3 top-10 finishes for Bulldogs at UW invitational

The Fresno State track and field team traveled to the University of Washington this past weekend to compete in the UW invitational.

The Bulldogs earned three top-10 finishes–from triple-jumper Tijana Antic and shot putter Yazmin Torres and sprinter Maja Pogorevc finished first in the 400 meters.

Pogorevc, a senior, placed first with a time of 54.92 seconds. Pogorevc was the only athlete to finish with a sub-55 second mark during the invitational, becoming the only Mountain West runner to achieve this mark so far this season.

The Bulldog 4×400-meter relay found success thanks in large part to Pogorevc, leading the ‘Dogs to a third-place finish, clocking in with a time of 3:46.95.

Along with Pogorevc’s top-10 finishes, triple-jumper Tijana Antic finished eighth with a season-best mark of 11.54m/37-10.5, and Yazmin Torres finished eighth in the invite section of the shot put with a throw of 13.83m/45-4.5.

Fresno State will return to action at the Don Kirby Invitational in Albuquerque, New Mexico, on Feb. 8-9.
