 Albuquerque, N.M. – The University of Arizona Wildcat men's and women's track and field teams had four student-athletes compete in the New Mexico Classic on Friday in Albuquerque, N.M. Freshman Myles Hawkins and redshirt junior Harrison Ivie competed in the heptathlon while sophomore Alyssa Thompson posted a personal-best score in the pentathlon.

Thompson began the day with the 60-meter hurdles where she clocked a personal-best time of 8.91, good for 929 points. She followed that up with a personal-best clearance of 5-6 (1.68m) in the high jump, scoring 830 points. Thompson scored 561 points in the shot put with a toss of 34-4.75 (10.48m). In the final event, Thompson clocked a time of 2:28.57 in the 800-meter race and tallied 711 points. Overall, Thompson had a personal-best score of 3,829 and took third place.
