Saturday, April 23, 2011 | 7:21 p.m. CDT

In their first outdoor dual meet since 2009, both the Missouri men's and women's track and field teams lost to Georgia on Saturday in Athens, Ga. The men lost 111-81, while the women lost 121-80.

Despite the loss, several Tigers had strong performances. Senior Chris Davis, a Georgia native, won the 400-meter hurdles in 51.90, a personal best.

The women were led by sophomore Laura Roxberg, who won the 1,500-meter run in 4:25.48, also a personal best. Her time ranks in the top 10 in the Big 12 this season.

Three sophomores won field events for Missouri. For the men, Tucker Bounds won the long jump with a jump of 7.06 meters (23-02), and Brooks Mosier won the shot put with a throw of 15.93 meters (52-03¼). On the women's side, Megan Collins won the discus with a throw of 49.21 meters (161-05).

Missouri's next meet is at the Drake Relays, to be held Thursday through Saturday in Des Moines, Iowa.
