The UAA indoor track and field team continued its assault on the conference record book Sunday when Dominik Notz set a Great Northwest Athletic Conference mark in the 3,000 meters.

Notz, a senior from Dettingen, Germany, registered a time of 8 minutes, 10.19 seconds to place third in the 3,000 meters at the Washington Open in Seattle. The time broke the GNAC record of 8:10.99 set in 2014 by UAA's Micah Chelimo.

But there's still a Chelimo in the GNAC record book at 3,000 meters. On Saturday, Joyce Chelimo, Micah's wife, shattered the women's record with a time of 9:17.97 – the second-fastest indoor 3,000 in NCAA Division II history.

Chelimo's record was one of two set by the Seawolves on Saturday. The men's 1,600-meter relay team also enjoyed a record run.

Sunday's highlights for the Seawolves included school records from the women's 1,600-relay team (3:52.84 by Mary-Kathleen Cross, Jessica Pahkala, Hayley Bezanson and Jamie Ashcroft and freshman triple jumper Christopher Brake (46 feet, 11.5 inches).
