San Angelo, Texas - Trinity's track & field athletes set personal marks and challenged NCAA Divisions I and II competitors this weekend at the David Noble Relays.
Seve Rodriguez ran a personal-best time of 55.89 seconds in the men's 400-meter hurdles, which was just one second from qualifying for the finals, and was two seconds faster than his top time in the event this season.
Andy Garza completed the women's 400-meter hurdles in 1:03.80, which was less than half a second from her personal best, and just shy of the finals qualifying mark.
Abigail Bannon-Schneebeck set a new personal record in the women's 400 meters, clocking in at a Trinity season-best 59.58 seconds and earning a spot on the school's all-time top 10 list in the event.
After breaking the Tiger record in the 100-meter hurdles less than a week ago, Bannon-Schneebeck ran the second-fastest time of her career today, clocking in at 15.12 seconds - a time that is 0.02 seconds faster than the previous record.
Stella Affognon posted a team-leading mark of 11.10 meters in the shot put, as well as a throw of 39.41 meters in the discus throw - just over two meters shy of the school record she set recently at the Bobcat Invitational.
Yesterday, Andoniki Defteraiou tied for first in the women's heptathlon in the Blue section with a score of 3,967 points.
The Tiger teams will send student-athletes to two meets April 12-13. Locally, Trinity will compete at the University of the Incarnate Word (TX) University Invitational. Other team members will head to the University of California at San Diego Triton Invitational at La Jolla, California.
