    The Stanford men's and women's track and field teams competed in day one of the Tyson Invitational Friday in Fayetteville, Ark. The Cardinal sent a limited squad to compete in sprinting and field events against a deep field of competition.

    Arantxa King highlighted the day for Stanford by achieving her collegiate best in the long jump of 20-10 3/4. King had already established a national automatic qualifying jump two weeks ago and entered the meet ranked tied for fourth nationally in the long jump.

    Also achieving a collegiate best for the Cardinal was Shataya Hendricks who ran a time of 7.55 seconds in the 60 meter dash.

    The 60 meter hurdles saw two Stanford athletes run season bests. Whitney Liehr ran a collegiate best time of 8.72 seconds, while Lauren Stewart ran a season best time of 8.80 seconds.

    The Stanford men achieved one season best on the day and it came in the 400 meters. Durell Coleman ran a time of 49.36 to improve his season best. Andrew Dargie led Stanford in that event with a time of 47.49 seconds.

    Stanford will have a busy day tomorrow as the Tyson Invitational wraps up in Fayetteville, Ark. At the same time several other Stanford athletes will be taking part in the Husky Invite in Seattle, Wash. Primarily middle and long distance runners traveled to Seattle to compete for the Cardinal.
