McMINNVILLE, Ore. – Winning nine combined events, the Wildcat men and women capped off the home track and field season at the Linfield Open Saturday afternoon at Maxwell Field.
The most noteworthy performance of the day belonged to Morgunn Ewing, who threw a massive PR in the javelin. The junior won with a toss of 193 feet, 3 inches (58.91m) that was almost eight feet farther than his previous best effort and moved him up to No. 18 on the NCAA Division III season performance list and to No. 9 in the Linfield record books.
Pacing the sprinting corps, Brenna Stinson topped the field in the 100 (season-best 12.80) and 200 (26.92) meters. Haley Pattishal was second in the 200 (27.58) and third in the 100 (13.23) while Lindsey Hall was runner-up in the 400 (1:02.77) and third in the 100 (28.81), both in career-best times.
Madison Gladding (Sr., Roseburg, Ore.) and Natasha Rowland went 2-3 in the 100 hurdles, clocking in at 16.97 and 17.92 seconds, respectively. Bryce Evans and Clay Monahan achieved the same feat in the men's short race, with Evans finishing second (17.25) and Monahan taking third (17.96). In the 400 hurdles, Gladding placed third (1:11.10) while Monahan took second (1:02.01).

Anna LaBeaume won the discus with a maximum toss of 132 feet, 11 inches (40.51) while taking second in the hammer (148-03/45.19m) and third in the shot put (35-06.50/10.83m). Teammate Courtney Alley was runner-up in the shot put (38-0075/11.60m) and took third in the discus (111-01/33.87m).

Both were career-best throws. Scott Anderson was first in the shot put (41-05.75/12.64m) with teammate Jake Evans (39-02.50/11.95m) one place behind. Rounding out the throwing contingent was Nick Fairhart, who took second in the hammer (159-07/48.64m).
