Alexis_JacobsWinston-Salem, N.C.  – Junior Alexis Jacobs led the USC Upstate track and field team for the second straight day as the Spartans wrapped up competition at the Hilton Garden Invitational Saturday inside the JDL Fast Track.

Jacobs continues her impressive start at Upstate by breaking another of her school indoor records for the second consecutive day. She set a new school record, and personal-best, in the weight throw with her mark of 15.93-meters (52-03.25) to place sixth in the event. Jacobs eclipsed her own school record Friday in the shot put where she also finished sixth.

The Spartans are slated to compete next weekend (Feb. 7-8) at the Mountaineer Open hosted by Appalachian State.
