(Middlebury, VT) - Texas Lutheran senior Marquis Brown, the defending NCAA Division III indoor national champion in the 400 meters, impressively kicked off his 2018 indoor season by winning races and setting new records Saturday in both the 200 and 400 at the Middlebury Invitational.

Brown was joined at the Middlebury Invitational by TLU Women's Track & Field standouts Ashley Myers and Ashley Rynard.

Brown not only won the 200 and 400 at the Middlebury Invitational, but he set new venue records in both events.

Brown won the 200 in a time 22.27 seconds and won the 400 with a time of 49.10.

"Marquis races in two weeks at the University of Washington in both the 200 and 400 events," said Darlene Holland, TLU's head coach for men's and women's track & field. "He will be chasing a U.S. Championship qualifying time of 47.40."

The Middlebury track is a flat track, so the Bulldogs' times will be converted to banked-track times. TLU's times will improve once the conversions are made.

Myers finished third in both the 60 and the 200. Myers ran the 60 in 7.94. She completed the 200 in 26.25.

Rynard took third in the 800 with a time of 2:17.77.

"This was Ashley Myers' best indoor meet to record," said Holland. "She ran here last year and showed vast improvement. Ashley Rynard had never competed in an indoor meet before, and it was a learning experience for her. She knows what she needs to do in the future to run more successfully on the indoor track.
