Personal bests and regional qualifiers highlight Sacramento State Open
SACREMENTO, Calif. – Personal bests and regional qualifiers highlighted the Sacramento State Open as the No. 7 BYU men’s track and field team and the No. 35 women’s team competed at Hornet Stadium on Saturday.
“I think this was a good meet,” head coach Ed Eyestone said. “We accomplished some of our goals – to improve our regional marks – and saw athletes who have been on the outside looking in punch their ticket to regionals.”
BYU secured the top four spots in the 3000m steeplechase. Porter Reddish finished first (8:43.00), Garrett Marsing followed in second (8:55.18), Cade Perry came in third (9:07.33) and Alex Hedquist rounded out the group in fourth (9:18.76). Reddish and Marsing’s finishes were both personal bests and regional qualifying times.
Jacob Foutz threw a new personal record in the hammer throw at 61.19m.
Tomi Adegoke finished first in the long jump while earning a personal best mark of 7.50m.
Clark Brown finished second in the 200m with a time of 21.01.
Sarah Musselman secured her regional qualifying time in the 3000m steeplechase and earned a new personal best with her first place finish (10:25.99).
Karina Haymore ran a collegiate best in the 800m with her time of 2:09.06. Taylor Cox finished right behind her to earn a PR (2:10.64).
“We had nice performances all around,” Eyestone said.
