Bethel sets

shot record

WICHITA — Bethel College junior Kyle Wilson broke a 61-year old record Saturday in the shot put at the Friends Invitational.

Wilson hit a mark of 15.87 meters (52-1) to place second at the meet, which featured competitors from NCAA Division I, NAIA and junior college programs.

Wilson broke the record set by Don Penner in 1956, Bethel’s longest standing record.

“I just had a good week of practice and felt good out there,” Wilson said.

Wilson’s mark also broke the NAIA A national qualifying mark, allowing him to compete in the NAIA National Championships May 25 through 27 at Gulf Shores, Ala.

Wilson took second in the discus at 46.32 meters (152-0).

“I was just off my best in the discus,” Wilson said. “I’m also just short of the (NAIA) A mark. I’m hoping to get that.”

Wilson hasn’t competed in track since high school.

“It’s been five years since I’ve competed in track,” he said. “I came to Bethel to play football and talked to the track coach this year about coming out. So far it’s been pretty good. … I’m excited about breaking the record. I’m hoping (Penner) will be here Saturday. I’m looking forward to meeting him and shaking his hand.”

Wilson was named the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference field athlete of the week for his performance.

Julio Martinez took second in the 800-meter run in 2:00.65 and fifth in the 1,500-meter run in 4:09.46.

For the Bethel women, Rashé Boynton took seventh in the 100-meter dash in 12.17, an NAIA B qualifying mark. Boynton was eighth in the 200-meter dash in 25.71.

Katelyn Fatten placed sixth in the 800-meter run in 2:30.29. Fantasia Johnson took sixth in the long jump in 5.03 meters (16-6). Alyjah Kennedy took seventh in the triple jump in 10.76 meters (35-3 3/4).

Bethel hosts the Bethel Invitational Saturday. Field events start at noon, followed by running events at 3 p.m.
