NEW YORK -- University of Texas junior Andra Manson (Brenham, Texas) topped 2.20 meters in the high jump to capture the event Saturday at the New Balance Collegiate Invitational at The Armory.
Manson has won the event at the New Balance Collegiate Invitational in each of his three seasons at Texas and owns the meet record. Manson collected an NCAA provisional mark with his first-place leap, although he has automatically qualified for the NCAA Championships. UT freshman Raymond Harris (Nacogdoches, Texas) placed sixth with a leap of 2.07 meters, as did sophomore Joel Hargett (Conroe, Texas).
Distance newcomer Dylan Wykes excelled in his first meet as a Longhorn, earning an NCAA provisional mark and personal best in the mile with a time of 4:02.96. Senior Brian Robison (Splendora, Texas) registered a personal best in the weight throw with a toss of 17.91 meters. Sophomore John Rouse (Kaufman, Texas) took ninth with a throw of 17.22 meters.
Sophomore Joseph Davis (San Antonio, Texas) and freshman Elliot O'Hare (Austin, Texas) added the remaining top-10 marks for Texas with fifth and ninth-place finishes, respectively, in the triple jump.
Texas will send members of its squad to two events - the Tyson Invitational in Fayetteville, Ark., and the Husky Invitational in Seattle - next Friday and Saturday, Feb. 10-11.
