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.
