The Chico State Wildcats track and field team placed well in various events at the Distance Carnival and Twilight Invitational Saturday at University Stadium. There was a bit of rain at the beginning of the day but eventually, the skies cleared up for the day’s events.

The Wildcats events started with runners finishing in each of the top three spots in the women’s 100-meter relay. Jordyn Dorsey earned the first place spot and was followed up by Isabella Moyer and Lyndsey Settle.

Chico dominated in the women’s 1500 meter run and had four runners in the top 5 positions. Nicole Anthony got first place with a time of 4:39.32 and earned the Wildcats 10 points.

Chico also placed first in the women’s 400-meter hurdles as Sheena Blackwell posted a time of 1:02.75 to secure another 10 points for the team.

The Wildcats not only succeeded on the track but on the field as well. Jessica Toombs and Jessica Lee both placed in the top five in the women’s long jump and Alec Dronen and Anthony Kerrigan placed in the third and fourth spots in the men’s long jump.

The team has found consistent success this season in the long jump on both the men’s and women’s sides.

“We’re just working to make the finals and we have a lot of runners that can get up to 22 or 23 feet to get us there,” long jumper for Chico State, Jahi Corbin, said.

Corbin had a jump of 6.47 meters and the Wildcats scored a total of 11 points in the men’s long jump.

Chico men’s 4×100 meter dash team also placed first in their event. Colton and Joshua Cummings along with Isaiah Roybal and Hasani Barrett combined for a time of 41.82 seconds, edging out Butte College by just over a half of a second.

The Wildcats have been performing well as of late and are about halfway through their season. The team will look to continue their quest for the NCAA Championships when they travel to Stanislaus State for a meet on April 11 and 12.
