May 9, 2010

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - LMU Track continues to post personal bests and strong performances at the Occidental Invitational this weekend. Freshman Greg Innes continues to deliver stellar improvements on the track with a 5k personal record, while Oran Arms sets a personal record in the 800meters and Cynthia Chaidez sets an all-time best in the 5k.

On the men's side, freshman Greg Innes continued to set huge personal records. Innes has become one of the Lions top runners as a freshman and yesterday improved by over fifteen seconds breaking 15minutes with a 14:53 for the 5k. This is not only a huge personal record, but also puts Innes in the top five all time at LMU for the 5k in only his second 5k ever raced on the track. Also in the 5k, freshman Sterling Lockert competed in his first race back after a month off from injury. Earlier in the day Oran Arms set a personal record of 1:55.53 for 800meters, which puts Arms second all-time at LMU in the 800meters and gives him a season best. Senior Daniel LaCava competed in the 1500meter race completing the distance in 4:00.1 while freshman Michael Carlone also ran the 1500meters and set a personal record for the season at 4:08.86. With this performance, Carlone ran over 4 seconds improvement from his last 1500meter time.

On the women's side, the lady lions took on a competitive pack in the 5k. Freshman Sheree Shea led the Lions across the line with a time of 16:53 and placing 5th overall. This time is only three seconds off her personal best of 16:50 and Shea will still be looking to get a bid into the NCAA Regional meet. Cynthia Chaidez finished out her season with a personal best of 17:41 that puts her as 5th all-time at LMU. Chaidez improved her 5k time by five seconds for an all-time best and finished 13th overall in a competitive field. Sophomore Brieanna Delaney also performed well for the Lions placing 20th overall with 17:51 while freshman Caroline Draper also finished in the top thirty with 18:10.

 

 

Next up, the Lions will travel a small squad who are still in post-season competition to Georgia for the Georgia-Tech Invite on April 14-15th for one last competition before NCAA Regionals.
