Clarksville, TN – The Austin Peay State University (APSU) track and field team opens its outdoor season at the Margaret Simmons Invite, Saturday, at Roy Stewart Stadium in Murray Kentucky.
Austin Peay State University finished its eight-meet indoor season with a fourth-place finish at the ASUN Championships, on February 25th, following a quintet of Governors earning ASUN titles.
The ASUN Conference’s Most Outstanding Freshman, Amani Sharif took first in five meets last season, including an ASUN-best 6.22-meter long jump in just her second-career meet, on January 7th.
Senior Kenisha Phillips also looks to build on a record-breaking indoor season that saw the Georgetown, Guyana native earn a total of nine event victories, including four in the ASUN Championships. Phillips currently owns each of the top 10 fastest 200-meter dashes in APSU’s outdoor history and four of the top eight 400-meter dashes including the program-record that she set at the Ohio Valley Conference Championship last season.
The ASUN Champion in the pole vault, Karlijn Schouten enters her the second half of her senior season with four of the top eight marks in outdoor history. Schouten set the indoor record with a 4.21-meter leap in February’s championships. Her current outdoor best is 4.12 meters – 0.05 meters off Savannah Amato’s program mark.
