The opening weekend of collegiate indoor track and field elicited two American Junior bests, a collegiate record, and a pair of noteworthy weight throws.

 

Nastassja Campbell of Stephen F. Austin broke the indoor American Junior record for the pole vault with a 4.39m/14-4.75 clearance at Texas A&M’s Ted Nelson Invitational. Campbell added four centimeters to the previous record, set in 2009 by Nebraska’s Natalie Willer.

 

— Virginia Tech freshman Jacory Patterson set an indoor American Junior best for 300m at the VT Invitational with a 32.49. The previous best was 32.84, set last year by Georgia high schooler Brian Herron.

 

Danae Rivers clocked 2:38.58 for 1,000m to set a collegiate record and give Penn State possession of the men’s and women’s CRs. Her time clipped more than two seconds off the previous record of 2:40.79 by Oklahoma State’s Kaela Edwards in 2017.

 

Trey Knight of Ridgefield (Washington) High School had the best-ever 35-pound weight throw by a prep athlete, placing second at the UW Preview in Seattle with a 20.72m/67-11.75 toss.

 

Payton Otterdahl of North Dakota State, the 2015 Pan Am Junior champion in the discus for Team USATF, moved to ninth on the all-time U.S. collegiate 35-pound weight throw list with a 23.68m/77-8.25 throw at the Thundering Herd Classic in Fargo.
