Two Monmouth track and field records were broken as the Fighting Scots competed at Augustana’s Women’s Invitational Friday night and Saturday’s men’s Meet of Champions.

Caitlyn Allen broke the Scots’ women’s 10K record on Friday. The junior’s 38:05.07 record-breaking time was 20 seconds faster than the previous record and more than enough to win the meet, breaking the tape thirteen seconds ahead of second place.

Dan Evers set Monmouth’s outdoor Pole Vault record after setting the record for the same event indoors. Evers won the vault after clearing 17’6-1/2”, ranking him second in the nation.

Joanna Podosek took the top spot in the 1500-meter run. The senior clocked a 4:42.29 to win by two seconds. Podosek also placed fifth in the 800 after with a 2:18.61.

Amy Wollenburg’s earned a fifth-place finish chasing the steeple with a 12:04.79.

Four other personal-bests were turned in by Monmouth’s men. John Hintz landed the discus a personal-best 160’4” to take fourth. It’s also the 16th-best mark in the nation. Hintz also placed fifth in the hammer throw with a heave of 162-10”. Cooper Pauley clocked his lifetime-best in the 10K with a 31:42.91 to place second.

Stone Darrow lead the way for the Monmouth sprinters with a 5th place 100 M Dash time of 10.96 and a 22.14 runner-up finish is the 200 Dash.

Hurdler Vaughn Gentzler turned in a pair of top-six finishes. He placed third in the 110 hurdles in 15.21 and took sixth in the 400 hurdle event at 55.85.

The Scots landed a trio of top four performances in the jumps. Madi Schulenberg tied for second in the women’s high jump, clearing 5’1-3/4”. Seth Andersen cleared 6’3-1/2” to take third in the men’s event. Andersen also placed fourth in the triple jump with a mark of 44’0-3/4”.

The Fighting Scots will compete at Illinois College on Friday, April 27.
