Sterling Scott

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The University of Missouri track and field wrapped up the SEC Indoor Track and Field Championships with four Tigers earning points as top-eight finishers on the day.

Sterling Scott was the only Tiger to claim a podium placement on the weekend, placing third in the triple jump to earn All-SEC Second Team honors. His mark of 16.14m (52-11.5) is the third-best in program history. The result is the top freshman jump in the country this season and the ninth-best jump in the NCAA, putting Scott in a prime position to qualify for the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships.

Kelsey Schweizer crossed the line fifth in the women’s 800-meter with a time of 2:06.20, marking her second career top-five finish at the SEC Indoor Championships and first since taking a silver-medal finish in the DMR in 2020.

A pair of Tigers finished seventh in their respective events as Alicia Burnett clocked a 7.28 in the women’s 60-meter and Claudina Diaz posted a 1.80m (5-10 3/4) mark in the women’s high jump.

Mizzou finished 13th in the men’s team results (10) and 14th in the women’s team results (9.5).


Missouri closes out the 2024 indoor season at the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championships on March 8-9 in Boston, Mass. Coverage from The Track at New Balance can be found on the ESPN family of networks all weekend long.
