Chelsea Shapard broke the school record in the 400-meter hurdles to lead the Utes at the Arkansas Twilight on Friday, May 2. Shapard won the hurdle event with a time of 58.07, easily outpacing her other competitors. She broke her own school record of 58.47 which was set back on May 12, 2007. Her time was the eighth fastest time recorded in the event nationally in collegiate track and field this year. "This is what we have been looking for from her," Utah head track coach Kyle Kepler said of Shapard. "We are really excited about her. This was the right situation and the right night. She did it by herself – and we know there’s more there."
