McPherson College’s track and field team hosted its Bulldog Last Chance Meet Friday at McPherson Stadium.  

Individuals were entered in events they were close to qualifying for the NAIA championships. Mac earned one more qualifier and also broke two records in the meet.

Josh Dunback ended his career as a Bulldog with a bang as he broke the school record in the hammer throw with his toss of 155-9, taking down the old record of Dan Hudachek from 2007. 

 Fellow senior Bill Tebbetts threw a personal record in the hammer, earning a mark of 134-6.  Other PRs set included Dixon Cooney in the 800 (1:54.20; the freshman needed 1:54 to qualify for nationals) and Sean Seymore went 39-9 1.4 in the triple jump and cleared 5-8 in the high jump to end his freshman season on a high note.

Dajana Gliesche took down the women's outdoor long jump record with her leap of 18-6 and also earned a "B" standard for the NAIA Championship meet. 

The Mac track and field team is now set for nationals, which are to be held in Gulf Shores, Al., from May 22-24.  The Mac women have four "A" standards and eight "B" for the championships. NAIA rules state that only three "B" qualifiers are allowed to go.  For the men, they own three "A" standards, two by Paul Rotering, and two "B" so their National lineup is set.
