FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. - Middle Tennessee's Brittany Cox placed 19th in the shot put competition of the 2010 NCAA Indoor Championship in Fayetteville, Ark. recording a mark of 50-6 (15.89m).

Cox's 50-6 (15.89m) toss came on the senior's third throw of the preliminary round of the competition. She threw 49-5.75 (15.08m) and 48-1.75 (14.67m) in her first two tosses, respectively.

The Antioch, Tenn., native's season best toss of 53-5.5 (16.29m) was thrown at the Middle Tennessee Invitational last month. This toss would set a new Sun Belt and Middle Tennessee record. Cox would injury her ankle in practice the next week, making it unclear at the time if she would be able to compete at these championships.

Cox will rejoin her teammates as the squads will open outdoor competition at the Rhodes Invitational in Memphis, Tenn. Full results and coverage will be available on GoBlueRaiders.com.
