Draper and Team Moving in the Right Direction

The Women's Track and Field team competed in the Westmont Collegiate Classic last Friday and Saturday, turning in another stepping-stone performance. Hannah Kellerman and Sarah Pattison competed in the 1500m on Saturday afternoon.  Kellerman won her heat with a time of 5:00.50; Pattison finished 3rd in the same heat, setting a new personal record of 5:04.06.

Apart from the distance team, TMC freshman Ayla Draper competed in the heptathlon with the seven-event competition spanning the course of two days.  Scoring 4024 points, Draper's mark is currently 4th on the NAIA national performance list in the heptathlon.   Teammate Caitlyn Ramirez also competed in the heptathlon over the weekend, scoring 3780 points, and is currently 7th on the performance list.  In order to earn a berth to the NAIA Outdoor Track and Field National Championships, Draper and Ramirez will have to keep scores within the top 16 nationally.
