Bowman's Throwing Wins Highlight Opening OIDFE Challenge for CMS Men's Track and Field

CLAREMONT, Calif. - Jason Bowman won both throwing events, and five different track runners earned individual wins, as the Claremont-Mudd-Scripps men's track and field team opened the 2022 spring season at its annual OIDFE Challenge at the Burns Track Complex. 

Bowman won a tight battle in the shot put, with a throw of 12.93 meters, to just edge Sean Longley of Chapman with 12.92, and won big in the weight throw with a top distance of 15.42 meters, eclipsing the second-place finisher by 10 feet. John Horan was second in the pole vault with a 4.40 meter clearance.

Jamie Cockburn earned the win in the 200 meters in 22.20, taking it by .28 over Cooper Tirado of Whittier, while Massimo Bertini of the Stags was third in 22.70. Bertini took the 400, meanwhile, in 49.19, the only runner to break 50 seconds, while Colin Scanlon was third in 52.17. 

Stevie Steinberg won a tight race over three CSU San Marcos runners in the 3000, finishing in 8:40.41 to win by just over one second. Henry Pick (4:10.68) and Miles Christensen (4:20.27) finished 1-2 in the mile, while Kai Dettman won an 800 race in which the Stags had all 13 competitors, finishing in 1:55.68. 

In the 60-yard dash, Christian Campbell barely finished second behind Justice Chima of CSU San Marcos by three-hundredths of a second (7.01 to 7.04), while Quincey Williams and Nick Teresi were third and fourth in a dead head in 7.24 seconds. 

The 4x400 relay team earned an easy win, behind Scanlon, Bertini, Campbell and Cockburn, finishing in 3:21.08. 

CMS will be back in action in two weeks when it crosses the street to participate in the Pomona-Pitzer All Comers Meet on Feb. 12.
