Fayetteville, Ark. - Chris Cardwell and Kaleigh Teel set Baylor records, and the men's 4x400 relay team won for the fourth time this season to highlight Baylor's second day of competition at the Tyson Invitational Saturday in Fayetteville, Ark.
Cardwell, a senior from Abilene, Texas, recorded a distance of 16.81 meters (55-02) in the men's weight throw to break his own Baylor standard in the event. A sophomore from Friendswood, Texas, Teel recorded a height of 3.68 meters (12-00.75) to set a new school record in the women's pole vault and place 11th in the event.
"We were really able to end [the meet] on a good note," said second-year head coach Todd Harbour. "Great things happened for us today. We were able to record some NCAA qualifying times, and we had a lot of personal bests this weekend."
The Bears 4x400 relay team of sophomore R.J. Anderson, freshmen David Gettis and J.T. Scheuerman and sophomore Quentin Iglehart-Summers
won the event in 3:08.07, with Inglehart-Summers running a 45.8 anchor leg to secure the victory. Using seven different runners through four meets, Baylor's men's 4x400 has won four of its five races and been the first-place collegiate team in every race. Its only setback came to Team USA in the Invitational 4x400 at the Tyson Invitational, Feb. 9.
