LAGUNA NIGUEL, Calif. (Feb. 25, 2019) – Freshman Peter Kulits (Everett, Wash. / King's) of the Caltech men's track & field team has been named SCIAC Field Athlete of the Week for his latest triple jump performance at the Claremont-Mudd-Scripps Colleges-hosted Rossi Relays over the weekend.
The freshman took third-place in the triple jump at the individually-scored event and made a bound of 13.39m that was also sufficient enough to land him first among Division III competitors. Kulits' jump was also good enough to place him fifth in the Caltech Top-10, becoming the first Caltech scholar-athlete to appear on the triple jump list in 14 years.
Kulits and the Beavers will be back in action next weekend for their first SCIAC Multi-Dual of the season on Saturday, hosted by Pomona-Pitzer Colleges. Occidental College, Whittier College and Chapman University will also be competing.
