Cal Poly Track & Field to Compete at Three Meets in Southern California

Cal Poly Track & Field to Compete at Three Meets in Southern California

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. — The Cal Poly track & field team will return to competition with a trio of meets around Southern California this week.

The Mustangs will travel to the California Invitational (featuring a decathlon from Wednesday to Thursday at Azusa Pacific), the Long Beach State Invitational (held Friday and Saturday) and the Mt. SAC Relays (on Friday in Norwalk). A group of 54 Mustangs are entered in events.

Among 28 individuals currently with top-five rankings in the Big West, Cal Poly is led by two women and two men with earlier-season performances each ranking No. 1 throughout the entire conference: senior Kendal Nielsen in the triple jump (at 41 feet, 4.25 inches) and freshman Peyton Bilo in the 5,000 meters (16 minutes, 13.55 seconds), along with junior Clayton Hutchins also in the 5,000 (14:05.84) and senior Nick Woolf in the 3,000 steeplechase (8:48.03).

Nielsen (the Papa John's Cal Poly Student-Athlete of the Month), Woolf (the Big West Male Track Athlete of the Week) and Bilo are also among 19 Mustangs with respective Top 10 career-best times or marks in school history.

Cal Poly grad Sharon Day-Monroe, a three-time USATF outdoor heptathlon champion now aiming to make her third consecutive Olympics roster, is also scheduled to compete in Azusa.
