Iowa State Classic - National champions, All-Americans, Olympic qualifiers and conference champions competed in a field of over 1000 athletes at the Iowa State Classic this weekend. The final days of the meet came to a close with 16 NCAA automatic and 123 provisional qualifying times as well as two new stadium records. The Southeast team competed exceptionally well against top competition.

For the men, Miles Smith was the highlight of the weekend. He placed 4th in the 200m dash in 21.42. This time is a new indoor school record. Smith placed 3rd in the 400m dash in 46.61, a new school indoor record and a NCAA provisional qualifying time. These times also put him at the top of OVC best list.

The men's mile relay also shined, breaking the school indoor record and meeting the NCAA qualifying time. Walter Washington, Alonzo Nelson, Chaz Brown and Miles Smith finished in 3:09.92 giving them 7th place. Brian Knippen also competed well placing 15th in shot put with a throw of 55'3", the best throw in the OVC.


On the women's side, Brooke Woodruff proved herself as a top runner when she finished the 800m run in 2:08.71. Her 7th place finish was a NCAA provisional qualifying time and the best in the OVC.

Kathy Coleman placed 16th in the 60m dash finals in a time of 7.73 which is currently the best time in the OVC. She also placed 8th in the long jump finals with a jump of 19'4".
