EUGENE, Ore. – Kaylee Mitchell and Lindsay McShane each set a school record at the Hayward Premier on Friday and Saturday in what was an overall strong two days for the Oregon State track and field team.
"I felt that we really competed well," said head coach Louie Quintana. "We had several PRs, and Kaylee Mitchell broke the school record in the 5k and Lindsay McShane set the hammer record! We showed great balance and depth in a lot of events. I feel that we are close to some major breakthroughs, so this is a great step for us. Competing at the new Hayward Field was a cool experience for our group, one that we will definitely get used to."
Mitchell ran a 16:00.52 in the 5000m to set a new school record in the event, besting the previous outdoor mark of 16:05.04 set by Laura Carlyle on May 5, 2011. Mitchell finished ninth in the event.
