Press Release MSSU:


The Missouri Southern men's and women's track and field programs will play host to the MSSU Lion Open on Mercy Track inside the Leggett & Platt Athletic Center Friday and Saturday.

The Lions men are ranked 20th nationally going into the event. Jeff Fraley just recently improved his national standing in the 60m dash and currently ranks third in the event, while ranking second nationally in the 400m. Morgan Hold ranks 13th in the pole vault, while Darion Boure and Kennan Harrison rank 8th and 17th, respectively in the triple jump. 

Emily Harris ranks fifth nationally in the mile after her performance at Kansas this past weekend. Harris was just a little over a second off the MSSU school record in the event and her time stands as the second-best ever in the indoor mile in MSSU history.
