MCMINNVILLE, Ore. --- The George Fox men's and women's track and field team was back in action Saturday at the Linfield Open, as multiple Bruins had big performances.

One of the more notable performances came from Jacoby Wolfe, as the sophomore won the men's high jump with a new personal best. Wolfe hit a mark of 6-10.75, which propelled him from fourth All-Time to second All-Time at George Fox. He is also now No. 2 in the nation behind James Willingham of Louisiana College at 7-0.05.

"Jacoby took advantage of a little sunshine and had some great jumps, clearing a new PR and getting some attempts at 7'," said head coach John Smith. "He has worked incredibly hard this season and the big jumps are coming."

The women's 4x400m relay team also had a nice day with a time of 3:51.14. The team was made up of Kiana Rasubala, Annie Wright, Kylie Weatherford and Sarah King. They improve their ninth All-Time record to fourth All-Time at George Fox. They are now 10th in the nation.

"Our women's 4x4 also beat the conference champs and ran a time that will most likely qualify for the NCAA championships," added Smith.

Victoria Schroeder won the women's high jump with a mark of 5-01.75, while Asia Greene won the women's long jump with a mark of 19-06.25.

David Guild won the men's 400m hurdles with a time of 54.49. Caleb Dalzell placed fourth in the men's discuss with a heave of 159-01. His throw is an improvement from his old personal best of 158-10 and is still third All-Time at George Fox.

"We are really starting to peak at the right time with all the athletes, and we are looking great as we look to head to Ohio in a couple short weeks," remarked Smith.

What Comes Next:
The Bruins will help co-host the Portland Twilight May 11-12 and compete at the University of Portland May 13.
