WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Senior Sinead Haughey and redshirt freshman Troy Reeder set school records in the Camel City 3,000m events to lead the Furman indoor track and field teams Saturday at the Hilton Garden Invitational at the JDL Fast Track in Winston-Salem, N.C.
Haughey, who posted a time of 9:33.10 for 11th place, broke the old record of 9:33.36 set last season by current sophomore Grace Tinkey. Reeder placed sixth with a time of 8:04.87, shattering the former record of 8:18.06 set last season by current senior Tripp Hurt.
Senior William Ivey turned in a mile time of 4:12.82 for second place, while freshman Jacquelyn Crow finished third with a time of 4:58.15 in the women's mile event. Sophomore Laura Miller was ninth in the mile, notching a time of 5:06.6.1.
"We recorded lots of great times this weekend," said Furman head coach Robert Gary. "Among the highlights, Reeder ran the 3,000m in 8:04, which will convert to 7:58, and Haughey clocked a 9:33 in the same event, which will convert to 9:27. The highlight of the whole meet was probably Furman assistant coach Cory Leslie holding off the Olympic silver medalist, Leo Manzano, to run the second-fasted mile in the world this year (3:56.99) on a flat 200m track, which would convert to a sub-3:55!"
Following an off weekend, Furman will compete at the High Point Team Challenge in Winston-Salem, N.C., on Feb. 12.
