More Penn State Behrend school records were set Saturday at the Kenyon College Spring Invitational.

The Behrend men won the 13-team meet, while the women placed seventh.

Cathedral Prep graduate Malik Moffett-Pulliam qualified for the ECAC championships and broke his own school record in the 200-meter dash with a time of 21.54 seconds. The freshman also qualified with his first-place finish in the 100 meter dash with a time of 10.81 seconds.

It was Moffett-Pulliam’s second school record in as many meets. He broke the record in the 100 on Wednesday at Carnegie Mellon.

Moffett-Pulliam, a freshman, ranks in the top 10 this season in all of Division III in the 100 and 200.

In the 1500, Northwest Collegiate Academy graduate and former Strong Vincent runner Josh Natalie won in a time of 4:03.98.

In the 1,600 relay, Moffett-Pulliam teamed with Kevin Lai, Andres Morales and Matthew Grafton to set a new Lions outdoor mark with a second-place finish of 3 minutes, 21.02 seconds.

Fort LeBoeuf grad Kevin Gardner tied for second in the high jump with a height of 1.93 meters, also an ECAC qualifying mark.

On the women’s side, Warren graduate Katie Spade qualified for ECAC’s in the 800. She finished first and broke her school record with a time of 2:13.66 — the 13th-best mark this season in D-III.

The 1,600 relay team of Franki DiSalvo (a McDowell graduate), Jen Gibson, Paige Allen and Spade bettered their school record with an ECAC-qualifying time of 4:03.42.

The Lions host the Penn State Behrend Invitational on Saturday starting at 11 a.m.
