Rece Rowan

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — University of Missouri closed out the weekend with a pair of event wins and two program top-10 marks at the Florida Relays hosted by Florida in Gainesville, Florida. In total, the Tigers earned seven top-five finishes throughout the day.

Rece Rowan started the day strong for Mizzou in the men’s discus throw competition, winning the event with a 54.08m toss. Later in the day, he earned another top-five finish in the men’s shot put, placing fifth with a 16.41m throw.

Emily Offenheiser pulled off the double feat of winning the women’s shot put and earning a spot on the program’s top-10 list in that event. With her winning throw of 15.75m, she vaulted herself into the record books with the ninth-best women’s outdoor shot put in Mizzou history.

Another program top-10 mark came in the men’s triple jump, where Sterling Scott made his collegiate outdoor debut with a 15.64m leap to place eighth all-time. The mark tied for sixth in the competition and puts the freshman All-American comfortably among the top-25 marks in the nation.

Other top finishers included Skylar Coffey, who picked up two podium finishes on the day by finishing runner-up in the men’s shot put with a 17.70m mark and third place in the men’s discus with a 53.43m throw. Jumper Claudina Diaz made her outdoor debut in the high jump, earning a bronze-medal placement with a 1.79m attempt. 

Mitch Weber also put in another strong showing in the men’s discus throw invite, placing fourth in a stacked field with a 59.71m mark that maintains his spot among the top-10 men’s discus throwers in the country.


After a week off, the Tigers will travel to southern California on April 12 and 13 to compete in the Bryan Clay Invitational, hosted by Azusa Pacific in Azusa, California, and the Beach Invitational, hosted by Long Beach State in Long Beach, California.
