MANHATTAN — On a day where 13 total meet records were set, three by McPherson College, both of the Bulldog track and field teams garnered second-place finishes Saturday at the KCAC Indoor Championships.

The men's squad was just six points out of first, while the women were 25 back. Countless personal records were set and 12 MC school records were either re-broken or taken down for the first time this season.

On a special note, McPherson College swept the top spot in the throwing events, taking first in both the men's and the women's weight throw and shot put.

Leading the charge for the men was Akim Muhammad, as he totaled 16 solo points and contributed to the 4 x 400 relay's second-place finish to give him 18 points for the meet. He was first in the 400, re-setting his own school record at 50.71, and third in the 200, 22.58. 

Also earning first-place honors was Josh Dunback, who earned the top slot in the weight throw on Friday, 14.50m (47' 7”). He also pulled in eight points with his second-place finish in the shot put. Paul Rotering also took first, throwing the shot 15.39m (50' 6”), which sends him to nationals with a "B" standard qualifying mark. The senior re-broke his school record with his final heave of the event.

Ninety-four of the McPherson women's total points were scored by four performers. Sharica Pleasant led the way with 28 points, as she took first in the 60 with a time of 9.11 which is a "B" standard, school record and KCAC record for their championships, set a MC record en route to being second in long jump at 5.16m (16' 11.25"), was fourth in the high jump at 1.52m (4' 11.75"), fourth in shot put with a mark of 11.64m (38' 2.25"), and was a member of the second-place 4 x 400 relay squad, which improved on its school record. Pleasant also participated in the 60, setting a school record in prelims and earning a NAIA "B" standard but finished eighth in finals. 

Arryana Barton was second on the list with her 26 points as she grabbed two firsts and a third for the meet. She went 11.39m (37' 4.5") for first in triple jump, 12.95m (42' 6") in shot for the crown, and 5.07m (16' 7.75") in long jump for third. Barton's marks in triple and shot also garnered "B" standard qualifying marks for the NAIA nationals, but she's already qualified in those events. She also set a new record for the KCAC Championships in shot put.

McPherson High graduate Kaley Kinnamon brought home 22 points in her first KCAC Championships meet, as the freshman transfer finished second in the 60 with a NAIA "B" standard of 7.85, was fourth in the 200m dash at 26.59, second in the 400 with a school-record time of 1:00.09, and also was on the 4 x 400 relay team. 

Finishing up the quartet was Rea Samuels, who put 18 points toward the cause. She placed third in the 60 with a split of 7.98, was first in the 200 at 26.10 (setting a KCAC and McPherson College indoor record) and was part of the second place 4 x 400 unit. Also grabbing the top spot for the women was Megan Pohlmann, who threw for 14.53m (47' 8") in Friday's weight throw. Her toss was also a new record for the KCAC Championships.
