After earning the Southland Conference Track & Field Athlete of the Week Sakari Famous broke her own school Women's High Jump Record and 34-year-old Ralph O. Ward Record on the second and final day of the McNeese Indoor II Track & Field meet.
The performances highlighted a day that saw 15 McNeese personal records broken along with 17 first place finishes.
Famous, who broke the school record while winning a Gold Medal at the 2022 Southland Conference Indoor Championships, matched that mark of 5-10.75 at this year's season opener at the LSU Purple Tiger two weeks ago.
Famous clearing of 5-11.25 on Friday breaks the old record of 5-8.75 set by Lamar in 1990, ranks tied as the 5th-best mark in Southland Conference history and 21st-best in the nation this season.
