FOREST GROVE, Ore. – Linfield’s Catherine Street continues to outdo herself, breaking her own school record in the pole vault for the third time this season at the Pacific Twilight meet at Lincoln Park Stadium. The two-day meet concluded Saturday.
Street’s record-breaking effort (13-5½) was good enough for second place at the meet. She finished behind Keisa Monterola of Clackamas Community College, who maxed out at 14-1¾, setting a meet record in the process.
Linfield’s junior pole vaulter remains atop the NCAA Division III standings in her event, nearly two inches better than the rest of the national field.
Other top performers on the women’s side were Chelsea Machida and Kate Shear (Sr., Knappa, Ore.). Machida tied for first in the high jump, clearing the bar at 5-1¾, and Shear was third in the javelin with a throw of 132-5.
Mimi Seeley (Sr., Redmond, Ore.) posted a collegiate-best time in the 5,000-meter run, bettering her previous time by more than six seconds. She was 10th in the event with a time of 18:11.04.
For the Wildcat men, Michael Moreland placed third in the high jump (6-4¾) and Lester Maxwell registered a season-best time in the 800, finishing sixth (1:54.09).
No team scores were compiled at the meet, which featured 25 teams and 996 total athletes.
NEXT: Linfield runners, jumpers and throwers have two more chances to qualify for the NCAA Championships. The first is at the Oregon Twilight in Eugene, beginning Friday at 3 p.m.
