The No. 6-ranked Ashland University men's and women's indoor track and field teams continued to pile up nationals-caliber marks on Friday (Jan. 20) at the Youngstown State College Invitational.

Sophomore Myles Pringle turned in a provisional time in the men's 200-meter dash, placing second in 21.52 seconds. It is the third event Pringle has earned at least provisional entry to nationals in this winter, along with the high jump and the 400 dash (both automatics).

Senior Marlecia Holston earned a new provisional mark in the women's long jump with a top effort of 5.60 meters/18-feet-4½, good for second place. Both sophomore Devin Snowden (second, 8.09) and freshman Arthur Greenlee IV (third, 8.19) each turned in new provisional times in the men's 60 hurdles.

Snowden earned an individual title on Friday in the men's long jump (7.02 meters/23-feet-0½), while taking runner-up finishes were Pringle in the men's high jump (2.05 meters/6-feet-8¾), sophomore Tyler Sievert in the men's 800 run (1:53.77) and sophomore Brandon Wilson in the men's 60 dash (6.92).

Finishing in third place in their respective events were redshirt freshman Steven Kapes in the men's 5,000 run (14:55.74, a new program freshman indoor record), junior Haley Gregory in the women's 60 hurdles (8.90), sophomore Jacob Sprague in the men's pole vault (4.55 meters/14-feet-11) and the men's 4x4 relay team of Snowden, freshman Paul Murray, Pringle and junior Ryan VanCauwenbergh (3:18.46).
