Klamath Falls, Ore. - The Oregon Tech track and field team will head over the hill to Ashland, Ore. to compete in the Oregon-California four-way meet held on the campus of Southern Oregon University. Oregon Tech, Southern Oregon University, Chico State University and Humboldt State University make up the four-team event to be held on Saturday, April 18th beginning at 10 a.m.
The Owls already have 18 men qualified in 38 events for the Cascade Conference championship meet, while the women are now up to 17 in 34 events. Oregon Tech, on both the men's and women's side, will look to add more qualifiers to both the CCC meet and NAIA meet, as good weather conditions forecast Saturday in Ashland are expected to help with good marks.
Bryant Sentman (Cottage Grove, Ore.) came back from the Mt. Hood Multi Event Wednesday with a new Oregon Tech school record in the decathlon. Sentman scored 6,338 points to set the school mark and in the process moved to the #1 spot in the NAIA in the event.
Nikki Smith (Bandon, Ore.), at the Chico Twilight last weekend, won the 100 hurdles to qualify with a provisional time of 15.15s. Smith's time of 1:05.02 in the 400 hurdles also qualified as a provisional mark to the NAIA championship.
Several Oregon Tech athletes moved up on the top-10 list, including Korey Humberston (Cottage Grove, Ore.) to #7 in the 1500 (4:07.38), Bryant Sentman to #8 in the pole vault (13-6.25), Rachel Novak (Klamath Falls, Ore.) to #2 in the 1500 (5:01. 86), Amanda McMillan (North Bend, Ore.) to #5 in the 1500 (5:07.84) and Beth Fuller (Roseburg, Ore.) into the #2 spot in the shot put (40-3.5).
