FRESNO, Calif. - The Long Beach State track & field team competed at the Run for the Dream Indoor Invitational at Save Mart Center in Fresno on Sunday.
Freshman Michael Montgomery defeated UCLA's Mark Sakioka and Connor Stark to win the men's pole vault with a height of 15-06.25.
"I am so excited for Michael," 49er head coach Andy Sythe said. "He is jumping really well for this time of the season and to pick up a new personal best and get a victory over four top level jumpers is special."
Senior Josh Villalobos also registered a personal-record 59-05.5 in the weight throw and now ranks fourth on the LBSU all-time charts. Junior Joel Baez added a distance of 52-03.25 in his first indoor meet.
On the track, freshman Davon Wilson-Angel ran the sixth-fastest 55-meter hurdle time in school history as he clocked in at 7.65 seconds. Sophomore Connor Naasz was the runner-up in the 600-yard run, crossing the finish line in 77.02 seconds.
Senior Sara Macey led the women with three top-10 finishes. She was third in the high jump (5-05), sixth in the 55-meter hurdles (8.36) and 10th in the long jump (16-08.5). Macey's mark in the hurdle event was a lifetime best and ranks eighth in program history.
Sophomore Kayla Goosby established a lifetime best in the 55m dash as she placed 17th overall with a time of 7.37 seconds.
In the field events, senior Alexandra Cervantes came in eighth overall in the weight throw with a personal-record 52-04.75. She moved up two spots to No. 6 on the 49er all-time charts.
Iwobi was Long Beach State's top finisher in the long jump as she took fourth with a leap of 18-00.5. Freshman Chaylene Bruggeman was also seventh (17-07), while adding a sixth-place performance in the triple jump (36-07).
