FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - Junior Clayton Vaughn finished ninth in the 200-meter dash with a time of 21.31, completing his stay at the Tyson Invitational hosted by Arkansas. His time was the seventh fastest among the collegians at the meet.
The 21.31 is the third-fastest time in the Western Athletic Conference this season and is listed among the top 40 nationally. In addition, it was a personal record and ranks as the fifth fastest in school annals despite it being Vaughn's first 200m race of the year.
"Clayton ran very well, and we are expecting the times to drop even more as we look forward to the WAC Indoor Championships," assistant coach Jordan Durham said. "We are very satisfied with how the weekend went."
In addition, according to updated NCAA statistics, Vaughn's Friday 60m time of 6.63 is currently tied for the fifth-fastest in the nation this season.
