That time was the second fastest in school history and fastest qualifying time of the day. Later she took second in the final of the event in 8.39.”Mary had monster PR in the hurdles,” Bennett added. “We had a game plan that she executed it perfectly, but even I was shocked when I saw 8.37.”The Bulldogs’ 4×400-meter relay team also turned in the sixth fastest women’s time in school history with a time of 3:50.34 to take eighth place.
