Turpin native Chandler Kirkhart helped set at record on the Southwestern College track and field team.  The former walk-on and local country music star helped set a school record recently at the NAIA Outdoor Championships.  Here is the press release from Southwestern College regarding the record. 

Marion Ind.- The SC men's 4 x 100m relay team highlighted an outstanding 3 days of competition at the 2012 NAIA National Outdoor Championships.  A total of nine All-American performances made for a very rewarding completion to the 2012 track season.

The 4 x 100 Relay time of 40.64 was good for a 4th place finish and All-America honors.  Their time broke a 17 year old record which was set in 1995 with a time of 40.88.They entered the meet with a qualifying mark of 41.63.  The relay consisted of Kevin Rodgers, Chandler Kirkhart, Elliot Muegge, and Colton Siler.

"I couldn't be prouder of the 4x1 relay," commented head women's coach and sprint coach Mike Kirkland.  "They entered the meet ranked 10th with a 41.63 and when they ran 41.04 in the prelims, I knew they were determined to be on the podium and All-Americans on Saturday.  To survive 2 rounds and then run 40.64 in the finals was phenomenal. It was a very special moment."
