The Pima Community College men’s and women’s track & field teams set three new national qualifying marks on Saturday at the Cody McBride Invitational in Phoenix.

Sophomore Katherine Bruno (Canyon del Oro HS) took first place and set a new personal-record in the 800 meter race as she finished with a national qualifying time of 2 minutes, 21.57 seconds. She wasn’t finished as she took first place in the 1,500 meter race with a time of 4:53.68. Her time gave her another national qualifier and put her No. 3 in the nation.
