2018-19 In Review: A Record Breaking Season For Track and Field

KEENE, N.H.--During the summer of 2019, the Keene State College Department of Athletics and Recreation will review some of the top moments of the recently ended school year, celebrating the achievements of our student-athletes and teams.

At No. 7, we recall all the records broken during the indoor and outdoor track and field seasons.

Indoors, two records were broken by the men, with a further two tied.  Angel Ramirez ran the 60 meter dash in 7.17 seconds, tying the mark set by Duran Shand in 2010. Clinton Mungeta had a part in two records, tying Eric Dietz's mark in the 400 meter dash of 50.1 seconds, and setting a new school mark in the 200 meter dash at 22.44 seconds.   Mungeta's new record in the 200 meter dash broke a record that had been set just a week earlier by teammate Brandon Castor.  

Mungeta and Ramirez also were a part of a record setting relay, joining up with Jared Hannon and Anthony Jennings to set a new mark in the 4x200 meter relay at 1:32.53.

Nicole de Almeida set a new mark in the women's 200 meter dash, running in 26.65.

Outdoors saw a further five records broken. 

De Almeida stamped a new mark in the 400 hurdles in 1:05.93, while Shannon Parks threw the shot put further than anyone else in school history had, at 39'6" (12.05 meters).    Alexis Gauthier set the record in the 100 hurdles at 15.01 seconds, while sister Skyler Gauthier broke the school record in the heptathlon with 4,370 points.

Hannon set a new school mark in the long jump, at 23'5" (7.14 meters).
