Agnes Kemboi and Ashley Eckhoff placed in the 10,000 meters, helping TCU tie for seventh in the team standings with five points on the first day of the Big 12 Outdoor Track and Field Championships on Friday in Waco.

Kemboi finished fifth in 35:33.08. Eckhoff finished eighth in 36:11.90.

“I thought they both did very well,” TCU assistant coach Liz Wort said. “This was Ashley’s first college 10K, and they both did a good job.”

Kelsey Samuels did not score, finishing ninth in the hammer throw with a 176-8. But that distance broke her own school record of 176-0.

The Horned Frogs will compete in the women’s 1,500-meter and the women’s long jump on Saturday.

UTA softball wins

UT Arlington scored a run in the sixth inning and three in the seventh to take a come-from-behind 4-1 victory over host UT San Antonio in WAC softball.

Teri Lyles won her 20th game by throwing a five-hitter. She walked one and struck out six.

Nina Villanueva had a run-scoring double in the sixth, and Rebecca Stokes a two-run double in the seventh.

The Mavericks (23-25, 7-12) took advantage of two Roadrunners errors in the seventh.


• LSU football: Robert Bayardo, who has no connection to LSU football, has been booked with felony second-degree battery following his arrest in connection to the arrest of running back Jeremy Hill. LSU’s leading rusher in 2012, Hill has been suspended by the team.

• Texas State football: Coach Dennis Franchione agreed to a five-year contract extension that pays him $400,000 annually starting in 2014. Franchione led Texas State to a 6-6 record as an independent. The Bobcats went 4-8 last season as Franchione guided the program through its transition to Division I. The Bobcats will join the Sun Belt Conference in 2014.
