Freshman Jenna Brazeal was the top individual performer for the women’s team. Brazeal finished third in the 800-meter race with a time of 2:21.34. She was close to breaking her second school record of the weekend after claiming the 1000-meter time yesterday. Brazeal was less than one second from surpassing Haley Dennard’s 2016 800m record (2:20.45). Dennard and Johnnie Wilkinson also placed in the top-10 of the 800m with times of 2:27.20 (7th) and 2:35.82 (8th), respectively.

Palmer posted a 7.17 (23-6 1/4) in the men’s long jump. The NCAA provisional mark for that event is 7.13m. The sophomore also broke the program record for the long jump, surpassing William Carlton’s 2016 record of 22-5 1/2.

One day after breaking the 1000-meter program record, senior Michael Simcho was the top individual performer for the men’s team. Simcho placed fourth in the 800-meter race with a time of 1:56.90. Jesus Mata also placed in the top-10 of that event with a time of 1:59.02 (7th).

In the track events, the Texans had 11 top 10 finishers, four females and seven male runners. Two women and one male finished in the top 10 of the field events on Saturday.
