Sophomore Shaneil Fairclough was Liberty's lone event champion on a cold, rainy Saturday at the Highlander Invitational at Cupp Stadium, taking home top honors in the women's 100-meter dash final.

The inclement weather hampered performances throughout the day and resulted in the men's triple jump and all relay races being scrapped altogether.

Freshman Olivia Behymer crossed the line as the women's 400 runner-up in 58.42 seconds. Corinn Bedell followed in 58.71, placing fourth.

Audrey Bamford finished fourth in the 100 hurdles, posting a time of 15.51.

Holly Arey competed in all four women's throwing events during the two-day meet. On Saturday, the freshman came in eighth in the shot put (37-4) and 10th in the hammer (144-9).

Men's Day Two Recap
Freshman Levi Mack was the Liberty men's squad's top finisher on Saturday, coming in second at 400 meters with a time of 51.20.

Trevor VanAsselt posted a fifth-place finish in the men's hammer (162-2) and heaved the discus 130-1 for eighth place.

Decathlete Tevan McIntire threw the shot put 36-9 to garner eighth place.

Blake Kohring qualified for the men's 110 hurdles final with a time of 16.19 seconds, but then chose to forego the final.
