Kate Hall got off to a tremendous start at the NCAA D1 Indoor Track & Field Championship as she clocked a personal best 7.17 in the 60m trials as she qualified for the finals. Her time was the third fastest overall in the semifinals. That mark broke her own school record of 7.22 that she set in the SEC Championship meet.

On her second attempt she extended her best to 21-11 1/2, before leaping a new indoor personal best 22-1 on her third attempt. Hall lead a historic 1-2-3 sweep in the long jump with her teammates Keturah Orji (2nd) & Tara Davis (3rd) to secure 24 points for Georgia who leads the competition after day 1 with 33 points.

In the men's 800m prelims Lewiston native Isaiah Harris qualified for tomorrow's final as he won section 1 in a time of 1:47.87.
