The No. 2 Michigan women’s track and field team took part in the Tyson Invitational in Fayetteville, Ark., this weekend as part of its preparation for the Big Ten Championships in two weeks.

The two-day event, which was not scored, saw the Wolverines shine in numerous individual races.

Redshirt freshman Christina Solomon finished in second place in the high jump, recording a career-best clearance of 5-foot-5.

Michigan also had four competitors finish in the top-25 of the pole vault led by a 14th place showing by fifth-year senior captain Krista Pearson.

But perhaps the most impressive performance of the weekend came from junior Nicole Edwards. She was the lone Wolverine to garner an NCAA automatic qualifying bid, finishing in eighth place in the mile run, with a time of 4:36.08.

Michigan returns to Ann Arbor next weekend to host the Harold Silverstein Invitational.
