Georgia sophomore Kyle Garland enters the NCAA DI Indoor Championships as the No. 1 ranked athlete in the field after posting an American 2021 best mark of 6,012 points when winning the SEC Indoor Championships in February.
Leo Neugebauer of Texas, Arkansas’ Markus Ballengee, Ayden Owens of Michigan, Peyton Haack of Iowa, and Oregon’s Max Vollmer are expected to be among the highlighted challengers to Garland in the battle for the podium spots.
The collegiate and meeting Heptathlon record is held by former Oregon star Ashton Eaton, who tallied 6,499 points in 2010.
Will Garland get close to that mark? We just have to wait and see.
Tyra Gittens of Texas A&M will take the No. 1 ranking spot into the women’s pentathlon, and she will be hoping to bounce back from the disappointing finish at the SEC Indoor Championships.
The Trinidad and Tobago national record holder heads into the championships with a personal tally of 4,612 points, done in Lubbock, Texas, in January.
Anna Hall of Georgia is ranked No. 2, Texas freshman Kristine Blazevica is No. 3, while Erin Marsh of Duke and Mathilde Rey of Oregon are ranked No. 4 and No. 5 respectively in the event.
