Western Kentucky wrapped up its indoor track and field regular-season slate Saturday at Vanderbilt’s Music City Challenge in Nashville. The program recorded eight top-10 performances.

Annastacia Forrester earned a pair of top-six finishes across the two-day outing.

Forrester picked up a fourth-place finish in the long jump, clearing 6.08 meters. The mark was a season-best for the freshman and WKU’s top jump of the season.

In the high jump, Forrester earned a sixth-place finish with a jump of 1.71 meters.

In the women’s triple jump, Myesha Nott finished sixth after covering 12.38 meters.

Getter Lemberg cleared a WKU season-best height of 3.73 meters to finish tied for 17th in the pole vault. The mark is a indoor personal best for the senior.

On the men’s side, Oliver Alexandre finished third in the 400-meter dash with a time of 47.03 – an indoor personal best for the senior. The mark is also the fastest time of the indoor season for the Hilltoppers.

Austin Hayes clocked a 21.74 200-meter dash time to finish fourth.

In the 60-meter race, Josh Davis registered a 6.85 time to finish fifth in the prelims and earn a spot in the event finals.

WKU’s final two top-10 showings came in the men’s relays.
