DAVIS, Calif. —
Coming off a strong outdoor-season kickoff meet at the Cal Opener, the UC Davis track and field team remains at home to host the annual Aggie Open meet at the Woody Wilson Track and Toomey Field, the first of two home meets this Friday and Saturday (Mar. 9-10).

Aside from host UC Davis, student-athletes from Menlo College, Modesto, Pacific, Sacramento State, Sac City College, Santa Rosa, Shasta, as well as a handful of track and field club teams are scheduled to make an appearance at this event.

Friday’s portion of the two-day meet features the men’s and women’s hammer throw events, which will take place out at the hammer ring near Schaal Aquatics Center, followed by the men’s and women’s javelin throws an hour later, which will be located on the opposite end of campus at the Woody Wilson Track. Saturday’s portion of the open begins with the men’s long jump and high jump at 9 a.m., while the women’s 5,000 begins the running event slate at 9 a.m.

Last weekend at the Cal Opener, which took place at the Edwards Stadium in Berkeley, Calif., UC Davis came away from their season-opening event with three first-place relay titles, and 11 first-place individual winners: Jaleah Calvillo (women’s high jump), Marc Toney (men’s pole vault), Steven Childs (men’s long jump), Drew Xandrine-Anderson (men’s triple jump), Kyle Clancy (men’s 110 hurdles), Mikaela Adolphus (women’s 400), Kieana Butler (women’s 100), Nigel Burnett (men’s 100), Anthony Easter (men’s 400 hurdles), Dante Berggren (men’s 200).

This was the second year in-a-row that Childs took away the win in the men’s long jump event at the Cal Opener, while Easter’s UC Davis debut mark of 52.37 seconds in the 400 hurdles is good for a seventh-place spot in the Aggie record book.

Among other highlights from last weekend’s season opener, Adolphus garnered the team’s first Big West Athlete of the Week honor after scoring top-three finishes in the women’s 400, women’s 200, and the 4x400 relay.

The UC Davis track and field team is scheduled to host one more meet during the 2018 campaign, which will be the annual Woody Wilson Classic on Apr. 13-14.
