Rogers Finishes Second in 60-meters at Gorilla Classic

PITTSBURG, Kan. – Freshman Olivia Rogers led the Bears’ track and field team to three top-three finishes on the second day of the Gorilla Classic hosted by Pittsburg State.
 
Rogers finished the day with a second-place finish in the finals of the 60-meter dash. The Dearborn, Mo. native finished the race with a time of 7.57, only .18 behind the first-place finisher. Rogers also finished third in the preliminary round with a time of 7.63. Both results beat Rogers’ previous personal best of 7.66.
 
Rogers is the first Bear this season to make an appearance in the finals for any event.

MoState had an additional 15 new personal records for the Bears.
 
“This was a strong meet overall for the team,” assistant coach Taryn Smiley said. “We saw some breakthroughs that we knew were there, and we feel we are in good shape heading into these next two weeks before conference.”
 
The Bears will compete in the Arkansas Qualifier on Friday, Feb. 16 in Fayetteville, Ark. in their final meet before racing for a conference title.
