CMS Men's Track and Field Wins Four Events at Rossi Relays

CLAREMONT, Calif. - The Claremont-Mudd-Scripps men's track and field team saw its 4x800 relay team take first place, while Kumi Selva (triple jump), Sarath Kakani (shot put) and George Kruger (javelin) each won field events at the annual Rossi Relays held at the Burns Track Complex on Saturday. 

Daniel Voyles, Ellis DelVecchio, Lou DeLano and Hayden Beauchemin took first in the 4x800 relay with a time of 7:42.72, marking the second best time in program history, just off the 4:40.94 record that has held since 2007. 

Selva was the winner in the triple jump with a distance of 12.74 meters, defeating two jumpers from Pomona-Pitzer by almost a half-meter. Kakani earned the shot put with a throw of 16.08 meters, while Kruger won the javelin with a throw of 51.89. Jason Bowman was also second in the hammer among collegiate competitors. 

The Stags' sprint medley relay also had a strong showing with a 1:32.31 to place second, as Evan Siegel, Emmett Stralka, Colin Scanlon and Nick Teresi.

The Stags came in second and third in the 3000 meters with Adam Sage clocking a 8:19.39 to finish nine seconds off the winning time from a DII runner from Cal Poly Pomona, while Nick Taubenheim was third in 8:24.00

Joshua Martinez came in second in the 110-meter hurdles with a 14.95, falling behind only a runner from Division II Cal Poly Pomona. The 4x400 relay came in third, as Scanlon, DelVecchio, Teresi and Martinez were behind only a pair of DII schools (Cal Poly Pomona, and CSU Los Angeles). 

CMS will next be in action when it competes in the first SCIAC Multi-Dual on Saturday at Occidental.
