STANFORD, Calif. - Melanise Chapman's school record in the 100-meter dash and Alycia Cridebring's in the 5,000 led strong Aggie showings in those events, while Katie Fry set a program mark in the steeplechase, highlighting UC Davis' showing at the Stanford Track and Field Invitational on Friday.

Chapman had the fastest time in the 100 prelims, crossing in 11.61 seconds and breaking her own record of 11.67 set at last year's NCAA Regional meet. Just one race later on Friday, speedster teammate Ashley Marshall made a run at the new record, crossing in 11.65 seconds and moving two spots to No. 2 all-time at UC Davis.

Cridebring led a similar effort for UC Davis in her section of the 5,000 during the early evening, finishing a close second in a school-record 16:06.44 to Notre Dame's Molly Seidel, who won in 16:05.33. Cridebring's time, an impressive nearly 24-second PR, broke Olympian Kim Conley's 2009 school record of 16:17.51.

All-American Sarah Sumpter also turned in a classic performance on Friday night, finishing fourth in 16:09.83, also well under Conley's record and a PR for her by 17 seconds.

Fry turned in the final school record at the high-caliber meet with her debut in the 3,000 steeplechase. Fry, who is already on Aggie top-10 lists for the 800 and 1,500, added the steeple to her resumè with her sixth-place time of 10:16.96. She bested Caitlin Fitzgerald's previous mark of 10:22.69, set at the 2011 regional meet.

 

 

Another strong performance came from senior Lauren Wallace who finished second in one of the higher-rated sections of the 1,500. Wallace was seventh in 4:22.35, a mark that makes her No. 3 all-time at UC Davis in her first appearance on that list.

On the men's side, senior Ethan Ostrom was fourth in the invitational pole vault, clearing 16-feet, 10.75 inches while Matthew Bender was sixth in the collegiate discus at 157-04. Maurice Spikes finished in a tie for fourth in the collegiate high jump with a mark of 6-5.

"The Stanford meet mark the opening of the invitational season, and with it comes both the opportunity and expectation for our best athletes to step up and perform," said Aggie coach Drew Wartenburg. "Today, a core of veteran athletes took advantage of the chance to face good competition by producing some outstanding performances, producing school records, personal-bests and solid opening marks in their signature events."

Kayla Carter was fifth in the 100 hurdle prelims in 14.06, advancing to Saturday's final while Kellie Grigg was fifth in the 400 hurdles in 1:01.61, close to her PR. Praise Adesida added a third-place finish in her shot put flight, posting a mark of 46-4.25, just one inch from her career best.

UC Davis also sent several athletes to the San Francisco State Distance Carnival with Trevor Ehlenbach turning in a 1:51.58 for the 800, barely off the Aggies' all-time list. Miguel Aceves captured the two-mile run in 9:39.30. Kaio Sena (50.38) was fourth in the 400 for another highlight.

"The San Francisco Distance Carnival also offers good fields and the chance for a number of other athletes to face competition as we enter the month of April," said Wartenburg. "A smaller group overall returns to the track and field on Saturday to finish off the weekend with day two of the Stanford meet while launching us into four solid weeks of competition that await."
