Rooney added two more all-time marks to the record book in the 60 hurdles. Competing this past weekend in a dual meet against St. Thomas, Rooney went 7.90 in the prelims for the No. 8 performance in NCAA DIII history and followed that up with 7.93 effort in the final for the victory and the No. 11 performance on the all-time chart.
