Tennessee freshman athlete Favour Ashe has set a program indoor record at the Tyson Invitational, hosted by Arkansas, on February 11, 2022 in Fayetteville.
Ashe, the defending SEC Freshman of the Week, broke the school’s freshman record in the 60-meter dash, crossing the finish line in 6.52 seconds during the preliminary race.
The previous record of 6.56 seconds was held by Leonard Scott set in 1999.
Ashe’s time is the fastest in the Southeastern Conference this season and third in the NCAA. His mark is third fastest mark in UT history behind Scott’s 6.48 seconds in 2001 and Christian Coleman’s school record of 6.45 seconds, which was achieved in 2017.
Ashe has the 13th fastest time in the world this year.
