POMONA, Calif. – The Master’s College women’s track and field team capped off a remarkable day by setting multiple personal records as well as an individual win at the Pomona-Pitzer Invitational.
Ayla Draper (Visalia, CA) toed the track running the 100 meter hurdles in a blazing time of 15.1 seconds.

Just a second behind, freshman Rachael Ingoldsby (St. John’s, FL) set a personal record and ran 4:41.08 also qualifying her for nationals.
Draper was back at it in the 400 and 200 meter events. The seasoned runner placed first overall in the 400 with a time of 58.22, and then ran the 200 meter in 26.28. Draper set new personal records in both events.
The 5,000 meters was the concluding event where Hannah Kellerman (Sartell, MN) placed second running a time of 17 minutes and 41 seconds. The remaining pack of Lady Mustangs consisted of Charity Schroeder (Palmdale, CA), Katrina Graham (Riverside, CA), Micayla Frankian (Saugus, CA), Hollie Larsen (Saugus, CA), and Jessica Hawley (Canyon Country, CA) all running 18:42.77, 18:46, 18:50.23, 19:08, and 22:00, respectively. Both Schroeder and Frankian’s times were new personal records.
“I’m really thankful for being able to qualify at this meet in the 1500 and just executed the race plan that coach gave me,” remarked Ingoldsby. “Our team performed great today as always and I’m so blessed to be able to run with these girls. I’m very excited for what is to come and ready to leave it all on the track at conference.”
