Two Tigerbelles Earn Second-Place Finishes in First Outdoor Meet of the Season

FINAL RESULTS

NASHVILLE — The Tigerbelles were fueled by four top-10 finishes in a talented field at the Yellow Jacket Invitational Friday and Saturday.

Angel Horton showcased why she was one of the best indoor triple jump athletes last season to place second in the outdoor meet with a mark of 38-10.50 in a field of 12.

Mikayla Thompson delivered a virtuoso performance with a second and sixth place finish at the Yellow Jacket Invite. Thompson placed second in the shot put with a mark of 47-05.25 and sixth in the discus throw with a mark of 142-01.

Redshirt-sophomore Grenetria Shell earned herself a top-20 finish to place 17th in the 100-meter dash with a time of 15.08.
