San Antonio/La Jolla, California - The Trinity men's and women's track & field teams opened competition at the University of the Incarnate Word Invitational and the University of California-San Diego Triton Invitational on Friday.
Stella Affognon was Trinity's lone competitor during Friday's action at the Triton Invitational, finishing less than one meter from her own school record with a throw of 40.81 meters in the discus.
The rest of today's standouts competed at the UIW Meet - some of which was hosted by Trinity.
First-year Simon Jernigan was the top Division III finisher in the 1,500 meter race in a time of 4:36.89.
Stephen Ford surpassed his personal record in the shot put with a mark of 11.37 meters, as well as set a new personal best with his mark of 33.97 meters in the hammer throw.
Jaelen Harris finished just 0.30 meters from his personal best in the long jump with a mark of 5.56 meters.
The Tiger women were outstanding in the 1,500 meters, finishing second through seventh. Trinity was led by Molly McCullough's team season-best time of 4:48.35 that was good enough for second amound Division III runners.
