MARION, Ind. - A total of four school records were broken in the first outdoor track and field meet of the year as the Adrian Bulldogs traveled to the Polar Bear Invitational at Indiana Wesleyan and competed in the non-scoring meet.
Freshman Megan McPherson started the record breaking for the women as she snapped the school record in the 10,000m run, winning the event in 38:32.54.
The Bulldogs then had the 100m record and the 200m record also broken, as senior Kelsea Sellers finished first and second in the events respectfully. Sellers ran the 100m dash in 12.25, followed by a 25.74 second performance in the 200m dash.
Sellers and the Bulldogs were not done, as the 4x100 relay team also had a broken record in mind. Jazmyne Curry, Kristen Langerman, Natalie Miller, and Sellers ran to a second place finish in 49.64 seconds, which snapped the school record.
While the men did not break any school records, they were not lacking first and second place finishes on the meet. Junior Chad Allemon had two of those on the day, running to a first place finish in the 400m dash at 49.69, and a second place run in the 200m dash at 22.60.
The Bulldogs had quite the day in the long distance running as well, notching two first place finishes. In the 10,000m run, Cyle Rogotzke crossed the finish line first in 33:14.17 and in the 3,000m steeplechase, Eric Kilpatrick ran to a first place finish in 10:19.99. In the 5,000m run, Thomas Windle got a second place finish in 15.35.42.
In the high jump, Aaron Wielfaert recorded a leap of 6-07.00, which was also good enough for first place.
The next outdoor meet for the Bulldogs will take place at Defiance College, as Adrian will travel to Defiance, Ohio on March 30th for the 3pm meet.
