LOS ANGELES, CA – Five Caltech track and field athletes participated in one of the largest track and field events in the southern California region on Saturday afternoon.
The Occidental Invitational featured well over 1,000 participants from nearly 75 different organizations.
Highlighting the meet for Caltech was Paige Logan's effort in the shot put. For the fourth time this season she re-set her own school record. Her top throw on the afternoon of 41' 9 3/4" was nearly two-feet farther than her previous school mark.
Stephanie Reynolds ran the 1500 meter race in 4:54.54 which was the third fastest time among competitors from NCAA Division III schools. Also competing in a distance race was Juliette Becker. The junior ran the 3000 meter steeplechase in 12:15.48.
Sarah Wright competed in the 100 meter hurdle race in 16.27. The senior has one meet left in her Beaver career when she participated in the CMS multi-duals next weekend.
Eric Martin toed the line in the 800 meter race and his time of 1:57.81 was the fifth best mark among NCAA Division III schools.
