Track competes in California, Indiana

The Butler track and field team made waves last weekend with a handful of stellar performances at the Mt. SAC Relays in Walnut, Calif.

Junior Katie Clark led the team, shattering All-American Victoria Mitchell’s school record in the 5,000-meter run by 23 seconds. Clark clocked 15:43.52 for fourth place out of collegiate runners and 11th place overall.

Freshman Olivia Pratt took fourth in the Open-B 5,000-meter race, finishing in 16:30.24 and missing the top spot by less than four seconds.

For the men’s 1,500-meter run, junior Ross Clarke competed in the Olympic Development division and ran a time of 3:45.74.

Back in Indiana, the rest of the squad was in Bloomington for the Polytan Invitational.

Freshman Luke Zygmunt was the top collegiate in the men’s 800-meter run and third overall with a time of 1:52.61.

The team splits again this weekend, with some staying in town for the Butler-hosted Stan Lyons Invitational and others heading to the Payton Jordan Invitational at Stanford.
