RALEIGH, N.C. - On the second and final day of the Raleigh Relays, several Laker runners and field athletes scored Top 10 finishes, including the breaking of one school record.
Sean Wells, the first Grand Valley State individual sprinter champion after winning the 60 meter hurdles, set the school record for the 110 meter hurdles in a second-place finish with a time of 14.03. It's the third record broken by Wells in 2015, and the third time he broke his own record. He originally broke the 200 meter record at the 2015 Big Meet, and broke the 60 meter hurdles record at the 2014 Gladstein Invitational, then at the 2015 GLIAC Indoor Championships, and again at the 2015 NCAA Division II Indoor National Championships.
Ethan Barnes scored a second-place finish for the Lakers, running the 800 meter in a time of 1:51.17. Both the men's 4x1500 meter and 4x400 meter relay teams also recorded finishes in the Top 10, with the 4x400 meter team placing fifth (3:14.58) and the 4x1500 meter team placing seventh (16:31.81). Wuoi Mach was the final individual runner on Saturday for GVSU, taking 16th in the 800 meter with a time of 1:57.90, while Matt Lowe finished 27th in the javelin (41.45m) as the lone field athlete competing on Saturday for the Lakers.
For the women, they had one individual and one relay team competing. Rebecca Anderson secured a second-place finish in the javelin with a throw of 46.51 meters, while the 4x400 meter relay team finished with a time of 3:52.58 to take sixth.
