Woody Wilson Classic Complete Results (C/O)

DAVIS, Calif. --
The UC Davis track and field team found success at the Woody Wilson Track and Toomey Field on Friday and Saturday, finishing the Woody Wilson Classic with a total of 14 top place finishes. Out of those 14 top performances, six of them were either placed in or bumped up in the UC Davis record book.

On Friday, the first day of the home event, Michael Pertusati and Cody Holt took away the first and second place titles in the men's hammer throw. Pertusati's 53.34m/175-0 throw put him in sixth in the UC Davis record book, while Holt's 52.73m/173-0 throw was good for a seventh place spot in the all-timers.

For the remainder of the field events, which took place on the second day of the home event, senior pole vaulter Marc Toney finished in first for the second time in as many weekends with a 5.00-16-4.75 measurement, while Steven Childs dominated in the men's long jump yet again with a 7.56m/24-9.75 leap. In the men's triple jump, Drew Xandrine-Anderson's 15.80m/51-10 measurement replaced his previous personal best of 15.78m/51-9.25, while T.K. Dodd's 15.30m/50-2.5 jump ranks as the seventh best in UC Davis history.

Pertusati also earned himself a 10th place spot in the UC Davis record book with a 16.29m/53-5.5 shot put throw.

Highlighting the top performers in the field events on the women's squad, Morgan Bertsch and Katie Toole took away the top two spots with 1.70m/5-7 high jumps. In the women's triple jump, it was Sydney Holmes that received the first-place title with a 12.00m/39-4.5 measurement, which now ranks seventh in Aggie history.

For the running events, the men dominated in both the 4x100 and 4x400 relays, finishing both in first with times of 40.74 and 3:14.70, respectively. Among other top running performances on the men's squad, Kyle Clancy and Jonathan Perry placed in first and second in the men's 110 hurdles with times of 14.52 and 14.80, respectively, while Brian Thomas led the Aggie contingent of five in the men's 800 with a time of 1:51.68. Lastly, junior distance runner Jordy Ceja garnered a first-place finish in the men's 5000 with a 15:13.99 clock time.

Among other highlights, Nigel Burnett finished in second in both the men's 100 and men's 200 with times of 10.84 and 21.93, respectively, while Steven Childs finished directly behind his teammate in the men's 100 with a 10.90 dash.

On the women's squad for the running events, Kieana Butler and Kierra Davis both garnered first-place titles in the women's 100 and women's 200, respectively; however, Butler's 11.60 time replaced both her previous personal best of 11.81, and moved herself up three spots in the Aggie record book to now occupy the third fastest 100 time in the Aggie all-timers.

The UC Davis track and field team returns to action next weekend (Apr. 20-21) as they make a trip down to Southern California to participate in Long Beach State's Beach Relays meet.
