Mens Track & Field
Menlo College at, Hornet Invite
Date of competition: Sunday, March 19, 2017
The Menlo College track and field had its second qualifier for the upcoming NAIA National Championship meet.
Jonnythan Munkholm hit the automatic qualifying mark in the triple jump, with a seventh place overall finish in a competitive field that included five D-I athletes in the top six at Sacramento State. Munkholm joins Elijah Noel, who qualified at the De Anza Open in the long jump.
"In a big, very competitive meet, Jonny stepped up on his last jump of prelims to hit a huge personal best," Menlo coach Dan Noel said. "We are very proud of how he competed, and of all the hard work that brought him to this point."
Neal also competed in the triple jump, placing 12th overall and Elijah Redding-Moment, who placed 13th with a personal record, his second of the day as he also PR'd in the long jump.
Other personal/seas bests were attained by Joe Alvarez and Hector Salas-Selem in the hammer throw and the men's 4x4 who hit a season best time. In other relay action, the Men's 4x1 placed ninth overall. In the distance event, Richard Runkle-Edens hit a lifetime best in the 800m and Lucrezia Povero and Atarpreet Dhariwal did the same in the 1500.
Another set of firsts was the trio of Menlo females who competed in the heptathlon for the first time this season. Anisah Smith and Aubrie Usui were competing in their first ever heptathlon while Dorian Aberouette was take part in her first this season.
