COLUMBIA, Mo. - Championship season has arrived for the Tigers this week, as they prepare for the trip to College Station, Tx., where they will, once again, come head-to-head with the nation's best in the Southeastern Conference (SEC) Championships. Last year, the teams emerged from the fray with three All-SEC finishers and an SEC Champion in the then-freshman, Markesh Woodson. The teams will return to the arena on Thursday to build upon the successes of 2013 and continue re-writing the Missouri Record Books.
Events will begin on Thursday at Texas A&M's Gilliam Indoor Stadium with the men's heptathlon and women's pentathlon taking center stage. The men's heptathlon will continue into Friday, while the meet will go through Saturday evening.
Both the Aggie Network and ESPN3 will be providing a live stream of the events throughout the weekend. The Aggie Network will kick things off with coverage from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. CT on Thursday and Friday. ESPN3 will kick in starting at 2:55 p.m. ET on Friday, and 1:50 p.m. ET on Saturday.
The Championships will also air on ESPNU as a 90-minute highlight show on Monday, March 10, starting at 7:30 p.m. ET.
Re-Writing the Record Books
The Tigers have made a habit of updating the record books week-to-week as they took down 105 personal records (PR's), 22 All-Time Top Ten marks, and five School Record performances thus far during the 2013-14 season. Topping that list with four School Record marks is junior Kearsten Peoples, who took down the seven-year-old weight throw record, previously held by Elisha Hunt, and her own shot put record two times apiece. Her top mark for the weight throw stands at 21.18m (69-6), while the shot put record is holding at 17.51m (57-5.5).
Making his second mark on the Missouri Record Board was sophomore Markesh Woodson, who now holds the leading times in both the 60-meter dash (6.60) and 200-meter dash (21.13).
Eighteen more All-Time Top Ten performers will be making appearances in the Gilliam Indoor Stadium this week, including:
