COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- The TCU track and field team opened the indoor season on Saturday at the Reveille Invitational hosted by Texas A&M. The men's weight throwers highlighted the day for the Horned Frogs, led by a school record throw by sophomore Isaiah Rogers.
Rogers set a new school record in the weight throw, throwing for 63 feet 3.5 inches (19.29m). The previous record was 62 feet 1 inches held by Cameron Tabor since 2012. Following his record-breaking throw, Rogers threw for 57 feet 2.75 inches in the men's shot put and finished third.
Two more Horned Frogs passed the 60 foot mark, with Justin Sanchez and Ryan Camp reaching 62 feet 4 inches (19.00m) and 61 feet 11.5 inches (18.88m) respectively. Sanchez's throw ranks second in TCU indoor history behind Rogers.
The men's 4X400 tandem of Jostyn Andrews, Kevin McClanahan, Darrion Flowers, and Derrick Mokaleng opened the season with a 3.07.87 mark, one second off of the team's best mark from last season (3:06.84).
Leilyn Miles had a strong showing in shot put, throwing 46 feet 10 inches (14.27m) and finishing second.
"It was a good start to the season, especially in the weight throw," head coach Darryl Anderson said. "The weight throw is an event we really want to do well in at the conference level and our guys are set up to do that. The 60. guys competed well, finishing second and third. The mile relay ran well also. 3:07 is good for them at this point. On the women's side, I thought Leilyn competed well in the shot. All in all, it was good to come here, get the competitive juices flowing and see our athletes in a competitive environment before sending them off on Christmas break."
The Horned Frogs will return to action in the new year at the Texas Tech Invitational, scheduled for Jan. 9.
