  • Saluki track and field scored five All-MVC performers at Day One of the Missouri Valley Conference Outdoor Championships on Friday, including a record-shattering win by J.C. Lambert in the hammer throw.
    Lambert broke his own all-time MVC hammer throw record set earlier this year and set a new MVC Outdoor Championship record with a winning throw of 67.22m (220-06), eight feet better than second place. The title is Lambert's third career MVC hammer throw crown -- the third student-athlete in MVC history to win the event three times. Lambert now has seven career MVC individual championships to his name, the other four coming during the indoor season.
