GREENSBORO, N.C. – Rebecca Reyna set Guilford College’s school record in the 800-meter run and the Quakers’ 4×100 relay also set a school standard Saturday at the Aggie Invitational, hosted by North Carolina A&T State University. The meet featured some 800 runners from colleges and universities up and down the east coast.

Reyna placed 22nd in the 41-runner field with a time of two minutes, 30.32 seconds, which was nearly two seconds faster than teammate Jasmine O’Neill’s mark set at the 2012 Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Championships. Reyna and O’Neill both ran legs on Guilford’s first 4×400 relay team, which was clocked in 14th place in 4:27.92.

O’Neill also ran a leg on the record-setting 4×100 relay, which placed 15th among 17 schools in 54.29 seconds. Kaylea Trogdon, Khadija Carr and Sydney MacDonald also helped lower the former school standard of 54.51 seconds set at the 2013 ODAC Championships.

Trogdon’s leap of 4.53 meters in the long jump is the second-longest in school history. She finished in 22nd place among 31 contestants.

O’Neill and teammate Tess Stryk posted the fourth and fifth-best 400 times in school history. O’Neill, who owns the record of 1:06.21, ran a season-low 1:06.65 Saturday and took home 36th among 44 runners. Stryk came across in 39th place with a personal best time of 1:07.31.

Coach Danny Cash’s team competes at the ODAC Championships at Roanoke College April 18-19.
