SEATTLE --- The George Fox indoor track and field team made the short trip up to the University of Washington on Saturday, as the Bruins kicked off the 2019 season at the UW Indoor Preview.

Recap:

The Bruins were the lone NCAA Division III team to make the trip and compete against the Pac-12's best.

Sarah King had the biggest performance of the day, as the senior set a new PR in the women's 400m with a time of 55.11 to break her own school record. Her mark moves her up to fourth best all-time in Div. III and is a whole two seconds faster than the next closest Div. III athlete. She placed first out of 24 runners beating multiple NCAA Div. I and Div. II athletes.

The women's 4x400 team of Elizabeth Warren, Macadia Calavan, Bethany Gingerich and King placed sixth out of 16 teams. The Bruins' relay group recorded a time of 3:56.70 to break the school record and hold the second fastest time in the country.

Chris Polk finished third in the men's 400m with a time of 49.28 and Jacoby Wolfe placed fifth in the men's high jump.

What Comes Next:

The Bruins are back in action Jan. 18 at the Ed Jacoby Invitational in Nampa, Idaho.
