The Vols are back in action today at the 2013 NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships in Eugene, Ore. To open the event on Wednesday, redshirt sophomore pole vaulter Tyler Porter recorded a lifetime best en route to a seventh-place finish. Just three years ago, Porter suffered a broken back during a competition before coming to Rocky Top. Check out this story on his journey to All-America status from his hometown newspaper.

After earning the honor for the second straight year during the indoor season, incoming Lady Vol Felecia Majors has been named the 2013 Spring All-Met Girls' Track & Field Athlete of the Year.

Fellow Lady Vol signee Brielyn Rogers of McNamara High School was named All-Met Honorable Mention.
