Senior Egor Agafonov (weight throw), senior Kate Sultanova (pole vault) and junior Nickesha Anderson (60-meter dash, 200-meter dash) won their events for the Jayhawks.

Agafonov, the defending NCAA weight-throw champion, won the event with a NCAA provisional mark of 21.24 meters.

Sultanova automatically qualified for the March 14-15 NCAA Indoor Championships in Fayetteville, Ark., with her mark of 4.20 meters in the pole vault.

Anderson broke her own KU record in the 200 meters with a time of 23.75 seconds. She matched her school-record of 7.38 seconds in the 60 meters.

KU returns to action Friday in New York at the New Balance Collegiate Invitational.
