Men's Track & Field: No. 5 Sagehens Finish 5-3 In SCIAC Multi Dual

EAGLE ROCK, CA. – In their final multi-dual of the season, the No. 5 Pomona-Pitzer Men's Track & Field Team saw several athletes reach remarkable achievements at Jack Kemp Stadium. Competing against Chapman University, Cal Lutheran University, Occidental College, and Claremont-Mudd-Scripps, the Sagehens went 2-2 at the meet to bring their dual record to 5-3.

"The goal today was to get at least two more dual meet wins to put ourselves in a position to win the championship at the end of the month," said Head Coach Jordan Carpenter. "I thought we had a very solid day as a group and are in a good spot heading into the championship portion of the season."

In the 100 Meter Dash, Daniel Tamkin ran his best time of the season, taking third overall with a time of 10.93 seasons. Nick Marsano impressed in the 200m Dash at 22.41 seconds and later took fourth in the 400m at 49.76 seconds.

Dante Paszkeicz posted the third-best time in the nation for the 800m Run at 1:52.76. He won first place at the meet and holds the seventh-fastest time in Pomona-Pitzer History. The Sagehens took third through ninth in the 1500m Run, with Paul McKinley leading the pack at 4:00.19. Carter Stripp was right behind him at 4:01.63 while Kellen Browning was fifth at 4:04.42.

In the 4x400m Relay, the Sagehens took third as Alexander Bartone, Tamkin, Paszkeicz, and Marsano combined for a time of 3:22.30.

Evan Johnson tied for first in the High Jump with a personal best mark of 6-4.75 (1.95m).

"First year Evan Johnson continues to impress as he competes across four events each meet," said Coach Carpenter. "He has been working really hard with his high jump so it was awesome to see that payoff with a massive new personal best clearance in that event."

Elliot Raskin placed second in the Pole Vault at 14-3.25 (4.35m). In the throws, Warren Hosseinion took third at 41-5.75 (12.64m) while Theodore Bazakas took third in the Discus Throw at 128-0 (39.02m).

Up Next: The Sagehens will suit up for the postseason as they head across the street to Fritz Burns Stadium at Claremont-Mudd-Scripps for the SCIAC Championships on Saturday, April 27 to Sunday, April 28 at 2:00 p.m.
