Anchorage’s Tanner Ealum was one of many Liberty University track and field stars to add her name to the Big South Conference record book.

She won the 800-meter title in record fashion as the Flames burned the competition with a meet record 289 points and the largest margin of victory since 1999 at the conference championships in High Point, North Carolina

Ealum, of ACS fame, posted a time of 2:06.89 in the 800 to set records for the meet and facility at Vet Stadium.

It was the third career Big South title for the sophomore, who also won the 400 indoor and outdoor titles last season as a freshman.

Ealum was named Big South Women’s Freshman of the Year after becoming the first Liberty woman to win the Big South indoor 400 title, along with a victory in the 4×400 relay and a third-place finish in the 200.

She’s already a 10-time All-Big South performer in just two years.
