Track and Field Escapes Winter Weather with Missouri Southern Meet
JOPLIN, Mo. -- With the start of February upon the track and field Bears, thoughts turn to the Missouri Valley Conference Championships, Feb. 26-27, and preparation began with a small group of Bears' sprinters and throwers at the Fazoli's/Baymont Inn Invitational hosted by Missouri Southern.
The three 60-meter dash finalists, Joseph, Peavy and Dull, finished fourth, sixth and ninth, respectively. Joseph finished in 7.80 seconds, while Peavy clocked in at 7.86 and Dull at 7.88.
Dull finished in 7.77 seconds, not only the top time of any competitor Friday, but also the top time of any Bear this season. Joseph was close behind at 7.83 seconds. Sydney Peavy (Fr., Kansas City, Mo.) was the final Bear qualifier with a time of 8.02.
