LAFAYETTE, La. – Junior thrower Adonson Shallow improved on
his school record in the hammer throw, senior jumper Roseann Bell
recorded the third-best performance in school history to win the
long jump, and junior jumper Corey Billizone hit an NCAA Regional
Qualifying standard en route to a first place finish in the high jump
as the Southeastern Louisiana University men’s and women’s track
and field teams turned in a bevy of impressive performances at the
Louisiana Classics on Saturday. ...

Leading the way for Southeastern, Shallow continued his dominant
performance in the throws events. The Kingston, St. Vincent and
the Grenadines native improved on the school hammer throw
record he set last week with a first-place throw of 202 ft. 8 in.
(61.77 m) for the first 200 foot hammer throw mark in
Southeastern history.

Shallow was joined in the hammer throw by junior Chris Labat, who
finished fourth, and senior Kyle Francis, who finished fifth, to give
Southeastern three top-five finishers in the hammer.

Shallow then went on to claim first place in the discus. Shallow’s
179 ft. 5 in. (54.69 m) mark in the discus was the third-best throw
in school history.
