Pepperdine Runner Breaks School Records

Izzy Connell

Pepperdine runner Izzy Connell brought down three school records during an outstanding performance at the UC Irvine Spring Break Invitational last week. The sprinter set two individuals in the 200- and 400-meter races and was part of a record-breaking 4×400-meter relay team. 

Connell scored sixth in the 400-meter race and brought down a record formerly set in 2011 with a time of 57.61. In the 200-meter race, she bettered her own record and broke the 25-second mark with a time of 24.97 — gaining her a fourth-place finish. 

Connell joined junior Jordan Spencer, freshman Catie Barilla and sophomore Claudia Rodriguez to lower the 4×400-meter relay record for the third time this season with a time of 3:56.39.

Next, the Waves will travel to San Diego to compete in the Aztec Invitational on March 26.
