The Wildcats hosted the Linfield Jenn Boyman Memorial Invitational on April 2 and came out strong with top results in preparation for the Northwest Conference Championship, although team scores were not tallied for conference.

One of the top finishers was junior Catherine Street, who set a Linfield and conference record in the pole vault. Street was also named Track and Field Student Athlete of the Week by the NWC.

Other first-place finishers included senior Chelsea Machida in the high jump and freshman Anna LaBeaume in the shot put.

On the men’s side, there were top-three finishers at the meet. Freshman Nick Turner finished second in the 100 meter run, and sophomore Lester Maxwell finished second in the 800. Eric Weinbender finished third in the 1500 meter race.

The ’Cats will next compete at 10 a.m. April 9 at the Pacific Luau Meet in Forest Grove, Ore.
