WICHITA—The Wichita State track and field teams sent athletes to Lincoln, Nebraska, and Lawrence to compete and JD Prinsloo broke the school's 600-meter record and Rebekah Topham broke the Anschutz Pavilion 1,000 meters' record on Friday.
The Prairie Wolf Invitational in Lincoln, Nebraska, saw a school-record performance.
Prinsloo, a first-semester student from South Africa, set the Wichita State 600 meters' school-record time. He finished his first race in a Shocker uniform in 1:20.94. Prinsloo beat out the previous record by just under a full second.
The sprinters in Nebraska also went to experience a 200-meter banked track, which is the kind of track at the AAC Championships' host site (Birmingham Crossplex).
