ISU track enjoys big night at IU's Billy Hayes Invitational

BLOOMINGTON — The Indiana State Sycamores either won or finished as the top collegian in 12 events, led by the record-breaking performance of senior Brandon Pounds at the 2013 Billy Hayes Invitational Friday at Indiana University.

Pounds broke his own school record to win the men’s hammer throw.

Pounds’ best throw came on his fifth attempt as he broke the school record by nearly a foot with a toss of 215 feet-2 inches. Pounds had the Indiana State record at 214-4 which he threw at the 2012 Auburn Tiger Track Classic.

Among other men’s winners were Greggmar Swift, who posted a victory in the men’s 110 meter hurdles, Taylor Head won the 3000 meter steeplechase, Max Tuttle finished as the top collegian in the men’s 400 meter hurdles and Chris Fields was the top collegian in the men’s shot put.

Fields placed second overall, but was the top collegian in the shot put at 55-7.

All four Sycamores in the men’s 110-meter hurdles also reached the finals, with Swift running a season-best 13.62 in winning the event. Maurice Lyke was right behind and finished second in 13.83,  which puts him sixth on the ISU all-time list. Adarius Washington ran 14.27 to finish fifth and Duane Brown was timed in 14.32 as he finished seventh.

Max Tuttle finished second overall but was the top collegian in the men’s 400 meter hurdles as he ran 52.66. Arqeil Shaw ran a career-best 53.14 to place third overall (second collegian) with Ray Skamay sixth overall in 53.98. Jermel Kindred (unattached) won the event in 51.23.

Taylor Head ran 9:13.84 to win the men’s 3,000 meter steeplechase with Bryan Horsman posting a career best 9:43.85 to finish fourth and Gabe Ocasio running 9:50.72 to place fifth.

Carmelia Stewart captured the women’s 100 meter hurdles with Katie Wise winning the 100 meters, Shelby Higginbottom the 400 meters, Felisha Johnson the hammer throw and the discus, Shalesa Smith the triple jump, and the 400 meter relay team was also a winner.

Johnson had a throw of 176-3 on her first attempt in the hammer throw, which held up as she won the event. Johnson won her second event of the competition later as she had a throw of 163-8 in the discus to win by more than five feet.

Smith soared to a career-best distance of 41-2 to win the women’s triple jump which is the third best distance in school history.

It was a good day for the Sycamore hurdlers with Indiana State recording two victories out of the four events and posting the top collegiate time in a third.

All five Indiana State competitors in the women’s 100 meter hurdles reached  the finals with Stewart running 13.84 to win the event. That is the second-fastest time in school history as she moved past former Sycamore Erica Moore, who ran 13.88 in 2008. Stacia Weatherford holds the school record of 13.68, set last year.

Taylor Gilles posted the fourth-fastest time in school history with a 13.95 finish in the preliminaries. She placed second in the finals with a time of 14.00.

Three Sycamores finished in the top eight of the women’s 100 meters, led by Wise, who ran the third-fastest time in school history (11.50) in winning the event. She moved past Jeanné Middleton (11.53 in 2009) and trails Holli Hyche (11.03 in 1994) and Omegia Keeys (11.38 in 1996). Demetra Camble finished third in 11.76 seconds (sixth fastest all-time) with Macey Black sixth in a career best 12.02.

Shelby Higginbottom ran a season-best 56.63 to win the 400 meters while Kaisha Martin, Black, Camble, and Wise combined to win the 400 meter relay with a time of 45.64.

    Reed took his talents to Kentucky and the Southeastern Conference in 2011 and hasn’t looked back in the baseball sense.

  • SPT 032414 COACH SANFORD.jpg ISU football set for first spring scrimmage

    Thanks to a limited number of available offensive linemen — a group that will at least double in numbers in the fall with the addition of recruits and currently injured players — the Sycamores won’t have a full-scale scrimmage, but will still intersperse scrimmage plays (with officials) among other practice drills.
    “We’re thin,” coach Mike Sanford admitted after practice Thursday. “The scrimmage will be part of practice — probably 30 or 40 plays altogether. We only have five to seven healthy offensive linemen, so we can’t go [in a scrimmage format] for long stretches of time.”

    During Indiana State’s injury-ravaged 2013 season, there wasn’t a unit on either side of the ball that was spared from the carnage.
    But if one had to be singled out as hardest hit in the injury department, it would be difficult to out-do the Sycamores’ secondary.
    Every player that started in ISU’s season opener at Indiana not only missed at least one game last season, but the entire starting unit was out of action by the end of September.

    Indiana State’s pitchers weren’t their best in Friday’s series opener against Illinois State, but it seemed the Sycamores might get away with it. Through seven innings, ISU had issued six walks, gave up six hits and hit a batter, but still trailed by just a run. But ISU’s luck with its generosity would give out in the eighth, and even if it hadn’t, Illinois State standout starter Dan Savas had the Sycamores’ bats in a deep freeze anyway. The Redbirds defeated the Sycamores 5-2 at Bob Warn Field.

    But a team in NAIA Division II with eight Indiana natives — and coached by former Valparaiso point guard Greg Tonagel, an Indiana All-Star for his hometown of LaPorte — brought home a national basketball championship.
    Tonagel, the scrappy point guard who played alongside Bryce Drew for that magical Valpo team, created more March hoops memories with the help of Rockville brothers R.J. and Lane Mahurin.
