PORTLAND — Oregon Tech had two event winners Saturday at the Pioneer Open track and field meet at Lewis & Clark College, while Kassi Conditt broke a school-record in the shot put.
Emilee Nehring won the women’s long jump at 17 feet, seven inches, one of two top 10 efforts in the event for the Hustlin’ Owls. Breanna Burns was 10th at 15-4¼.
Kevin Jorgensen won the men’s 1,500-meter run, and was timed in three minutes, 59.69 seconds. He was the only runner among the 47 entries to break four minutes. OIT’s Korey Humbertson, Scott Minor, Jed Tolbert and Darrick Waugh all finished 6-to-10 seconds behind Jorgensen.
Kassi Conditt was second in the women’s shot put at 41-8¾, and broke an OIT school-record with the throw. Conditt placed behind Concordia’s Gabriella Dixson. Concordia’s men and women won the team titles.
OIT’s Bryant Sentman, in his first action since winning the Mount Hood decathlon earlier in the week, had a fourth-place finish in the pole vault, while Seth Hernandez was sixth in the men’s 800.
The Hustlin’ Owls now will prepare for their only home meet of the season, the Oregon-California Border Clash Saturday at OIT’s John F. Moehl Stadium. In addition to OIT, other teams expected to compete are Southern Oregon, Cal State-Chico and Humboldt State.
