(Des Moines, Iowa) Cornerstone freshman, Deon Fox completed the first day of the USA Track & Field Junior National Championships in thirteenth place, setting three personal bests in the five events.

Conditions at Drake Stadium were ideal. With temperatures in the low 80's and a pleasant breeze, Fox started the competition running 11.63 in the 100 meters. A personal best, the time was worth 725 points putting Fox seventeenth in the field of 23 competitors.

In the long jump, Fox leaped a PR 21' 4 ¾" for 702 points, then sent the 6 kilogram shot put 38' 6" adding 589 points.

The high jump kept the athletes sitting on the infield for nearly two hours. Fox cleared 6' 1 ½" for 687 points. "The officials did a good job of keeping us relaxed. It was easier to be calm and enjoy the day than it was at NAIA Nationals, even though this is a US championship meet in a big stadium."

Deon added another PR running 53.21 in the 400 meters, ending the day with 3375 points in thirteenth place.

Competition resumes Thursday with the remaining five events.
