Westmont Men’s Track and Field cruised to a second straight GSAC Championship with a dominating performance on the field. The Warriors won five of the eight field events in addition to the decathlon and the 4 x 800.
The Westmont men tallied 246.5 points, outpacing second place Menlo who tallied 138.25. Vanguard claimed third place with 126.5 and Biola finished fourth with 84.
Westmont Women’s Track and Field narrowly missed repeating as GSAC Championship. Biola finished first with 286 points. The Warriors were just a point and one-half behind with 284.5. Third place went to Vanguard (80.5 points) while William Jessup took fourth (73 points).
Biola came from behind in the final two events to snatch the women’s title from Westmont. Going into the 5,000 meter race, Westmont held a 4.5 point lead. However, Biola’s Stephanie Croy (17:55.05) took second place and led three other Eagles to a top eight-finish, resulting in 18 points for Biola. Westmont scored eight points in the event behind a third place finish by Jessica Meyers (18:05.90) and a seventh place finish by Emily William (18:33.06).
As a result, Biola led by 4.5 points going into the final race, the women’s 4 x 400 meter relay. In order for Westmont to overtake Biola, the Warriors would have needed to finish first and see the Eagles finish no higher than fifth or be disqualified.
