from staff reports

   KNOXVILLE -- The Milligan men's and women's track teams didn't let a damp Sunday at UT's Tom Black Track get in the way of bright performances.
   On the final day of the 2004 Gatorade Classic, sophomores Chris Wright (8:41) and Megan Lease (10:30) led both squads with personal best marks in the 3k for men and women respectively. Both times were also new Milligan school records.
   Freshman Josh Ferry stepped down from the 800 meters to run the open 400 and also finished with a new personal best time of 50.11. Former Daniel Boone standout Allison Langrel also set a personal best and new school record in the women's 400 meter hurdles.
   Sophomore Morgan Hyatt finished third in the women's discus and Jair Collie finished 5th in his heat of the 800 meters just off his personal best set last weekend.
   Next weekend both squads will split-up to compete at Indiana, UNC, and Clemson.
