-- Baylor track & field freshman Tuesdi Tidwell claimed the women's pole vault title on day one of the Texas Invitational Friday afternoon in Austin.

The Early, Texas native vaulted an outdoor season-best mark of 12-9 ½ (3.90m) and beat out three upperclassmen to claim the event title. Her jump moves her up to the second-best outdoor performer in program history, surpassing Kaleigh Teel who vaulted 12-7 ½ in 2008.

Junior Ryan Womack also had an impressive performance in the men's pole vault, jumping an outdoor season-best mark of 16-8 ¾ (5.10m) to finish third. It's his second-straight top-three performance and third of the season.

Wil London posted a top-four finish on the men's side as he ran a team-best 20.72 to be the third-best collegian in the event. Malik Wilson posted a time of 21.49 for 26th.
