CRETE, Neb. — McPherson College’s track team, coming off a year in which it won both the men’s and women’s KCAC Outdoor Championships, began its season indoors on Saturday.

Mac competed in the Ward Haylett Invitational, hosted by Doane College. There were multiple personal records and a few school records for Mac, not to mention one NAIA A-Standard Qualifier.

"I was pleased with how the team pulled together coming off of break and after a short, cold week of practice," Mac coach Cameron Magnall said. "There were some very strong performances across the board and I'm looking forward to seeing more improvement next week."

Perry Joseph won the 60 meters and qualified for nationals with a 6.86. The time is currently the fourth best in the NAIA and he broke his own McPherson College record

Dixon Cooney also set a record on Saturday as he ran a 2:36.27 in the 1,000 and was 3 seconds off a B-qualifier. The 4 x 400 relay squad ran a 3:28.63, knocking a few tenths off the old school record. Team members were Jawaun Stuart, Akim Muhammad, Demetres Greenwood and Marlon Clayton.

For the women, Jazmine Alexander ran a 7.9 in the 60-meter dash and finished third and was five-hundredths off of qualifying for Nationals. Dajana Gliesche and Neka Dias both set PRs in each one of their events.

McPherson returns to Crete next weekend as Doane College hosts the Scott Nisely Memorial Classic.
