Results: Woody Wilson | Beach Invitational

DAVIS, Calif. - UC Davis won four events at the Woody Wilson Classic held during Picnic Day activities on campus while Holly Tokar tied her top-10 mark in the pole vault for the Aggies who competed down south at the Beach Invitational, highlighting track and field action for the programs on Saturday.

Katherine Gallaher and Jaleah Calvillo were victorious during the Aggies’ home meet in the 1500-meter run and high jump, respectively, for the women, while Basil Okoroike won the triple jump and Shane Ryan captured the high jump for the men.

UC Davis split its squad for this weekend’s action with several heading to the Mt. SAC Relays on Friday and the Beach Invitational at Long Beach State on Saturday, and the remaining Aggies staying at home for the Woody Wilson Classic. 

Holly Tokar helped lead the highlights at Long Beach, tying her personal-best in the pole vault when she cleared 13 feet, 0.25 inches to place 15th in a highly competitive field. She cleared the height on her her second attempt before bowing out when the bar was moved to 13-6.25. Tokar’s performance tied her No.3 all-time mark from 2014 when she won the Big West championship as a freshman.

Gallaher edged teammate Olivia Goins to win the 1,500, crossing in 4:42.89, barely ahead of Goins who was timed in 4:42.96. Brynna Thigpen and Megan MacGregor were fourth and fifth, respectively. Calvillo went over the high jump bar at 5-3, setting a season-best mark and claiming another first place.

Okoroike won the triple jump with a mark of 49-08.50, narrowly missing his season-best mark of 49-10 from two weeks ago, while T.K. Dodds, Drew Xandrine-Anderson and Steven Childs grabbed the next three places. Shane Ryan brought home the Aggies’ fourth win of the day when he went a personal-best 6-8 in the high jump. He cleared the bar on his second attempt.

Other highlights from Long Beach came from Emma Redick (1:00.19), who was eighth in a field of 69 competitors in the 400 hurdles, Cody Nguyen (1:51.34), who was 18th among 118 in the 800, and Kyle Clancy, who was sixth in the high jump (6-8.75).

The Aggie men had 14 top-five finishes at the Woody Wilson Classic, including five second-place showings, while the women had 17, including four runner-up.

UC Davis returns to competition next when it travels to the Brutus Hamilton Classic and Open meets on Friday and Saturday at Cal.
