GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- TCU track and field coach Darryl Anderson said the purpose of this weekend's Florida Relays was to see his team make progress, and the Frogs did just that.

TCU junior Megan Smith added her second Top 4 finish Saturday in the women's shot put with a throw of 53-04 to place fourth overall.

Friday, Smith won the women's discus with a school-record tying throw of 181-00.

"We had some good things happen this weekend, and we were pleased with our improvements," Anderson said.

In the 4 x 100 meters, the team of Malik Summers, Sam Watts, Ronnie Baker and Harvey McSwain placed seventh overall with the time of 39.69.

"That was a pleasant improvement," Anderson said.

The 4 x 400 team of McSwain, Narada Jackson, Justin Chambers and Baker finished second in its section with the time of 3:06.57, which was nearly a second better than last week at the Texas Relays. Entering the meet, the Frogs had the eighth-fastest time in the country.

"We felt like we improved on the things that we needed to improve upon," Anderson said. "The relays are going to get better. We'll keep going a little at time and keep getting better."

The Frogs are back in action next Saturday at the Rafer Johnson/Jackie Joyner-Kersee Invitational at UCLA.
