Josh Sobota and Luke Brown Have Field Day at Tiger Paw Invitational

CLEMSON, S.C. and SEATTLE, Wash. — It was a field day for the Kentucky track and field team Saturday at the Tiger Paw Invitational in Clemson, S.C., as Josh Sobota claimed his fourth win of the season in the shot put and Luke Brown lengthened his own school record in the triple jump. 

Making his season debut, Brown opened the day by improving his triple-jump school record by six inches to 53 feet, 11 inches/16.43 meters. He placed second in the event.  

Sobota won his fourth shot-put competition, out of five appearances this season, with a mark of 65’4.25”/19.92m. 

UK added to the success in the track events. Karimah Davis, Masai Russell, Christal Mosley and Dajour Miles ran a season-best 3:29.40 to finish as runners-up in the women’s 4×400-meter relay, moving to No. 5 on UK all-time list. 

Kennedy Lightner placed third in the Tiger Paw men’s 200m with a time of 20.54, a season best. 

Meanwhile at the Husky Invitational in Seattle, Jenna Schwinghamer led the way with a third-place slot in the women’s 800-meter run. Her time of 2:04.84 is an indoor personal best and improves her No. 2 mark on the UK all-time performers’ list. Sydney Steely came in sixth in the event with a time of 2:04.94, a personal best while at UK and No. 3 on the UK all-time performers’ list.
