“Great first meet,” UNM head coach Joe Franklin said. “It obviously showed that the kids trained over break. We had a long, five-week vacation and some kids just got back, and obviously performed well.”
“There were lots of great performances today.”
Jones, whose 6.68-second time in the 60 is a hundredth of a second off of a school record, was one of those great performances and led 13 men with top-10 finishes. He finished second overall in the event.

For the women, Turner notched two record-book performances at the Albuquerque Convention Center, as she moved to third all-time in the long jump and 10th all-time in the 200.

The women’s 800 was also a source of strong times, as Charlotte Arter (second, 2:10.05) and Chloe Anderson (third, 2:10.05) recorded the second and third-fastest times, respectively, in school history.
Elsewhere on the track, Peri Moran battled to eighth all-time in the 60 with her fifth place time of 7.72, while Fisher-Taylor (7.76) finished sixth.
