Elizabeth Gienger set the school record in the 3000m Steeplechase on Friday

(Clinton, Miss.) Loyola University New Orleans men’s and women’s track teams cracked the school record books four times at the Mississippi College Twilight Invitational on Friday afternoon.

Elizabeth Gienger set a new school mark in the 3000m steeplechase after she had set a new school mark last season. Gienger finished second in the race with a time of 13:05.74 on Saturday. That mark surpassed her time of 13:16.95 which was set at the LSU Relays last season.

Toren Arnold defeated his own school mark in the 800m race with a time of 1:59.4a9. The freshman took sixth place in the race while surpassing the mark of 2:00.31 which was set at the first outdoor meet of this season at the Southern Mississippi Invitational.

Mike Corso took fourth in the 5000m race with a 15:49.09 mark. That was 19 seconds faster than Paul Freese’s school record of 16:08.61 which was also set at the LSU Relays last season.

Christian Lynch set the fourth school record in the long jump. The freshman finished fourth with a height of 7.00m. That mark outdistanced the old school record held by Martin Morse since 1999. Morse had a height of 6.54m.

The Wolf Pack track and field team will return to competition on Saturday, April 12th as they head to the University of South Alabama Invitational.
