Davies, Degnan Lead Top SCIAC Performers

REDLANDSCora Davies and Sabrina Degnan highlighted the Occidental women's track and field team's performance at the Redlands Invitational on Friday night.

The two seniors are each leading their feature events and performed well again.

Davies cleared 5-03 in the high jump, which is tied for the best clearance in the SCIAC so far this season. Davies has been an All-SCIAC high jumper and is looking to contend for the SCIAC Championship this season. 

Davies was on the bubble of going to the NCAA Division III National Championships last season, missing the needed height by 0.5 inches.

Degnan, arguably the current most accomplshed female athlete on Oxy's campus, did not have a great showing in the javelin with a toss of 114, but still leads the SCIAC by a comfortable margin in the event and also won on Friday. Her shot put of 39-0.5, although it was second place, is a seasonal best and ranks second in the SCIAC.

Degnan is the school record holder in the javelin and a two-time SCIAC Champion and national qualifier in the event. She's highly ranked in the other three throws in Oxy history. 

LaShauna Porter, one of Oxy's all-time top sprinters, ran 12.53 in the 100m which matches her seasonal best from the Oxy Distance Carnival on March 9 and ranks third in the SCIAC.

Porter, an All-American in the 200m, continues to run well this season.

Next Meet: Oxy is back in action at SCIAC Multi-Dual No. 2 at La Verne on March 30.
