Elizabeth Gienger set a school record in the 3000m steeplechase

(Baton Rouge, La.) Loyola University New Orleans Track and Field team took to Bernie Moore stadium at LSU on Saturday and set two more school records on the second day of the LSU Relays after setting two records yesterday.

The women’s 4x100 meter relay team set a school record by running a time of 50.83 which was .02 seconds faster than the 50.85 time they posted at the Louisiana Classics last weekend. The squad of Candace Johnson, Sarah Tortorich, Harley Augustine, and Alexandra Lain barely surpassed the time of last weekend. Harley Augustine replaced Etashat’e Hollins on the four person squad to help set the new record.

Elizabeth Gienger also clinched a new school record in the 3000 meter steeplechase as she posted a time of 13:16.95 in the event. She finished seventh in the race at the LSU Relays.

The men’s 4x100 meter relay team almost followed suit, but fell just short of a new school record as the four person team of Mark Robinson, Claude Nelson, Piero Ramirez, and Aleksander Matoski posted a time of 45.78 seconds. Nelson, Mario Ramirez, Piero Ramirez, and Robinson ran a time of 45.02 at the Louisiana Classics this past weekend which broke the previous school mark.

The Wolf Pack set two school records on day one of the LSU Relays. Paul Freese ran a 16:08.61 time in the 5,000 meter race to top a school record and Christina Guzman surpassed her own school record in the shot put with a 10.64 meter throw.

The Wolf Pack track and field team will be back in action on April 5th for the Mississippi College Twilight Invitational in Clinton, Mississippi.
