When Maryland track and field participated in the Rod McCravy Invitational in Lexington, Kentucky this weekend, junior Caleb Dean broke the program’s record in the 60m dash while graduate student Angel Nkwonta broke Maryland’s record in the women’s weight throw.

Dean’s time of 6.68s moved him into the No. 1 spot in the record books.

The junior happened to break the record he tied for the event just one day before with a time of 6.73s in the 60m dash. Dean’s personal best in the event prior to this weekend was set in February 2020 at the Frank Sevigne Husker Invite. His previous time for the 60m was 6.95s.

Nkwonta set her record on Saturday with a distance of 21.69m in the weight throw, breaking her previous program record.

Track and field will be back in action Friday, Feb. 4 and Saturday, Feb. 5 at the Dr. Sanders Invite at the New York Armory.
