Maryville, MO - The throwers started the day off as Florida Siaosi won the discus with a national qualifying mark of 141-11 (43.25 meters) and blowing away the competition.

"Coming into the meet I felt that the weather conditions would play a factor into how we would perform today, but the team rose to the occasion proved me wrong," noted head coach Daniel Alvarado.

Siaosi's throw currently ranks her seventh in the nation in the discus. She would also compete in the shot and place second with a throw of 42-00 (12.80 meters).

"I think that she has a legitimate chance of being a double All-American this season," added Alvarado.

Other standout performances included Denise Atualevao who placed third overall in the javelin with a throw of 121-01 (36.90 meters), a personal best by just over four meters. Alice Ross once again continued to improve as she set a personal best in the 1500 meters with a time of 5:14.04 to improve her all-time best 1500 meter time by just over four seconds.

On the men's side, Keith Mayfield paced GU as his performance in the shot put resulted in a throw of 47-5 (14.45 meters) that landed him first place and a personal best by a foot. Mayfield's throw currently ranks him first in the HAAC.

Alex Stewart continued to improve in his javelin as he threw 179-07 (54.73 meters) to place him second overall at the meet and rank him atop the conference rankings. Kyle Stewart continued to lead the team in the sprints, finishing third in the 100 meters with a 11.21 and placed fifth in the 200 meters with a time of 22.71.

Currently, Stewart is ranked fifth in the 100 meters, third in the 200 meters and fourth in the 400 meters in the conference rankings.

Both teams will now prepare this upcoming Friday and Saturday, competing in the Jim Duncan Invite held at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa.
