Final Stats

DAVIS, Calif. - Senior Sarah Sumpter dominated the field to lead a 1-2-3 Aggie sweep in the women's 5,000, highlighting UC Davis action at the Aggie Open season-opening track and field meet at the Woody Wilson Track Saturday. She was one of five individuals to pick up an event victory for the two Aggie teams, which also claimed three of the four relay races.

Sumpter's time of 16 minutes, 33.91 seconds ranks third in school history, close behind three-time NCAA Division II distance champion Patti Gray. It is the fastest women's 5K since Kaitlin Gregg went 16:21.99. Current UC Davis assistant Kim Conley set the school record of 16:17.51 nearly three years ago.

Sumpter finished well ahead of teammate Krista Drechsler, whose time of 17:01.99 was in turn more than 47 seconds after than UC Davis sophomore Hilary Teaford's 17:49.02.

On the women's side, Melanise Chapman captured the 200-meter dash at 24.58, Kayla Carter battled a 3.2 meters per second headwind to win the 100 hurdles in 14.42, and Lauren Radke hit a personal record of 3.86 meters (12 feet, 8 inches) to tie for the pole vault victory. Radke already ranks third in Aggie women's outdoor history, moving herself closer to No. 2 Gaea Schwaebe.

Furthermore, UC Davis captured both relay races during the meet. The 4x100 squad compiled a 46.86 time to edge Sacramento State, then the 4x400 team went 3:50.47 to best the Academy of Art's 3:53.13 clocking.

Among the Aggie men, Karl Moran crossed in 53.49 to win the 400 hurdles by a half-second. He then helped the 4x400 relay assemble a victorious time of 3:16.63, almost two full seconds ahead of American River College's `A' team.

 

 

A trio of UC Davis male athletes also hit key PRs in the opening weekend. Javelin thrower Brock Bennett improved to a best of 64.04 meters, or 210-1. He jumped past Dave Moore to move into fourth in school outdoor history. Robert Neely posted a wind-hindered 7.23 meters (23-8.75) to tie fellow decathlete Tim Gelonek for 10th in Aggie annals. Sophomore Brandon Greenberg bettered his shot put PR by almost a foot to 52-0 (15.85m) to finish third behind former teammate Eddie Orgon.

UC Davis continues its outdoor season at the Sacramento State Hornet Open on Saturday. The Aggie Open is the last home meet until the Woody Wilson Classic on Picnic Day, April 21.
