CMS Women's Track and Field Finishes Busy Weekend at Bryan Clay

AZUSA, Calif. - Riley Capuano capped off a busy weekend for the Claremont-Mudd-Scripps women's track and field team at the Bryan Clay Invitational at Azusa Pacific late Saturday night, earning the 14th best time in Division III this season in the 1500 meters with a 4:33.25.

CMS was in action at four different meets on Friday and Saturday, including the Bryan Clay Invitational, the Beach Invitational at Long Beach State, the Leopard Distance Carnival at La Verne, and a SCIAC Multi-Dual, hosted by Whittier. 

Capuano improved on her PR in the 1500, which ranks eighth in CMS history. The Athenas actually have three of the top 14 in the country in the 1500 so far this year, with Natalie Bitetti ranking second with a CMS-record 4:26.59, and Laura Zimmer ranking sixth with a 4:31.34.

At the SCIAC Multi-Dual at Whittier, Antonia Hekster finished in first in the hammer throw, and Emily Kendrick won the steeplechase. Hekster's throw was 152 feet, five inches (46.45), while Kendrick finished the steeplechase in 12:06.63. 

Revere Schmidt competed in the steeplechase at the La Verne Distance Carnival and finished in 11:26.78 for a new PR, which ranks 43rd in Division III. Hannah Weaver also took almost 15 seconds off of her PR with an 11:34.99, passing her previous best of 11:49.07 set earlier this year at the first SCIAC Multi-Dual. 

Madeline Seifert entered the pole vault at the Beach Invitational, clearing 11'10", just off her season's best of 11'11.25" which ranks 24th in the nation. 

CMS will be action this week at the Mt. SAC Relays, before competing at the SCIAC Championships in two weeks, where the Athenas will try to defend their league title.
