The Arizona State University track and field team sent athletes to a pair of meets over the weekend and, once again, returned to the Valley of the Sun with numerous marks recorded that rank among the best in the nation as well as the best in school history. The Sun Devils competed at the New Mexico Classic and Multis on Friday and Saturday in Albuquerque, N.M., while a handful of throwers competed in the NAU Team Challenge in Flagstaff, Ariz., on Saturday.
Jasmine Chaney once again made a statement as she ran 23.22 in the 200m dash and 53.37 in the 400m dash, both of which are personal-bests and ranks second and third, respectively, in ASU history. Those times also currently rank her seventh and fifth, respectively, in the NCAA so far this year.
Also for the women, Keia Pinnick and Samantha Henderson went 1-2 in the pentathlon with both setting personal bests. Pinnick won the event with 3,908 points to rank 14th in the nation right now and second all-time in ASU history. Henderson scored 3,785 points to take second and post the third-best total in ASU history.
On the men’s side, rookie Bryan McBride recorded a best of 2.14m (7-00.25) to move into a tie for fifth on the all-time Sun Devil high jump list and become the seventh different ASU man to clear 7-feet in competition.
