A pair of Missouri Tigers track and field athletes, senior pole vaulter Brian Hancock and sophomore shot putter Corey Jones, remain ranked in the top 25 of their respective events.

Hancock checks in with the No. 8 spot in the pole vault rankings, while Jones stands at No. 23 in the shot put rankings.

Hancock cleared a height of 5.25 meters (17-2 3/4) this weekend at the Adidas Classic in Lincoln, Neb., winning the event.

Jones set a personal-best mark in the shot put over the weekend with a throw of 17.66 meters (57-11 1/4).

The Tigers will return to action in Ames, Iowa, this weekend at the Bill Bergan Invitational.
