It was an impressive 2nd meet of the indoor season for the Darts. We brought the biggest TEAM to the BYU Invitational, and left with the most medals and t-shirts. It was fun to see so many of our athletes compete hard and set some personal bests. We were led by 2 school records (also Smith Fieldhouse Records): Bryce Hall broke his brother’s school and stadium record in the weight throw (57'08.25). And Candace Eddy ran 11:11.59 to set a new school and stadium record in the 2 mile. Natalie Haws also broke the school record with her 2nd place finish of 11:18.64.
