REDLANDS — The Occidental men's and women's track and field teams began competition at the SCIAC Championships, hosted by Redlands on Friday.

Field events are finals on both days. All running events besides the 3,000m steeplechases and the 5,000m on Friday are prelims. Saturday is the fun day with all events crowing individual SCIAC Championships.

First Day Highlights: Zach Greenleaf won the SCIAC Championship in the men's pole vault, clearing 16 feet for the win in the event and 10 points for the men's team.

Melissa Braun took second in the women's pole vault, clearing 11-06.5 for eight points.

Jada Newkirk took third in the women's long jump with a mark of 18-06 and Sabrina Degnan took third in the women's shot put with a toss of 37-08.50, both earning six points each. 

Chris Rom-Toribio finished fourth in the men's long jump with a best of 22-08.

In distance events, Eva Townsend was third in the women's 3,000m steeplechase with a time of 11:32.64 and Austin Sankaran finished sixth in the men's 10,000m with a time of 32:06.78.

There weren't any surprises in qualifying for the men's or women's teams in running events.

All SCIAC: Top three in any individual event earns All-SCIAC honors for the athlete.

What's at Stake? The Occidental men's team is tied for second place after dual-meet competition and the women's team sits in third.

How the Meet is Scored? The meet will be scored 10-8-6-5-4-3-2-1 for all events. Nine athletes will advance to the finals in all track events. Nine athletes will advance to the finals in all field events
