William Maye was part of the Wolf Pack school record setting 4x400 team

(Rome, Ga.) Loyola University New Orleans Track and Field team took to Shorter University’s Maddox Track at Barron Stadium in Rome, Georgia for day two of the SSAC Championship meet on Saturday April 27th.

The Wolf Pack student-athletes took down five school records at the meet and were close to seeing more school marks drop. Loyola has now seen 21 records fall during the 2013 outdoor track season.  The women's 4x800 team began breaking records on Friday, and four more dropped in Saturday's competition.  

Christina Guzman reset the school shot put mark for the sixth time this season as the freshman posted a 10.74 meter mark which bested her previous high of 10.67 at the Mississippi College Twilight Invitational.

Sarah Tortorich took third place in both the 100m and 200m races. She posted a time of 12.78 in the 100 meter race and a 25.95 second time in the 200 meter race.

Laura Givnish ran the fastest time for a Wolf Pack hurdler in the 100 meter hurdles race. Givnish put up an 18.32 second time which was 1.72 seconds faster than the team’s previous high mark of the season. Harley Augustine did the same at the 400 meter hurdles race as she posted a time of 1:11.84.

On the men’s side, three school records drop including the mark in the 400 meter race. Piero Ramirez circled the track in 50.57 seconds which topped the previous mark of 51.64 which Ramirez set earlier this season. He topped the previous mark of 51.69 set by Daniel Afandor at the USA Invitational two weeks ago.

The relay teams accounted for the other school records as the 4x100 team as Mark Robinson, Claude Nelson, P. Ramirez, and Mario Ramirez had a time of 44.07, which bested the 45.02 mark the same four athletes set at the Louisiana Classics meet in March. The 4x400 team of P. Ramirez, Nelson, M. Ramirez, and William Maye completed the race in 3:24.52 which was almost six seconds faster than the foursome’s previous best time and school record.

Maye then went out and fell .08 seconds short of setting another school record in the 800 meter race. He put up a time of 2:02.50 which fell just short of Joe Kutner’s school mark in 2002.

Paul Freese’s time of 4:10.77 in the 1500 meter race was just shy of Richard Bouckaert’s 2004 school record which stands at 4:10.

The men’s track and field team finished in sixth place in the conference as they scored 39 points in the 21 events at the championship meet. The Wolf Pack women’s squad finished in fifth place with an 88.5 total in 21 events.
