BERKELEY, Calif. —
The UC Davis track and field squad came away with 14 first-place titles, including three first-place relay finishes, to highlight the Aggie action that took place at the Cal Opener track and field meet at Edwards Stadium on Saturday.

Starting with the field events, UC Davis left with four first-place titles, three on the men’s side, and one on the women’s side. For the first squad, Marc Toney finished with a 4.85m pole vault measurement, Steven Childs led the Aggie group of five in the long jump with a 7.12m measurement, and Drew Xandrine-Anderson took the triple jump title with a 15.22m jump, while Jaleah Calvillo represented the latter squad with a 1.63m high jump.

The remaining 10 first-place titles were received in the Aggies’ running performances. Starting with the 100m dash, first-place winners Nigel Burnett led the Aggie men’s team of eight with a time of 10.69, while Kieana Butler led the six-person Aggie lineup with a 12.06 time. For the other running dash events, Dante Berggren scored a first-place finish in the men’s 200m dash with a 21.69 time, while Mikaela Adolphus finished in first with a 55.45 400m time, which is currently tied for eighth in the school record book.

The men’s hurdles were also a success for the Aggies, as Kyle Clancy and Anthony Easter, who made his UC Davis competition debut, each went on to garner first-place titles with a 14.51 100m hurdles time, making a mark in the seventh-place spot for the all-timers, and a 52.37 400m hurdles time, which ties with the seventh-place mark in the record book, respectively.

Lastly in the relay events, both the men, with Aggie foursome Berggren, Burnett, Fourie Bernhardt, and Brian Thomas, as well as the women, which included Jazmen Bunch, Butler, Davis, and Natsumi McGee, each came away with the fastest 4x100 relay times of 41.08, which marks the new fourth-place time in school history, and 46.06, respectively. The Aggie men also received a first-place finish with a 3:16.10 4x400 relay time, earned by UC Davis quartet Berggren, Burnett, Easter, and Thomas.
