Christian Lynch set a school record in the 100m

(Gulf Shores, Ala.) After setting six school records on Day 1 of the SSAC Championships, the Wolf Pack track and field team added three more records on Saturday’s second day at Mickey Miller Blackwell Stadium.

Christian Lynch and Justin Johnson set school records yesterday while qualifying for the finals in the 100m and 200m dashes respectively. However, both freshman runners cut their times even more in Saturday’s final races. Lynch took fourth place in the 100m dash with a time of 10.94 seconds. Prior to the weekend, Chirs Vo held the school mark at 11.01 seconds. Lynch defeated that on Day 1 with a mark of 11.00 seconds. Johnson also took fourth while resetting the school record in the 200m dash finals. Johnson set a new school mark by finishing the race in 22.09 seconds after completing the preliminary round in 22.35.

Loyola also saw a record established in the men’s 3000m steeplechase as Mike Corso finished with a time of 10:56.48 to put his name in the Wolf Pack annals. Paul Freese was close to setting a school record in the 1500m race as he took fourth place. The junior had a mark of 4:10.96 which fell just short of Richard Bouckaert’s school record of 4:10 set in 2004.

Toren Arnold finished in third place in the men’s 800m race. The freshman completed two laps around the track in 1:57.43. Arnold fell just short of the school record of 1:56.35 which he set earlier this season at the USA Invitational.

Kennedi Henneberger was shy of the school’s 3000m steeplechase record when she finished in third with a time of 13:07.44. Elizabeth Gienger set the school record earlier this season with a mark of 13:05.74 at the Mississippi College Twilight Invitational. Gienger finished Saturday’s race in 14:50.78.

Friday’s competition saw Maddie Guidry set the school’s pole vault record. Both the men’s and women’s 4x800m relay teams set school marks. Anthony Parker claimed the only conference championship for the Pack as he won the men’s javelin competition with a Mickey Miller Blackwell Stadium record.

Loyola’s women’s team finished in sixth place with 45 points for the meet. Brenau was the women’s champion with a score of 321.5. The Loyola men took fifth with a two day total of 77 points. Emmanuel claimed a team championship with a score of 191.
