Another record

falls for BC

SEWARD, Neb. — For the fifth straight week, a Bethel athlete broke a school record in indoor track.

Saturday at the Concordia (Neb.) Invitational in Seward, senior Julio Martinez took third in the 600-meter run in 1:22.85, breaking a record set by Jamison Unruh by almost seven seconds. Martinez also finished .25 seconds shy of the NAIA automatic national qualifying mark.

"We were trying to get a shorter race in this week to work on his speed," Bethel coach Jeff Hoskisson said. "He ran a pretty evenly split race and just missed hitting the qualifying mark."

Freshman Jen Andres ran a 60-meter dash time of 7.92 seconds and finished the 400-meter dash in 1:01.63. Andres finished third in the 200-meter dash in 25.91, missing the NAIA automatic qualifying mark by .01 seconds.

"We were hoping for a school record in the 400, but she fell just a little short," Hoskisson said. "We decided that to be able to run a really fast 200 it was better for her to skip the 60 final because it was right after the 400 and the added rest would help in the 200, which it did."

Lori White finished the 400 in 1:03.21 and the 200 in 27.96.

For the BC men, Bruce Rosario finished the 60 in 7.36 and the 200 in 23.73. Amondr’e Street finished 7.35 in the 60 and 24.14 in the 200.

Andres and Martinez will compete at a last chance meet this weekend at Kansas State.
