Warrensburg, Mo. -- Missouri Southern freshman sprinter Jeff Fraley set a new school record in the 60m, while the Lions won four events at the Central Missouri Classic today in Warrensburg. 

Fraley was tops in the prelims of the 60m with a time of 6.80, besting the previous record of 6.85 set by Jordan Patton in 2010. Fraley did not run in the finals of the event, however.

Jacob Rowe won the triple jump with a distance of 44-11.50, while Seth Hackney won the shot put with a provisional distance of 54-11.25 and Dustin Green was third with a provisional distance of 53-00.25. Green was also eighth in the weight throw with a distance of 46-02.00.

Anthony Price was second in the 200m with a time of 22.73, while Blake Arehart placed 11th in the event. Tanksley and Dustin Rooffener placed second and tenth in the 400m. Sam Pouge and D'Andre McKenzie were 6th and 7th in the 600y, while Taylor Kramer placed 11th. Jake Benton and Andrew Webb placed 6th and 14th in the 3k. 

The Lions will be back in action next weekend as Southern plays host to the 2012 MIAA Indoor Track and Field Championships in the Leggett & Platt Athletic Center.
