LINCOLN, Neb. — It was another productive meet Friday for the McPherson College track and field team.

The Bulldogs competed at the Prairie Wolf Invitational, hosted by Nebraska Wesleyan University, breaking two school records and qualifying another athlete for Nationals.

"The team stepped up their performances today against some great NAIA, NCAA D-I and D-2 talent," Mac coach Cameron Magnall said. "I'm very pleased with the progress we've made with our preparations for the KCAC Championships.”

Perry Joseph ran a 6.88 in the 60 and finished first for the third straight week.  J'Moi Penn and Josiah Oyebefun joined Joseph in the finals. The Bulldogs currently hold the top six times in the KCAC for the 60. 

Julian Nagata broke the 600 school record with a 1:25.85 time. Also breaking a school record was the men's 4 x 400 relay team of Jawaun Stuart, Akim Muhammad, Marlon Clayton and Joseph as it ran a 3:24.35, finishing fourth.

On the women's side, Dajana Gliesche highlighted the finishes as she recorded PRs in both the 60 (7.945) and the 60 hurdles (9.21). Her time in the hurdles earned her a B standard for the national championships. Now atop the conference in the 800 is Laura Gibson, who ran a 2:30.94 in her first attempt of the year.

The Bulldogs will have a few of weeks off until their next competition, which is the 2015 KCAC Indoor Track & Field Championships Feb. 13-14 at Ahearn Field House in Manhattan, Kansas.
