Sophomore Corinne Zehner wrote herself into the record books twice Saturday afternoon.
Zehner broke her own school record in the 60 meter hurdles, and later led teammates Allison Duber, Emily Guy and Dani Gagne on a record-breaking performance in the 4x400 relay, finally catching a record that group had been building to for several weeks.
Zehner's time of 8.91 in the 60 hurdles was good for second place at the meet. The 4x400 relat team blazed its way to a second-place finish with a time of 3:51.99.
