NASHVILLE, TENN. -- Furman freshman Kristlin Gear set a new Paladin record in the 800m to lead the Paladin indoor track and field team Saturday in the second day of the Vanderbilt Invitational in Nashville, Tenn.  

Gear posted a time of 2:08.18 in the 800m, placing fourth and topping the previous record of 2:13.10, which was set by Jacquelyn Crow in 2015. 

Sophomore Emma Grace Hurley, who placed second in the mile, crossed the line in 4:47.52, just two seconds off the Paladin record of 4:45.70, which was set by Allie Buchcalski last season.

Sophomore Savannah Carnahan was the top collegiate finisher in the 3,000m with a time of 9:17.89.

On the men's side, Furman placed three runners among the top eight in the 3,000m.  Senior Frank Lara was fifth with a time of 8:07.13, followed by sophomore Mason Coppi in sixth place at 8:09.64.  Freshman Daniel Bernal placed eighth with a time of 8:14.13.

The Paladins had two runners in the top 10 in the mile.  Senior Aaron Templeton finished sixth with a time of 4:07.18, and sophomore Jake Ogden was 10th at 4:09.34.
