HUTCHINSON —  It was a near-perfect night for a track and field meet on Thursday as the McPherson College Bulldogs competed in the 2015 Hutchinson County Community College Night Relays. 

Mac racked up 21 personal records and won a handful of events.

Chris Newell got the meet started off strong for Mac as he ran a new PR of 9:46.89 in the 3000 steeplechase, winning the event by over 15 seconds. Art Hop won his third-straight crown in the pole vault, 15-5 on his third attempt. This is a NAIA "B" standard qualifying mark. Junior transfer Michael Barrett set new PRs in two of his three throwing events.

On the women's side, it was a day for the distance runners. Laura Gibson took first in the 1.500 at 5:06.68, setting a new PR. Miranda Clark Ulrich won the 5,000 crossing at a new personal record of 20:47.41. Savana Cross was the first 10K runner to finish, coming in at 45:54.11. Rea Samuels did a nice job in the sprints, coming within a few hundredths of PRs in the 100 (12.58) and the 200 (25.81) dashes. She finished in fourth in both events, losing to the same three junior college athletes.

The Bulldogs will compete next weekend down in Wichita, Kansas at the KT Woodman Classic hosted by Wichita State University and Friends University.
