Cal Poly Pomona hosted the Cal Poly Pomona Preview meet at the Hilmer Lodge Stadium at Mt. San Antonio College. Multiple colleges participated at the meet, including Cal State Los Angeles, UC San Diego, Mt. SAC and San Bernardino Valley College.

On the women’s side, fourth-year kinesiology student Tiffany Gray excelled in the shot put event, earning a 47-3.5 for a “B” provisional mark. Gray’s results are the best since 1995.

Second-year animal science student Sarah Reagan transcended the hurdles and obtained first place in the 400-meter event, with an impressive time of 1:03.29. Reagan also placed second in the 100-meter hurdles with another impressive time of 15.09. Reagan’s results in the 400-meter event made her 10th in the Broncos’ all-time leaderboard for hurdles.

Fourth-year kinesiology student Lizette Huerta once againexcelled on the track, finishing first in the 3,000-meter event with a time of 10:08.82. Huerta placed 10th all-time in CPP’s history for that event. Second-year kinesiology student Symone Booker also had an impressive finish. Booker obtained second place in the 800-meter event, capturing a time of 2:22.33.

After being deemed the California Collegiate Athletic Association Athlete of the Week, fourth-year Kinesiology Regina Lopez took second place in the 1,500-meter run with the time of 4:42.44.

On the men’s side of the team, first-year biology student Brennon Koryta succeeded in the 1,500-meter run, placing first with an impressive time of 3:54.96. The rest of the long distance runners also excelled in the 3,000-meter run as the Broncos captured nine out of the top 10 spots for distance running. Sophomore business administration student Mark Huizar won the race with a speedy time of 8:28.93.

“It is a pretty good race overall for me and our team,” said Huizar on the day’s results. “We dominated the race at this track meet. We know we could do it.”

Huizar thinks he is going to have a good track season.

“I am ready to transition to speed, and I am definitely ready for racing,” said Huizar.

Fourth-year aerospace engineering student Justin Ellerbee once again accomplished in the pole vault event. Ellerbee obtained an impressive height of 16-1.25, earning a “B” provisional mark. In the previous years, Ellerbee has excelled in pole vault: just last year, he succeeded with All-American honors when he competed for Nationals.

The Broncos will compete once again this Friday at the Cal State L.A. Invite.
