📈 STOCK UP
🔼 For The Record. Shocker track and field had a successful weekend at the Mark Colligan Memorial after jumper Brady Palen and hurdler Jaleel Montgomery helped the men’s team to a second-place finish. Palen cleared a season-best 2.15m in the high jump to win the event and move up to 21st in the NCAA. On the track, Montgomery recorded back-to-back personal bests in the 60m hurdles and clocked a 7.79 to win the event. The time also moved him up to third all-time in Shocker history and moved up to 22nd in the NCAA.
The women’s team had a strong showing and finished in third place with the help of freshman hurdler Kate Campos who placed second in the 60m hurdles with the fourth fastest time in school history.
🔼 Home of the Hurricanes. Out on the road, Shocker women’s basketball could not secure the victory over Tulsa and fell 93-70 on Saturday afternoon. Daniela Abies led the Shockers with her fourth double-double of the season, tallying 17 points and 10 rebounds, while Tre'Zure Jobe (16), Salese Blow (12) and Aniya Bell (10) also finished in double figures. The Shockers won the fourth-quarter battle, but it was too little, too late, as Tulsa came away with the win.
Up next, the Shockers will return to The Roundhouse for two straight home games against UAB and Florida Atlantic on Thursday, Jan. 25 and Saturday, Jan. 27.
🔼 Take Care. The Shocker women's tennis team collected their second win in as many days with a confident 5-2 victory over the Drake Bulldogs on Sunday afternoon. With the win, the Black and Gold improved to 2-1 on the season.
🗣️ "In singles, we are competing with great togetherness, which is difficult in an individual sport. We'll continue to build off these results." - head coach Colin Foster
Kristina Kudryavtseva and Anne Knuettel clinched the doubles point to put the Shockers up 1-0. In singles play, Knuettel picked up another win along with Giorgia Roselli, Jessica Anzo and Theodora Chantava to notch a W in the win column. The Shockers will now return home for their first match at home of the season where they will face off against Kansas State on Jan. 26 at 4:00 p.m.
