McKenzie Sets New Record

"LAKE CHARLES – McNeese junior multi-event performer Grace McKenzie etched her name in the Cowgirl record book on Friday, after she placed first in the heptathlon at the SFA Carl Kight Invitational, in Nacogdoches, Texas, with a school record 5,406.
 
McKenzie broke the previous record of 5,265, was set by Mariah Georgtown in 2012. Her points total moves her up to the No. 1 position in the Southland Conference, and also ranks her second in the Division I East Qualifying, as well as seventh overall in Division I.
 
She won the event by more than 400 points.
 
In addition to setting a new school record, McKenzie blistered her previous PR point total by more than 1,000 points."
