Morehead State Women's Track & Field freshman Dakorria Winstead set an MSU record for the 60-meter dash, timing in at 8.08 seconds at the Thundering Herd Invitational Saturday afternoon.

The Owensboro native's performance surpassed her performance the week previous at the Marshall Women's Classic, where she also set a then-best school record (8.22 seconds) in the same event, alongside junior Maya Andrews, who clocked in with an identical pace.

Joining Winstead in the vain of top-10's this weekend was junior Caitlin Cunningham, who ran in the 5000-meter dash, placing fourth and came in with a time of 17:43.97.

Fellow freshman Alyssa Coleman paced the Eagles with a 26.24 in the 200-meter dash, placing ninth overall.

Morehead State returns to the indoor track in Huntington on February 8th& 9th, participating in the Marshall Invitational.
