PORTLAND, Ore. -- LMU sophomore Drew Dalton finished with the fastest time for a collegiate entrant at the West Coast All-Star Mile in Portland, Ore.  Dalton finished second overall in the race in 4:16.26, less than a second behind overall winner Ian Cronin who represented Brooks Racing.  The event was held in the Chiles Center on the campus on the University of Portland during halftime of the LMU-Portland men's basketball game, which was won by the Lions, 76-62.

The race was competitive from the start.  Dalton's time of 4:16.26 beat the University of Portland's Tre Perry by more than a second and recent USC alum and Portland native John Carley by two seconds.  Dalton is coming off of an impressive freshman track season that saw him win the Spring Break Invitational at UC Irvine in the 3000m and finish fifth at the Cal/Nevada Track & Field Championships in the 5000m.

Dalton's collegiate-best finish at the West Coast All-Star Mile, followed by the Lions win over the Pilots in men's basketball finished a great night for LMU in Portland.
