Point Park’s Anna Shields won a combined four NAIA national titles at the 2018 indoor and outdoor track and field championships.

Catch Anna Shields if you can.

The Point Park senior enthralled onlookers yet again with another record-breaking performance at the NAIA Indoor Track & Field National Championships Saturday in Brookings, S.D.

Shields defended her titles in the mile and 1,000-meter runs — within two hours of each other — while setting a record in the 1,000.

Later, she anchored the runner-up distance medley relay with a 4-minute, 41-second split.

Her winning time in the mile of 4:37.73 won Shields the gold by 12 seconds. In the 1,000 meters, she set a record with a mark of 2:44.35. Her personal-best time in that event of 2:42.51 set at Penn State, ranks 30th in the world.

Shields now has eight NAIA titles and 13 All-America honors. She was named NAIA Track Outstanding Performer of the Meet and co-MVP.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
