Sprinters Have Big Day at Mt. Sac
April 15, 2007
Walnut, Calif. - Kandace Wilson set a school record of 11.94 seconds in the 100 meters to pace a strong showing by the Cal State Fullerton sprint crew at the Mt. Sac Relays in Walnut over the weekend.
Wilson, normally a quartermiler, ran 11.92 to break Genia Daniels' 2001 mark of 11.98 while finishing fifth. Teammate Kimiah Hudson ran eighth and just missed Daniels' mark, finishing in 11.99.
Wilson also set a personal best in the 400 with a time of 54.51, good enough for an NCAA regional berth. Kristyne Hanberg ran a personal best 24.72 to finish 16th in the women's 200.
On the men's side, Lawrence Trice won his section and was seventh overall in the 100 in a personal best time of 10.53. He also had a personal best in the 200 at 21.46.
Teammate Chris Epstein ran the second fastest legal time in CSF history in the 200, clocking in at 21.28. Kevin Howard's school mark is 21.23.
Chase Frazier ran a personal best 48.19 to win his section in the 400 meters.
Both the men's and women's 4x100 relay teams took second. The men's team of Jon Pratter, Epstein, Marques Barosso and Trice ran 40.75 while the women's squad of Wilson, Hudson, Yewande Findley and Antonia Vega ran 46.01.
A former Titan also had a big day. Giovanni Lanaro established the Mexican national record (he has dual citizenship) with a personal best of 19 feet, 3/4 of an inch, which tied the meet record.
