Claremont, Calif. – Senior Erin Delaria (pictured) tied the Sagehen record in the pole vault to highlight the Women’s Track and Field performance at the annual Pomona-Pitzer Invitational on Saturday at Strehle Track.

Delaria’s jump of 3.35 meters (10.99 feet) matched the mark set by Mica Fein in 2009 and earned her a top 10 finish in the event, which featured competitors from professional clubs, international teams and collegiate competitors from all divisions.

Several other Sagehens moved up the Pomona-Pitzer all-time record books as well. Sophomore Maya Weigel moved up to second all-time in the 1500 with a time of 4:32.55, which placed her third out of 87 runners at the event. She also ran a personal best in the 800 meters as well, moving up to fifth all-time with a 2:17.18.

Junior Ailene Nugyen competed in the 400 meters for the first time in her career and finished with a 58.62, which is seventh all-time at Pomona-Pitzer. Nguyen also came in third overall in the long jump (first among collegiate competitors) with a jump of 18 feet, 7 3/4 inches, which was one centimeter shy of her own school record.

Freshman Prisca Diala moved into third in the long jump as well, clearing 18 feet (18 feet, 1/4 inch), placing fifth at the event. Diala was also fifth in the triple jump with a jump of 36 feet, four inches. Senior Ellen Yamasaki had a throw of 119 feet, eight inches in the hammer, which moved her into eighth place all-time at Pomona-Pitzer.

The Sagehens will be back in action next weekend for their final SCIAC Quad meet of the season, which will take place at Occidental beginning at 11 a.m.
