Prodanov, Fisher set Missouri indoor records at Tyson Invitational – Columbia Missourian

Missouri track and field opened the second day of competition at the Tyson Invitational in Fayetteville, Arkansas, breaking program records.

Juniors Martin Prodanov and Arianna Fisher punched their names at the top of their respective events in program history as the Tigers hit 23 new personal records Saturday.

Prodanov out-kicked his opponents in the last 100 meters of the men’s mile, finishing first in the event with a PR of 3 minutes, 58.72 seconds. The junior now ranks first in MU indoor history for the men’s mile as the first Tiger to ever break 4:00.

“It’s been a long time coming for (Prodanov), and I couldn’t be more proud of him,” assistant coach Stephen Smith said. “He trusts the process and puts the work in every day. We got two weeks to get fine-tuned and ready to roll down in College Station.”

Fisher broke her previous indoor school record for the second straight meet with a PR of 44 feet, 7 inches in the women’s triple jump, finishing third in the event. The jump ranks her fifth in the NCAA. 

On the men’s side, junior Georgi Nachev took second with a leap of 53 feet, 3.5 inches after finishing in first place at Missouri’s last meet at the Randal Tyson Track Center. 

In the women’s high jump, freshman Claudina Diaz took first with a PR of 5 feet, 11.5 inches, tying her for third in school history. Diaz now ranks No. 13 in the NCAA for the indoor season. 

Junior Reilly Revord took second in the women’s mile, setting a new PR with a time of 4:53.07. 

The women’s 4×400 team — sophomore Rondajai Washington, graduate student Savannah Nevels, freshman Mya Drayton and sophomore Kelsey Schweizer — also broke into the program’s top 10, moving to seventh with a time of 3:45.54. 

The Tigers are scheduled to return to the track next Saturday at the JDL Fast Track in Winston Salem, North Carolina, but their plans are up for changing. This will be Missouri’s final meet before the SEC Indoor Championship.

Stars lose heartbreaker to Williams Baptist

A 3-pointer by Alexis Scott-Windham with three seconds left in regulation should have put the game away for Stephens basketball. After losing five straight, after being up 11points against Williams Baptist at halftime, after Marveen Ross scored 20 points in regulation, that 3-pointer had to be the winning shot. 

Reesa Hampton had other plans. With just a second left on the shot clock, Hampton scored a 3-pointer to send the Eagles and Stars into overtime tied at 66. 

As the two teams traded the lead back and forth for five minutes, it looked like the game would see five more minutes of play after a 3-pointer by Ross with three seconds left once again. 

But then Stephens’ Tashawn Ducker fouled Tristan Richards on the inbound pass with a second remaining. Richards made the Stars pay, hitting both free throws. The Eagles defeated the Stars 79-77 in overtime on senior night.

Ross ended with a career high 25 points and was accompanied by Allison Moore who scored 20. Cedreanna Lee also scored 10.

The Eagles had five players in double-digit points, including Kaylee Clark who scored 20. Much of the work was done at the charity stripe, with the Stars committing 33 fouls during the game, resulting in 26 made free throws on 43 trips to the line.

The Stars play their final home game of the season at 3 p.m. Monday when they take on Central Baptist.
