Senior Natalie Scheifele throws a javelin during the women’s javelin throw at the Alumni Muster meet on Saturday, April 30, 2022.

In the final home meet of the 2022 outdoor track & field season, the Aggies honored the graduating seniors who have competed for Texas A&M this past season. The meet saw many outstanding performances and many meet and facility records were broken. Standing above the rest was junior high jumper Lamara Distin who broke the meet record, facility record, and even improved the Jamaican national record for high jump which she already held. The Aggies will return to E.B. Cushing stadium for the 2023 outdoor track and field season.
