UK Throwers Fryman, Muffet and Varga Set Personal-Bests
In the field of 37 throwers, Fryman produced the top collegiate mark and third place finish with a new personal-best of 63-4.25 (fourth all-time UK). As of Saturday evening, Fryman?s toss ranked fifth nationally and was the top mark in the SEC this season. The third-year thrower also finished 11th in the hammer throw with a mark of 182-4, just short of his personal-best of 183-2 set at the Yellow Jacket Invitational (4/1). For the season, Fryman owns regional qualifying marks in the shot put, hammer and discus.
Muffet continued her breakthrough freshman campaign with a new PR throw of 53-1.50 in the shot put. Muffet?s toss ranks second all-time at Kentucky behind school record holder Cindy Crapper (53-7.50) and second in the conference. In the hammer throw, Muffet posted another new personal record with a toss of 186-6, falling just shy of recent UK grad Gennessa Guzman school record mark of 187-1. Like Fryman, Muffet owns regional marks in the shot put, hammer and discus.
Senior Ildiko Varga set a PR in the hammer throw with a regional qualifying mark of 178-8 (fifth all-time UK), giving UK three qualifiers in the event. Varga also finished eighth in the discus (173-9). Varga?s personal-best remains 185-10 in the discus (UK school record), set last week at the Mesa Classic. Senior Nicole Allyn reached a seasonal-best in the hammer with a throw of 182-3 ? two inches short of a PR.
Next weekend, the Kentucky runners will get back in full swing and travel to nationally prestigious Penn Relays (April 27-29) in Philadelphia.
