DAVIS, Calif. - Junior Brian Thomas captured both the men's 200-meter and 400-meter races while senior Rianna Goins ran the fifth-fastest women's quarter in school history, highlighting UC Davis action at the Aggie Open outdoor track & field meet at the Woody Wilson Track Saturday. The Aggie women won the six-team competition with a total of 237 points, while the UC Davis men bested three other scoring teams with a 295 total.


Overall, Thomas accounted for two of 15 total UC Davis event wins on the day. He posted a winning 48.03 in the 400 to lead a 1-2-3 Aggie sweep that also included Alex Grigoriev (48.52) and Ryan Hoffman (48.65), then ran a wind-hindered 21.95 in the first heat of the 200 later in the afternoon. Thomas was the only runner in the four heats to break the 22-second barrier, despite a 2.1 meters per second headwind.


Goins went 54.84 in the women's 400, becoming just the fifth woman in school history to break the 55-second barrier in the event. She was one of four Aggies to improve their standings among the program's all-time Top 10 lists. Senior Danielle Steffen and Stasia Kubicki each cleared 3.90 meters, or 12 feet, 9.5 inches in the pole vault. That moves both athletes up to No. 6 in UC Davis history, one week after posting marks of 3.80 meters (12-5.5) at the Cal Opener. Steffen won the event with Kubicki finishing second based on attempts.


Morgan Dutra, already the school's No. 8 hammer thrower, improved on her personal best to 52.54 meters (172-4), roughly two inches behind Sarah Hussey's No. 7 mark set in 2013. Also in the event was senior Michaela Mundt, who already ranks second among all-time Aggie hammer throwers. Her first-place effort of 57.74m (189-5) fell just shy of her PR of 57.88m, set at last year's Big West Conference championship meet. The hammer and javelin throws took place on Friday afternoon as a prelude to Saturday's full schedule.


Freshman Emem Ibekwe won the women's triple jump with a leap of 12.02m (39-5.25). Only six Aggies have ever beaten the 12-meter threshold in history, but Ibekwe's mark had a very slight wind assistance of 2.2 mps. Her best wind-legal effort of 11.58 (38-0), just missing a spot in the school's all-time leaderboard.


Other Aggie winners on the women's side included Natsumi McGee in the 100 dash (11.95), Jazmen Bunch leading a 1-2-3 trifecta with McGee and Mikaela Adolphus in the 200 (24.75), Emma Redick in the 400 hurdles (1:00.99), and Breanna Standifer in the discus throw (46.67m/153-1). Among the UC Davis men, Steven Childs captured the long jump (7.23m/23-8.75) and joined Hoffman, Grigoriev and Antony Ardis in the 4x100 relay (41.68). Basil Okoroike (11.02) edged Childs for the victory in the 100 dash, Jordon Rushing captured the 2,000 steeplechase (6:02.97), and Greg Richardson took down the shot put (15.76m/51-8.5).


UC Davis continues its young outdoor season at Sacramento State's Hornet Invitational on March 17 and 18.
