GREENSBORO, N.C. - Guilford College's men's and women's track and field teams collected new high marks in school history, including two new school records, in Friday and Saturday's Aggie Invitational, hosted by North Carolina A&T. Guilford was the lone Division III among a field of Division I and II competitors.

Jeremiah Hedrick led the men with a tenth-place finish in the long jump, posting a mark of 6.49 meters. The mark elbows it's way into Guilford's top all-time marks, placing seventh in school history. Nate Phillips was close behind Hedrick, placing 13th with a mark of 6.41 meters.

Jonny Sumner took the third-best non-Division I time in the 800 meter run, posting a time of 2:04.49. The time was third in his section and placed 19th overall.

Josephus Mitchell posted the sixth-best non-Division I time in the 100 meter dash, finishing with a time of 11.09 seconds.

The Quakers now focus on the Old Dominion Athletic Conference Championships, which begin next Friday and run through next Saturday at Washington and Lee University.
