REDLANDS, Calif. — T.J. Randall added another first-place finish and the University of La Verne men's track and field team added three more All-SCIAC performances on the final day of the 2018 SCIAC Track and Field Championships.
Randall, who led the Leopards on day one of the meet with a win in the hammer thrown and a second-place finish in the discus, made his way onto the podium for the third time. The junior won the shot put with a throw of 48-09.50 to win the event for the second year in a row.
Matthew Pedroza finished with a season-best throw in the shot put, reaching a distance of 42-00 to finish fifth.
Freshman Anthony Hamilton led the way for the Leopards in the jumps. In a close competition in the high jump with Occidental's Austin DeWitz, the pair both cleared 2.02m (6-07.50), and scratched at 2.07m. Since DeWitz cleared 6-07.50 in fewer attempts than Hamilton, DeWtiz came away with the title with Hamilton taking second. Hamilton set a personal record in the event and moved up to fourth in the Leopards' record book.
Kyle Ambat earned his second All-SCIAC honors on day two. The senior took third in the triple jump with a leap of 46-07.50. The junior took third in the long jump on day one.
The Leopards finished the meet in fifth place. Pomona-Pitzer claimed the team title.Follow ULV Athletics on Twitter Like us on Facebook Watch on Youtube Follow us on Instagram
