GREENVILLE, S.C. -- Four Paladin indoor track and field records fell on Friday, as Furman competed at both the Iowa State Classic in Ames, Iowa, and at the Samford University Invitational in Birmingham, Ala.
In Iowa, senior Tanner Hinkle returned after spending the fall semester overseas and set a new Furman with a time of 14:13.42 in the 5,000m, placing third and dropping over a second off his previous school record, which he set last season. Senior Troy Reeder posted a time of 8:00.07 and finished eighth in the Invitational 3,000m, breaking his own previous record, which he set in 2015, by over two seconds. Senior Allie Buchalski won the Invitational 5,000m with a time of 15:46.86 at the meet, breaking the previous record of 16:35.17, set by Sinead Haughey in 2015.
Sophomore Quandarius Weems posted a time of 8.19 in the 60m high hurdles at Samford, topping the prior Furman record of 8.83 which was set by Will Johnson in 2008, and finishing seventh in the event's finals.
The Paladins notched five additional top-10 finishes at the Samford meet, with freshman Luke Meade placing second in the 3,000m with a time of 8:28.85, and junior Jacquelyn Crow taking tenth in the 800m at 2:16.28. In the women's mile, rookie Riley Burr crossed the line in 5:00.32 to capture first place, and senior Ann Sisson finished third at 5:01.78. Crow placed eighth in the event with a time of 5:04.96.
