he had run on Friday. 

Tiger Paw day two begins at 10 a.m. for field events with running events commencing at 11:35 a.m. The final event expects to begin at 3:45 p.m. 

Meanwhile in Seattle, UK distance runners are competing in the Husky Classic. Jake Allen turned in the best performance on Friday, finishing seventh in the open 3,000-meter competition with a personal-best time of 8:01.22. 

Saturday’s Husky Classic distance events begin at 3 p.m. ET (noon Pacific) and conclude at 5:50 p.m. ET (2:50 p.m. Pacific).
