NASHVILLE, TENN. -- Senior Allie Buchalski set a new Paladin record in the women's 3,000m and senior Troy Reeder topped the Furman school record in the mile  to lead the Paladin indoor track and field team Saturday in the final day of the Vanderbilt Invitational in Nashville, Tenn.   

Buchalski took first place with a time of 9:13.39 in the 3,000m, knocking almost eight seconds off of her previous Paladin record of 9:21.20, set in February of 2016.  Buchalski's time is the third-best in the nation so far this season in the event.  Reeder, who placed sixth in the mile, posted a time of 4:02.96, breaking Patrick Morgan's record of 4:04.45, which had stood since 2009.

All told, six Furman men notched top-10 finishes on Saturday.  The Paladins placed three runners among the top eight in the 3,000m, including senior Tanner Hinkle, who was third with a time of 8:20.00, and senior Brock Baker, who finished fifth at 8:20.20.  Junior Aaron Templeton turned in a time of 8:26.53 for eighth place.

Rookie Madison Daniel placed ninth with a time of 1:53.63 in the 800m, and sophomore Ryan Adams was also ninth in the mile with a time of 4:04.61.  

Freshman Gabrielle Jennings recorded a time of 4:51.92, just shy of the Furman record of 4:51.53, to finish fifth in the mile, while fellow freshman Emma Grace Hurley was tenth in the event at 4:57.58.

Furman will compete at the Camel City Invitational in Winston-Salem, N.C., on February 4.
