Dorado, Chiaravalloti,Rule set school records at Hornet Invitational

SACRAMENTO - In their second meet of the season, UC Santa Cruz's track team saw several school records fall at the Hornet Invitational hosted by Sacramento State.

"We really embraced the opportunity to race against high level competition and put ourselves in a position to perform," said head coach David Klech. "Sac State always host a well-run meet, and we were able to continue to have a unbelievable start to the season."

Jordynn Dorado broke her own school record in the shot put, placing 12th overall with a toss of 12.56m (41 ft 2.5 in.) Isabella Chiaravalloti set the school record in the Pole Vault with a 3.15m (10 ft 4 in.) vault to edge half an inch above the mark set last year. 

"For the women we had a school record in the Pole Vault by Isabella to start the day. Jordynn had her best meet in a Slug Uniform in the Shot Put and Discus. Sydney Gutierrez had a great 1500, her second best time ever. Natalie, Amelia, and Erin all ran tremendous in the Women's 800, all running substantial personal bests. "

On the men's side, the 4x400 relay squad of Conrad Pereira, Raymond Breault, Draven Hawk and Mateo Ramirez bettered the school record by 1.14 seconds with a time of 3:28.85.
Tyler Rule obliterated his school mark in the 3000 meter steeplechase, running a time of 9:36.22. He placed 7th overall in the meet, breaking his previous record of 9:59.33.

"Tyler continued his breakthrough season by running a 9:36 in the Steeple that has him ranked top 10 in the country at this point in the season," said Klech. "Conrad had a breakout meet; running a new personal best in the 400m, a new personal best in the High Jump, and then led off our 4x400m relay faster than his individual split.
 
"Our Men's 800 with Raymond, Draven, Mateo all ran great early season performances. We have two weeks to get ready for the SF State Distance Carnival where we hope to continue our momentum."
