Six more athletes finished with potential regional qualifying marks as the BYU track and field team dominated the San Diego Aztec Invitational over the weekend. The Cougars have tallied 13 athletes with such marks so far this season.

BYU track and field coach Mark Robison was proud of the Cougars’ performances, despite the low number of participating athletes.

“I thought for the number of kids we brought down here, the meet went very well,” Robsion said. “We had six qualify for regionals and we had half as many people perform as last week.”

Anginae Monteverde placed third in the pole-vault with a mark of 4.17 meters while Sierra Hansen took fourth with 4.07 meters. Stephen French placed fourth on the men’s side with a personal best vault of 4.75 meters.

Tatenda Tsumba took first place in the 200 meter dash with a time of 21.41.

Madison Pachner took first in the women’s discus and Jefferson Jarvis earned second in the men’s discus with a personal best throw.

“I thought the performances that people had went really well,” Robsion said. “If we can just keep going and do a little better each week, then we are going to be in great shape.”

The Cougars will split up to compete at the Texas Relays and Stanford Invitational this weekend.
