Starkville, Miss. - Top finishes were plentiful on the plains as Mississippi State wrapped action at the War Eagle Invitational with a total of 17 Top 5 finishes, including two victories.

"We competed against some tough competition today," coach Steve Dudley said. "We gave a great effort and I am proud of the outcome we received."

Ed Wesela and Jarrett Samuels were the two victorious Bulldogs, with Wesela's coming in the discus throw (168-05) and Samuels' putting up the winning length of 24-11.75 in the long jump.

Wesela (54-10.75) then picked up a Top 5 finish in the shot put where he finished second. Claiming the next Top 5 finish was John Bourgeouis who took fifth in the pole vault (15-07). Bourgeouis was followed by fellow field athlete Jason Harper who jumped 50-10.75 to place second in the triple jump. Bobby McIllece (9:42.68) and Nathan Arnett (14.14) then placed third in the 3000-meter steeplechase and 110-meter hurdles respectively.

A sprinter, a hurdler and a distance athlete completed the Top 5 finishes as James Harris (46.31) was second in the 400-meter dash, Emanuel Mayers posted the second place time of 51.01 in the 400-meter hurdles and Julian Duarte (15:26.50) was fourth in the 5000-meter run.

Favian Cowards (192-06) was first out of the gate for the Lady Bulldogs as she finished third in the hammer throw. Katie Huston then ran 4:31.46 to finish fourth in the 1500-meter invitational, followed by Keisha Wallace (13.27) who took third in the 100-meter hurdles. Megan Rayford came up next as she took fourth in the discus with a throw of 143-04, while Jody-Ann Muir was second in the 400-meter dash with a time of 52.89.

A pair of long jumpers rounded out the Maroon and White Top 5's as Erica Bougard (19-10.75) and Rochelle Farquharson (19-08.75) finished back to back at third and fourth respectively.
