Waves Indoor Track Lowers Program Records

Izzy Connell

The Pepperdine women’s indoor track team got off to a great second season start at Northern Arizona’s Friday Night Duals last week. Impressive performances from the Waves earned them four top-seven finishes and helped to lower the program’s school-record marks in three events.

Senior Izzy Connell gained two record times — breaking her own record of 7.82 in the 60 meters with a time of 7.72, and outpacing Jordan Spencer’s 2016 record of 59.90 in the 400 meters. 

Freshman Emma Engelland broke the program’s record in the 60-meter hurdles with a time of 9.89, outpacing Madison Hays’ time of 10.31 from last year. 

“It was really a fun meet for the team,” Pepperdine Coach Robert Radnoti said in a press release provided to The Malibu Times. “We had some really outstanding performances, particularly in the sprints. We’re starting off right where we left off last year, which is fun.”

The Waves’ next indoor meet is scheduled for Jan. 27-28 at Washington’s UW Invitational.
