Her performance Friday only solidified her credentials as elite.

Bryant dealt beautifully with having to navigate three rounds of 60m heats at the nation's deepest meet for sprinters this weekend: the Arkansas Tyson Invitational. She won the championship final in a scorching fast 7.16 seconds, which is fastest in the nation this season.

Harrison's top time of 7.96 still ranks No. 1 in the country this season with Stowers and McCreynolds ranked Nos. 2 and 3 respectively.

Rebecca Famurewa produced a 2-foot-2-inch/.062m weight throw PR mark of
19.42m/63'8¾" to finish sixth.

Kayla Parker entered a long jump competition for the first time this season and broke 6m and 20-feet for the first time with a third-place mark of 6.1m/20'0.25". Sha'Keela Saunders placed fifth.

At the Indiana Hoosier Hills Invitational, Michelle Canterna cleared a season-best and indoor-PR 3.91m/12'10" to finish seventh in the pole vault.

Alisha Adair was second at IU in the 200m (24.69), she qualified for the 60m final earlier in the evening, a race which will be run on Saturday.

Justin Kretchmer placed third in the high jump with a top clearance of
2.04m/6'08.25", and Joanne Imbert produced a long jump PR at IU, placing fourth with a mark of 5.67m 18'07.25".
