COLUMBIA — The Missouri track and field team recorded seven marks that made the school's top-10 record books this week, including a Missouri school record by Kearsten Peoples in the discus throw.

The throw of 57.31 meters came on Wednesday in the Emporia State Midweek Open. The old school record of 55.60 meters was set by Peoples in 2012.

The Emporia meet was one of four the Tigers competed in this week.

The Drake Relays, Penn Relays and Triton Invitational took place Friday and Saturday.

At Drake, junior Mitch Hatten hit a personal record in the high jump Saturday. He placed 10th in the field with a top bar of 2.08 meters.

In Pennsylvania, sophomore Tony Carodine finished fourth in the men's triple jump with a best jump of 15.64 meters. The jump moved Carodine up into the No. 5 spot on the school's top-10 list.  Teammate Jonathan Ilori came in fifth in the same event.

Also in Pennsylvania, Missouri sophomore Markesh Woodson ran for the first time this outdoor season. Woodson tweaked his left hamstring during the 200-meter dash at the Southeastern Conference Indoor Championships on Feb. 28.

At the Triton Invitational in San Diego, senior Katie Evans' personal record in the shot put of 15.41 meters was good enough for eight place.
