Athletic athletics greets seniors at Spry’s last home meeting

AUBURN, Ala. – The Auburn athletic team closed the Invitational War Eagle Saturday, celebrating the head coach Ralph Spry and his 24 seniors at their last meeting on the Hutsell-Rosen track.

“This is one of the strangest groups I’ve had the honor of training in my 25 years,” Spry said. “They have a lot of fighting and a lot of determination, which is exactly what you like to see as a coach. I’m very proud of how far everyone has come, but the work is not finished yet. We will finish this season in the right way.”

In its curtain, the senior class performed the show and collected six different victories.

All American Madi Malone she launched the event on Friday afternoon, not only by winning the women’s hammer throw, but also breaking her own school record for the second time in a month. The Wichita, Kansas-born series included three throws better than her previous record and settled in first place with a remarkable distance of 69.12 m / 226-09.

Malone was followed by a dangerous duo Keira McCarrell a Ashley Carter in javelin throw, both of which are in the national ranking of the top 15 in this event. McCarrell threw for 53.69 m / 176-01 and finished second, while Carter finished first with the best throw of his career 54.03 m / 177-03. Carter’s highest roll came on her last attempt, when she made a 13-foot jump from the mark that had been marked on the roll before.

The Auburn throwers collected two more wins along the way Kyle Brown in a male hammer and Maura Huwalt in the women’s disc. Brown reached a career high of 68.07 m / 223-04 in his fourth attempt to maintain first place. Huwalt recorded the best result of the season at 53.41 m / 175-02, winning her second home event this season.

Erik Ebel a Jocelynn Budwig scored Auburn’s overall points and finished third behind Brown and Huwald. Ebel hour 65.92 m / 216-03 in hammer and Budwig hour 50.12 m / 164-05 in disk.

Switching to the distance side, seniors Presley Weems a Joyce Kimeli they competed as well as their entire careers. Weems finished another top 10 in the Auburn record book with a time of 2: 06.72 in the women’s 800m and Kimeli set a national lead time of 9: 41.15 in the women’s 3000m hurdles.

It was once again for Tiger jumps Dontavious Hill a Janaya Jones terminal guide. Hill was only reluctant to deal with his external PR in the high jump, beating 2.21 m / 7-3 on the first clean attempt, but he still managed to win a share of the title with Southern Miss Corvell Todd. For Jones in the long jump, it was a flight in which the second PR was on each of her first three jumps, which led to a silver placement with a final mark of 6.13 m / 20-1.5.

NEXT
The Tigers set out for their state rival at the Crimson Tide Invitational, which will take place April 22-23 at Sam Bailey Track & Field in Tuscaloos, Alabama.
