FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- A day after setting the school record in the mile, TCU senior Tricia Terrywon the women's 3,000 meters Saturday at the Tyson Invitational.
Terry posted the time of 9 minutes, 37.70 seconds, beating Alabama's Hilary Stafford, who finished second, by nearly five seconds.
"It was really good for her to do the double (mile Friday, 3,000 Saturday) because she'll be doing the same thing at the Big 12 Championships," TCU coach Darryl Andersonsaid. "It was a dry run of what she'll be doing in two weeks."
Friday night, Terry broke the school record in the mile by five seconds with the time of 4:42.52.
In all, Anderson liked how the team competed in the final tune-up of the indoor season before conference.
"We got some things done and the people that were there competed well," he said. "Now it's time to get back training and get ready for the Big 12 Championships at the end of the month."
Along with Terry's school record in the mile, TCU freshman Jordan Mooreset a new school record in the 60-meter hurdles (7.70).
Also Saturday, TCU's Megan Smithplaced fourth in the women's shot put with a mark of 52 feet, 4 inches.
"She's been consistently throwing 52 feet and now it's time to take the next step to get to 53-54 feet and beyond," Anderson said.
"I was pleased with their performances," Anderson said.
The Frogs are back in action Feb. 28 and March 1 at the Big 12 Conference Indoor Championships in Ames, Iowa.
