Seven Athletes Capture All-Conference Honors

Seven Athletes Capture All-Conference Honors

For their efforts at the SCIAC Championship seven Caltech track & field athletes were rewarded with all-conference honors.  The SCIAC Championship on April 27 & 28 determined the best athletes in the conference.  

Junior Brice Nzeukou finished in fifth place in the high jump competition.  His jump of 5'9 3/4" was just 5 3/4" short of the top mark in the conference.  This is Nzeukou's first all-conference award.  

Sarah Wright captured all-conference honors in two separate events.  Her javelin throw of 112'4" was sixth overall in the conference, but was just over nine feet shy of second place.  The junior Bioengineering major was also part of the 4 x 100 meter relay team that finished in sixth place in the conference.  

Carrie Wang started the race for the 4 x 100 meter relay team.  Wright ran the second leg, followed by freshman Katherin Lai.  Junior, Mia Oviatt anchored the race for the team.  Wang, Wright, and Oviatt were all members of the 4 x 100 meter relay team last season that also captured all-conference honors.  

Jessica Swallow earned all-conference honors for her third place finish in the triple jump.  Her best distance of 35'9 1/4" was just 3'2" short of winning the competition.  The senior received all-conference honors for the second time in her career.  In 2009 she also received the honor in the high jump competition.  

Sophomore Paige Logan returned to the all-conference podium by finishing fourth in the women's shot put competition.  Logan's mark of 36'6 3/4" was outstanding and earned her a spot on the all-conference shot put team for the second year in a row.  This is the third time Logan has been awarded all-conference honors after receiving it last season for discus as well.
