CLAREMONT, CA – Sarah Wright concluded her decorated Caltech track and field career by re-setting the school's heptathlon record at the ClaremontMuddScripps Classic.
The senior scored 4201 points which surpassed her previous school record of 4109 she set at the CSUN multi-event two months ago. In addition to her school record, her total score is an NCAA provisional qualifying score.
She started the event with the 100 meter hurdles. Her time of 15.94 was nearly a full second faster than her time in that same event during the CSUN heptathlon in March. Wright followed that by clearing the bar at 4' 9 1/2" in the high jump.
During the third event on the first day of competition, she set a personal best mark in the shot put. Her throw of 33' 3 3/4" was 16 inches farther than her previous high. Wright concluded the opening day by running the 200 meter dash in 26.96 which was faster than her previous March time.
The second day of competition started with the long jump where she lept 15' 10 1/4". During the javelin throw she increased her distance from her CSUN distance by over six feet as she recorded a throw of 108'6". The final event saw her clock a time of 2:37.77 as she clinched the school record.
