Oklahoma Baptist senior Jura Levy turned in the NAIA's No. 2 time – a U.S. Top 10 at all college levels this season – in the 60 meters at the University of Arkansas' Tyson Invitational.

In a field of 61, mostly NCAA Division I athletes, Levy reached the finals where she finished second at 7.25 seconds. She finished ahead of runners from Louisiana State and Oregon in the finals and blew away competitors from Auburn, Texas Tech, Texas, South Carolina, Florida State and Oklahoma in the semis.

Also at the Tyson Invitational, Stacy Warrior ran the 400 meters in 56.55 seconds. That's a qualifying mark, but Warrior has done better this season as the NAIA's top-ranked athlete in the event.

Adam Godwin turned in a 4:08.90 in the mile, which bumped him up to No. 2 in the NAIA.
