Be it individual or team successes, the Washington University men’s and women’s track & field teams both had their share of victories this past weekend at the Washington University Select Meet at Bushyhead Track. The men’s team took first place overall out of the four schools that participated. Meanwhile, four members of the women’s team met NCAA provisional qualifying times at the meet.
Both the women’s distance medley relay and the men’s 4×400 meter relay posted new school records as the Washington University track and field squads finished in second place at the North Central College Cardinal Classic in Naperville, Ill., over the weekend. The women’s team of senior Molly Schlamb, sophomores Erica Jackey and Liz Phillips, and junior Sangeeta Hardy ran the event in 11:51.32.
Sophomore Dan Davis finally reached his automatic qualifying time for the 55-meter hurdles, while setting a new Washington University indoor record in the process with a time of 7.53 seconds, en route to another victory at Monmouth College. But Davis, who broke his own record set last week, was more excited about the meet’s implications for this season.
Led by graduate student Pierre Hoppenot, senior Chris Malaya and sophomore Dan Davis, the Washington University men’s track and field team took second place at the Rose-Hulman Engineer Invitational this weekend in Terre Haute, Ind., while the women’s team finished third.
