WALNUT, Calif. - Just a few events remained for the Husky track and field squads at the Mt. SAC Relays at Hilmer Lodge Stadium today. The women's 4x1 relay posted yet another Top-10 mark in the recordbooks, and James Alaka got another strong 200-meters time in the books. Results for the Beach Invitational at Cerritos College were not yet available as of Saturday night.
The Husky women's 4x1 relay just ducked under the 46-second mark, clocking 45.99 to take second in the Olympic Development heat. The team was comprised of freshman Haley Jacobson, freshman Gianna Woodruff, sophomore Kayla Stueckle, then senior Bianca Greene on the anchor. That is the new No. 9 time in school history, one day after the women's 4x4 clocked the No. 9 time as well.
Junior James Alaka ran in the invitational section of the 200-meter dash, but was a split second below his time two weeks ago, posting a time of 20.92 seconds to finish sixth.
Also of note was a great showing by former Husky Norris Frederick in the invitational long jump today. Frederick had two jumps farther than eight meters, including his sixth and final attempt which went 8.05-meters, or 26-feet and 5-inches, into a slight headwind. That will rank Frederick fourth in the U.S. this year in outdoor competition as he looks to make an Olympic push.
