CLAREMONT, CA. – The Pomona-Pitzer men's track and field team hosted the Collegiate All Comers Invitational at Strehle Track on Saturday, competing after several Division I, II, and III programs across the state as well as several unaffiliated athletes from around the world like Japan and Mexico. Going against some of the top athletes in the nation, the Sagehens managed to deliver spectacular results, especially in the distance events.
The Sagehens swept the top-four spots in the one mile run as Peter Davis took first at 4:16.48, the sixth fastest mark in Sagehen History. Andy Reischling took second at 4:20.33 and Owen Woo followed in third at 4:22.49. Kellen Browning took fourth at 4:23.23. Three other runners from the program managed to take the top-10, including Julian Degroot-Lutzner in sixth (4:25.49), Carter Floyd in ninth (4:26.37), and Daniel Rosen in 10th (4:26.68).
Ethan Hardacre also impressed in the jumps, taking third in the long jump at 22 feet and 5.25 inches and in the triple jump at 45 feet and 1.74 inches.
Over in the javelin, Calvin Aylward took third, reaching a mark of 191 feet and five inches.
This meet was another opportunity for our guys to practice competing," said Head Coach Jordan Carpenter. "Overall, I thought it was a good day for Pomona-Pitzer track and field and a good showing at our first home meet of the year. There is definitely some work to be done before we get into our conference schedule, but I have been pleased with our overall depth this year and how the guys have competed thus far."
Up Next: The Sagehens will head across the street to compete in the CMS Rossi Relays on Saturday, February 24 at 10:00 a.m.
