—Sycamores honored — Indiana State student-athletes Elias Foor and Rachel Mehringer earned MVC weekly honors following record-setting showings at the Gibson Invitational, according to an announcement Thursday from the conference office.

Foor was named the MVC Men's Field Athlete of the Week for the third time this season, while Mehringer was tabbed the MVC Women's Track Athlete of the Week.

Foor was the top collegiate athlete in two of the three events he competed in. His top mark of 62.16m (203-11) in the invitational section of the hammer throw moved him up to fourth in program history in the event, and he also added a first-place finish in the discus with a mark of 56.81m (186-5). Foor also placed seventh in the javelin, an event he hadn't competed in since last season prior to the weekend, finishing with a top throw of 50.24m (164-10).

Mehringer shattered Indiana State's school record in the 100 meter hurdles as part of a standout weekend at the Gibson Invitational. Competing at the Gibson Track and Field Complex for the first time as a Sycamore, Mehringer ran a wind-legal time of 13.38 in cold conditions to set the school record in just her fifth outdoor collegiate meet. Mehringer's time beat the previous school record, which had stood for a decade, by one-tenth of a second. She also clocked a 200-meter dash time of 25.32, her second-fastest in the event in her career.
