Submitted

MANHATTAN, Kan. — Nick Miller launched a new personal record in the hammer throw, breaking a meet record, and his own school record, and Chase Ealey won the women's shot put for the Oklahoma State track and field teams at the Ward Haylett Invite, in Manhattan, Kan., on Saturday.

Miller's throw of 70.57m/231-06 broke the meet record, his own school record, won the event and keeps him at No. 2 in the NCAA. All four marks that Miller registered would have won the event.

In the women's shot put, Chase Ealey came away with the win, throwing the shot 15.78m/51-9.25.

"Nick is hitting a nice groove right now in practice and he is reaping the rewards in competition," OSU throws coach John Baumann said. "Chase launched one that was a foul today, but she was still able to win, and her throws today were really good after a good week of practice."
