Chico State’s track and field teams split action over the weekend, part of the team was in Turlock for the Stanislaus Multi and the others were in Davis for the Woody Wilson Classic.

Stanislaus Multi

In the Stanislaus Multi, the men participated in the decathlon, while the women participated in the heptathlon.

The Chico State men swept the first three spots of the decathlon as Lane Andrews, Corning High alum Alex Davila and Dylan Smith finished first, second and third respectively.

The Wildcat men finished first in eight of the ten events.

Lane Andrews finished first in the long jump, 400 meter dash, and the 1500 meter run. Alex Davila finished first in the shot put and second in two other events. Dylan Smith finished first in the discuss, pole vault, and javelin. The other first place finish from the men was Randall LeBlanc in the 110 meter hurdles.

The women were led by freshman Adelae Fredeen who finished seventh.

Fredeen finished in the top-5 in the 100 meter hurdles, 200 meter dash, and the 800 meter run.

Woody Wilson Classic

In the Woody Wilson Classic in Davis, the Wildcats had a handful of first place finishes.

For the women Megan Farrell and Erica Davis took first and second in the pole vault. This is Farrell’s third first place finish in the pole vault this season.

Another first place finisher was Jenavieve Turner in the 400 meter hurdles with a time of 1 minute and 1.39 seconds.
