CLAREMONT, CA. – The Pomona-Pitzer Men's Track and Field Team came out of their final SCIAC Multi-Dual with one victory out of three on Saturday afternoon, taking down Caltech 151-7 but losing to Redlands 93-70 and Claremont-Mudd-Scripps 90-73.
"We had a number of highlights today and a number of our guys really stepped up and performed well to close out the multi-dual schedule," said Head Coach Jordan Carpenter. "With the conference championship just two weeks away, and having enough dual meet victories, we held out a number of our top athletes to ensure that they are healthy and fresh for the championship meet coming up. I think we have a great team this year that has a lot more depth than the teams of the past few years. I think that if we compete well at the championship meet in two weeks we will be in the mix for the SCIAC Title."
