Game of the Week: College Track & Field GSAC Championships

Westmont College Hosts Weekend of Events April 26 and 27

Westmont hopes to be the host with the most, as the Warriors have won the Golden State Athletic Conference men’s team title for the past six years and the women’s for the past two. The schedule Friday evening features the 4×800-meter relays. On Saturday, Westmont junior Pieter Top, the defending NAIA decathlon champion, will compete in the 200, the 110 hurdles, the long jump, and two relays. The men’s 4×100 foursome has turned in a time of 41.45 seconds, the fastest by Westmont since 1972 when Olympic sprinter Jean-Louis Ravelomanantsoa was on the team. Sophomore Sydney Marr, the national leader in the women’s hammer (54.92 meters, 180′2″) will throw at 1:30 p.m. Emily Parks has the fastest 400 time (56.84). Running finals: Fri.: 4:10-6pm; Sat.: 12:30-4:05pm. Westmont College Track and Thorrington Field, 955 La Paz Road. Free. Visit
