YPSILANTI, Mich. - Bryce Stroede and Sammy Mondry both won the 3K races for Oakland when the team traveled to Ypsilanti, Mich. for the Eastern Michigan Tri Meet on Friday, Jan. 10 at the Bowen Field House. Though the teams both took third place in the competition, the athletes still put forth a good showing after nearly a month away from competition.
"It was great to see the team back in competition," commented head coach Paul Rice. "We definitely need to get back into a good training rhythm after the semester break. We didn't have everyone competing today and that is reflected in the team scores, but the athletes that did compete put in some really nice performances. Overall, we needed a good starting point coming off the break and today gave us that. We will be able to get a solid week in before CMU and bring everyone back into it next week."
Nicholas Girodat and Jeff Arirguzo ran well in the 60-meter dash with a finish of 7.06 for sixth and seventh place spots. Also, Candice Mack and Serena San Cartier added nice finishes in the 200m with a second-place 26.45 for Mack and a third-place 26.57 for San Cartier. For the men's 200m, Aaron Davis earned a fourth-place finish with a time of 22.83.
Oakland next competes on Friday, Jan. 17 at the Jack Skoog Open at Central Michigan in Mount Pleasant, Mich.
