Commodores head to SEC Championships in Fayetteville

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — After a shortened indoor season with several record-setting performances, Vanderbilt women’s track and field team heads to the SEC Championships at the Randal Tyson Indoor Track Center in Fayetteville, Arkansas, this weekend.

Competition begins Thursday with the pentathlon at 10:15 a.m. followed by the distance medley relay at 2:30 p.m. The women’s meet resumes 5:30 p.m. Friday with the high jump and semifinals of the mile at 7 p.m. The second day concludes with the 200-meter prelims at 8:35 p.m. The final day of competition begins on the track at 6 p.m. and will finish with the 4×400 relay at 7:20 p.m.

The meet will be shown on SEC Network+. A full viewing schedule is below.

In three regular season meets, the Commodores set a pair of school records in the 60 meters and, in all, have made 14 new additions to the school record book in nine different events.

Most recently, at the Music City Challenge, sophomore Madison Fuller set the school record in the 60 meters and won the 200 meters with the second-fastest finish in program history. Junior Taiya Shelby also moved into second place in the school record book with a blazing finish in the 400 meters while freshman Haley Bishop and sophomore Kaira Brown etched their names into Vanderbilt’s history as well.

Last year at the SEC Championships, Lauren Moffett made the finals of the mile and finished sixth while Grace Jensen posted the ninth-best finish in the 3,000 meters in school history. Jada Sims moved into sixth at Vanderbilt in the pentathlon and the 4×400-meter relay finished in 3:44.14 to slide into 10th place in the program’s record book.

The NCAA Indoor Championships are set for March 12-13 in the same building as the SEC Championships.
