Rogers Sets New Standard at Emory Invitational
Sophomore track star Ky'Laine Rogers set another school sprint record by breaking Andrea Vinson's six year old 100 meter mark with with a sizzling 12:38 Saturday at the Emory Invitational in Decatur on Saturday afternoon.
Rogers, who hails from McDonough Ga., now owns every significant women's sprint record held by a Petrel. In addition to this latest mark, Rogers, in only her second season, also claims the outdoor 200 record set last year and both the indoor major sprinting marks. Counting relays, Rogers now holds or shares six school marks.
The Petrels, still on spring break, sent a skeleton squad to Emory in preparation for next week's much larger Emory Classic. There were some significant personal records set, however, at Saturday's event. Freshman Aniysa Taylor in the 200 open, Kylon Haugabook in the men's 400 and and team captain Raven Foust in the 800 all recorded personal bests. The entire squad now begins preparation for the quick turnaround this upcoming weekend back at Emory.
