CRETE, Neb.  —  McPherson College’s track and field teams showed considerable promise Saturday in the Ward Haylett Invitational as multiple personal records were set, 11 top-six finishes were recorded and the first school record of the year was taken down.

Rea Samuels (Williston, Fla.) snapped the women's 60-meter record with her time of 7.98, which also earned her a third-place finish in the meet. Samuels originally broke the record in preliminaries with a mark of 7.99, but bested it in finals by one one-hundreth of a second. Samuels also placed fourth in the 200. 

Transfer middle distance runner Grace Viuhkola (Hood River, Ore.) took first in the 800 with a time of 2:37.13. She was also a member of the fourth-place 4  x 800 relay squad.

On the men's side of the track, Chandler Dohe (Limon, Colo.) led the charge for the Bulldogs with his second-place finish in the high jump as he leapt 6-3 1/4. Middle distance runner Dixon Cooney (Loveland, Colo.) ended the 1000 in 4th with his time of 2:45.78.

The Mac track & field unit will head back to Crete, Neb., next weekend on Jan. 18 for their second of five indoor meets.
