FRESNO, Calif.- The Fresno State track and field squad completed a dual meet sweep of host Mt. San Antonio College, winning convincingly on both the men's and women's sides Friday afternoon at Walnut, Calif.
The Bulldog men claimed a 123-68 victory while the women earned a 128-55 win. Fresno State claimed a first-place finish in all but five meet events (three on the men's side and two among the women).
On the men's side, two Fresno State athletes reached NCAA Regional qualifying standards. Adam Andresen notched a career-best mark of 5.05m to take first in the pole vault, equaling the NCAA mark. Brian Vazquez eclipsed the postseason bar when he threw 185-1 in the hammer.
Jesse Smith recorded two first-place finishes (100- and 200-meters) while the Bulldog 4x100 and 4x400-m relay teams crossed the line ahead of Mt. San Antonio College.
Mallory Webb threw a career-high 51.48m in the javelin, nearly surpassing the school record of 52.62m. Two other Bulldog throwers established personal-bests, as La'Sha Hill won the shot put with a mark of 49-2 and Jamie Farley took the title in the hammer throw at 176-4.
Fresno State will host the Cal-Nevada Championships next week at Warmerdam Field. Competition begins Friday, Mar. 31, for the two-day event.
