The Hoosiers rounded out the weekend at the Stanford’s Cardinal Classic and Auburn’s War Eagle Invitational with six new personal records. 

At the Cardinal Classic, IU competed in the 800-meter race and the 1,500-meter race. 

On Friday, sophomore Joely Pinkston competed in the second heat of the 800 and earned second place with a time of 2:08.85. This is a new personal record for Pinkston.

Senior Kendell Wiles finished third in the first heat of the 800 with a time of 2:06.25. 

Saturday, the Hoosiers participated in the 1,500 where each athlete earned a new personal best. 

Freshmen Hannah Stoffel and Lexa Barrott competed in the fourth heat of the race. Stoffel finished in third place, earning a time of 4:26.48, whereas Barrott finished in fifth with a time of 4:29.31.

In the second heat, juniors Kelsey and Haley Harris competed, earning second and third place respectively. Kelsey finished with a time of 4:22.95, just four-hundredths of a second behind the first place competitor. Haley finished with a time of 4:22.52, dropping around three seconds off her last personal record.

Junior Katherine Receveur also had a solid performance this weekend, earning fourth place in the first heat of the 1,500. She finished with a time of 4:14.92, dropping about a second and a half off her previous personal record. 

The throwers struggled to excel this weekend at the War Eagle Invitational.

Saturday, sophomore Khayla Dawson finished fourth in the shot put event, with a distance of 16.82 meters. She also finished sixth in the discus throw with a distance of 44.95 meters.
