WICHITA — McPherson College’s track and field team made its presence known during Saturday’s Wichita State Invitational that included NCAA Division I and II teams, and other levels of competition.

Sharica Pleasant highlighted the meet for the Bulldogs, as she claimed third place in the heptathlon with 4,538 points that not only gives her the school record, but slots her into second place in the NAIA. En route to her total, the multi-event athlete also took down a near 30-year old record in the 100 hurdles with her time of 14.65. 

Other top placers for the women were Jazmine Alexander in the 100 dash, claiming seventh with a time of 12.00. She broke Mac's school record and is now Top 10 in the nation, earning an "A" qualifying standard. 

 Arryana Barton took fourth in the shot put and fifth in the triple jump with marks of 44-1/2 and 38-9 3/4, respectively. She now holds an "A" standard in both and currently ranks atop the KCAC in the shot and second in the triple.  

Taylor Smiley had a solid performance in the 100 dash, qualifying for the 2014 NAIA Outdoor National Meet with a "B" standard.

On the men's side, Chris Newell finished the 3,000 steeplechase in sixth place with a time of 9:58.61, good for third in the conference.
