Feb. 16, 2008
Vaalyn Jackson made his season debut a good one as he won the weight event and also set a McNeese State school record during the Houston all-comers indoor track and field meet here Saturday.
The Cowboy junior threw the weight 55-0 1/4 to break the school record of 54-5 1/4 that had been set earlier in the season by John Jamail.
Jackson also finished fourth in the shot put with a throw of 48-7 1/2.
Also in the weight throw, Freddie Hannie went 54-1 1/4 for third place and Jacob Domingue finished eighth at 48-0.
These were the only five McNeese athletes to compete in the meet.
Next week all of the Cowboys and Cowgirls will take part in the Southland Conference championship in Houston.
