Reagan wins pair of events for Southern

PITTSBURG, Kan. — Jumper Brittani Reagan won two events for Missouri Southern on Saturday in the Pittsburg State Wendy’s Open on Prentice Gudgen Track inside Carnie Smith Stadium.

Reagan, a sophomore, swept the long jump (18 feet, 53⁄4 inches) and the triple jump (38-81⁄4).

Missouri Southern’s women also picked up two firsts on the track as Amber White won the 400 meters (56.37 seconds) and Kindra Emberton prevailed in the 800 (2:13.10).

The Lions had second-place finishes by Kylie Cornman in the shot put, Emily Harris in the 1,500, Sydney Potts in the 400, White in the 200 and Dana Robertson took third in the 800. Fourth places went to Ashleigh McFarland (pole vault), Whitney Hardy (high jump), Kaylee Morgan (long jump) and Shelby Newell (triple jump).

In the men’s division, Missouri Southern’s Brady Melugin won the pole vault at 16-51⁄2 — a provisional mark — and Alex Mason won the 3,000 steeplechase in 9:41.44. Teammate Raymond Woldtvedt was fourth in the pole vault but cleared 15-93⁄4, also good for a provisional.

Second-place finishers for the Lions were Tylor Albright (long jump), Darion Boure (triple jump), Colton Wooldridge (3,000 steeplechase), William Rush (1,500) and Ryan Jackson (5,000). Third places went to Clark Tanksley (high jump), Nicklas Pollizzi (discus) and Miles Migliara (800), and fourth-place finishers in addition to Woldtvedt were Boure (long jump), Nathan Henry (3,000 steeplechase) and Jazz Allen (110 high hurdles).

“The way we stand right now, it looks like our middle distance and distance guys are in great position,” Lions coach Bryan Schiding said.

“Our pole vaulters did very well. I had Brady pass on the high 16s and put the bar at 17-2. I want him to get used to seeing a higher bar. He missed but had some good attempts at it.”
