WICHITA — Laura Gibson has come all the way from Scotland to run for the McPherson College women’s track and field team.

On Saturday, the European from Kinross broke a 45-year-old Mac record when she ran a 4:58.6 in the 1,500 meters at the KT Woodman Classic at Wichita State.

 The old mark was held by Mac Hall of Famer Kathy Rogers in 1970.

Also for the Mac women, Rea Samuels had a great day by running 12.3 in the 100 and is now second in the KCAC in that event.

While Gibson highlighted the performances by the Mac women, reigning KCAC Field Athlete of the Week Art Hop may have made a strong statement to earn the honor again after clearing 16-3/4 in the pole vault. He is now fourth in the nation.
