LINCOLN, Neb. -- Freshman Spencer Moon broke a 32-year old record in the 3,000 meters to highlight the Simpson men's and women's track and field teams at the Prairie Wolf Indoor Invitational on Friday.

In his first time running in the event, Moon crossed the finish in third with a time of 8:37.19 to clip the previous mark of 8:38.98 set by Dave Halferty in 1988. This is the second record the men have broken in the last two weeks.

Carter Berkey captured two second-place finishes in the field events. Berkey leaped 6.45 meters in the long jump and 12.05 meters in the triple jump to secure the best results the men received at the meet.

Ean Warrick and Levi Lefebure finished fifth and sixth, respectively, in the 1,000 meters. Austin Greenwalt tallied fifth in the 600 and Sam Adeniyi crossed in eighth. Adeniyi also earned fifth in the 60-meter hurdles for the men. Carter Fricke sprinted to seventh in the 60-meter dash.

For the women, Mackenzie Laughlin raced to fourth in the 1,000 meters for the team's best result. Laughlin ended in 3:18.01 and also had a ninth-place nod in the mile. Abby Loecke and Cat Lucht finished sixth and seventh, respectively, in the event with Laughlin.

Jamie Glanz placed ninth in two events for Simpson, one on the track and one in the field events. Glanz had a time of 1:53.01 in the 600 and she leaped 1.44 meters in the high jump.
