Distance Runners, Hardacre Impress In Rossi Relays

CLAREMONT, CA. – The Pomona-Pitzer men's track and field team yielded several strong results at the Rossi Relays on Saturday afternoon, as multiple Sagehens broke personal bests and made their way into the school leaderboard.

"I was very pleased with the day and our efforts overall," said Head Coach Jordan Carpenter after the meet. "It was our last meet before conference competition begins and we were able to set a number of lifetime bests. I am excited to see how we stack up against some of the other teams in our conference next Saturday."

Ethan Hardacre shone in the jumps, scoring the highest among collegiate athletes in the long jump (6.91m) and triple jump (14.04m). His triple jump score was a new personal best.

"Ethan has started the season jumping very well," said Coach Carpenter. "I am thrilled to have him back competing after losing him to injury last season. He will be a big part of our success moving forward with the season."

In the 4x800 relay, the Sagehens' team of Nate Gallatin, Nick Vucovich, Kellen Browning, and Carter Floyd won the event with a time of 7:57.12. In the 3000m distance run, Andy Reischling clocked in at 8:29.58 to become the highest finisher among collegiate athletes. The Sagehens saw 12 runners finish within the top-25, 11 of whom finished below 8:50.

Nick Kapule moved up to ninth-best of all time in program history in the pole vault, scoring a clearance of 14' 1".
