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.
