WALNUT / AZUSA, Calif. - Senior Shaun Ward and sophomore Haleigh Lloyd each set a Great Northwest Athletic Conference records in the men's and women's 400-meter hurdles, respectively, while freshman Grace Morgan and senior Micah Johnson broke Alaska Anchorage school records at the Bryan Clay Invitational on Friday.

Ward, from Eagle River, set the league record in the 400-meter hurdles with a NCAA provisional qualifying time of 52.00, good for second place overall. The previous record of 52:05 was set by Northwest Nazarene's Dallas Beaty in 2009.

Lloyd improved upon her own GNAC record in the women's 400-meter hurdles with a third-place finish in 59.62. The automatic qualifying time gave the Ladysmith, B.C., native her second career ticket to the NCAA Championships in May.

Morgan, from
Salt Spring Island, B.C., broke current student assistant coach Mary Pearce's 5-year-old record of 12.37 in the women's 100 meters with a time of 12.34, while Johnson set the UAA record in the men's pole vault at 13 feet, 11 ¼ inches.

Overall, the Seawolves combined for 14 personal bests. Highlighting the individual performances were freshman Isaac Kangogo, who produced the second-fastest 1500-meter time of the season for UAA at 3:53.89 and junior Ethan Hewitt, who recorded the fastest 400-meter time of the season at 48.51.

The Seawolves  will reunite for the Long Beach State Invitational in Norwalk, Calif., on Saturday.
