MANHATTAN — Eight more school records either fell or were tied on Saturday at the Kansas State Invitational for the McPherson College track and field team, five by the women and three from the men. Arryana Barton also posted her second national qualifying mark, coming in the women's shot put.

The three records to fall for the men's team were the 400, 4 x 400 relay and the shot put. In two of those instances, the athletes broke their own record.

 Akim Muhammad ran a second faster in the 400, finishing second and improving his own school record to 50.76.  Paul Rotering broke his record from a year ago in the shot put with a mark of 14.44m (47' 4.5"). The 4 x 400 squad posted a time of 3:29.56. It was comprised of Marlon Clayton, Demetres Greenwood, Michael Janzer  and Muhammad. Muhammad also placed fifth in the 200 with a time of 22.74. Lyle Buckner finished in second in the triple jump with a mark of 13.11m (43' .25")

On the women's side, the first record to be touched was the shot put as Barton posted a distance of 42' 9.25, putting her in third place, qualifying her for nationals again, and helping her tie a record from 2010. 

Grace Viuhkola was the next Bulldog to knock off a record as she ran a 3:18.19 in the 1,000. Kaley Kinnamon  broke the 400 record and then Rea Samuels broke her own 200 mark from last season. The final record to go for the ladies was the 4 x 400 time which was set just last week. This go-around, the group was Deja Matlock, Samuels, Sharica Pleasantand Kinnamon, finishing at a time of 4:10.27.

Mac will have a few athletes compete next week at the Missouri Southern State meet with the 2014 KCAC Indoor Championships being the next meet for most of the squad, set for February 7-8 in Manhattan.
