TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - The Southern Miss track and field teams wrapped up competition at the Alabama Relays, posting 18 top 10 finishes in the running and field events.
The weekend was highlighted by the two performances of Kyle Smith and Tamarra Bowie. Smith registered the top mark in the javelin with a throw of 66.42m (217-11). Bowie claimed the triple jump title with a jump of 11.76m (38-7).
"We made the decision to rest some of our top kids and I felt like we performed well as a team despite singular off a hard week of practice," Coach Kevin Stephen said. "We had two event winners and 18 top 10 finishers with one school record doing down. Look for us to be rested and perform strongly with a full contingent at Auburn."
