 Grace McKenzie, Belgooly AC, set a new Irish Indoor Pentathlon record of 4,211 points at yesterday's Samford Multis, in Birmingham, Alabama, USA, breaking the previous Irish record of 4,174, held by Kate O’Connor, which was set in Sheffield, UK, just 11 days ago. Grace broke the McNeese State record for the first time at last year’s Southland Conference Indoor Championships with a gold medal-winning point total of 4,030. In addition to breaking both the McNeese College and Irish Records, it was also a new Southland Conference record, surpassing UTSA's Ryanne Dupree's 2006 score of 4,055 points.

It was certainly an eventful day for Grace...she also set a McNeese State high jump record, with a 1.74m jump, to take first place, while she set a new personal record in the shot put, for 3rd place, with a put of 11.47m. Grace was second in the long jump, in 5.81m, and won both the 60-meter hurdles, in 8.69 secs, and the 800-meters, in 2:13.51.

Grace finished second overall to Kennesaw State athlete Jordan Gray, who scored 4,218 points to edge out McKenzie by a mere seven (7) points
