CEDAR FALLS, Iowa — Indiana State’s Robert Webb broke the school record in the heptathlon and was top collegian and second overall at the 2013 Jack Jennett Invitational which ended Sunday at Northern Iowa.

Webb scored 5,221 points, bettering the mark of 5,189 points established by Anthony Bertoli in 2008. Daniel Gooris, former Northern Iowa athlete and two-time MVC indoor champion, competed unattached and scored 5,252.

Indiana State’s Brett Wehmiller competed in his first heptathlon and finished seventh overall with 4,627 points, which puts him sixth on ISU’s all-time list.

Webb set a career best in pole vault of 14-feet-5 1⁄4 to place third and was fifth in the 60-meter hurdles (8.67) and third in the 1,000 meters (2:54.67) on Sunday. On the first day of competition he was third in the 60 meters (career-best 7.17), won long jump (22-1 3/4), was third in shot put (career-best 38-0) and tied for second in high jump (6-6 1/4).

Also at Northern Iowa was ISU vaulter Richelle Kimble, fourth overall and top collegian at 12-3 1⁄2. Nicole Hope, who has one season of outdoor eligibility left, competed unattached and finished second at 13-11 1⁄4.

The pole vault winner was familiar too. Former Sycamore national champion Kylie Hutson competed for Nike and won at 14-3 1⁄4.

Also vaulting for ISU’s women were Alyssa Markiewicz (career-best 11-9 3/4), Kimyanna Rudolph (11-9 3/4) and Lauren Rice (11-3 3-4). Hannah McKnight failed to clear the opening height.

Three men’s vaulters cleared 15-7, with Connor Curley finishing sixth, Wes Schenck seventh and Drew LaMaster eighth. It was a career-best height for Schenck and tied Curley’s personal best.

Nikija Pujate competed in her first triple jump for the ISU women and placed sixth at 35-7.
