IRVINE, Calif. - Rosa Del Toro established a school record in the women's 1500m run to lead the Long Beach State track & field team on the final day of the Steve Scott Invitational at Anteater Stadium.
The 49ers also added five Big West qualifying marks in their final meet before the conference championships.
Del Toro continued to etch her name in the program record books as she topped the LBSU all-time charts with a lifetime-best 4:24.97 in the 1500m. The Van Nuys native is also the indoor school-record holder in the mile and 3000m, while ranking second in the 5000m, and is third in the 5000m and 10th in the 800m on the outdoor list.
Del Toro finished third overall in Sunday's race and Kylee Martin added a season-best and Big West qualifying time of 4:44.12 to place 16th.
Katrina Graves-Johnson won the high jump, matching her personal best at 5-10.75, which ranks seventh in program history. Sara Macey (5-05) and Stephanie Armstrong (5-03) finished third and fifth, respectively.
Jessica Barnard notched a lifetime-best 2:10.13 to come in third in the 800m.
Shakina Phillips clocked in with a personal-record 59.89 in the 400m hurdles to move up to No. 5 on the 49er all-time charts. She also had a 10th-place showing in the 100m hurdles (14.00), while Kristen Kiefer was 11th overall (14.07).
Emily Cooper finished fifth in the 200-meter dash in a lifetime-best 24.41 seconds, putting her in a tie for ninth in school history. Kayla Goosby (24.90) and Alexandrea Kruthers (25.24) also registered season bests, while Kruthers' mark was a Big West qualifier.
Cooper added a season-best 11.92 (wind-aided) in the 100m to finish 10th. Saedra Wright was Long Beach State's top finisher in the 400m (10th, 56.03), while Kruthers and Jasmine Askew (Big West qualifier) chipped in season bests at 57.09 and 57.60, respectively.
The quartet of Goosby, Wright, Dee Lars and Cooper placed third in the 4x100 with the ninth-fastest time in school history (46.52).
