SANTA BARBARA --- The George Fox outdoor track and field team wrapped up the Westmont Collegiate Classic on Saturday, as the Bruins finished the meet with multiple top marks.

Recap:

The women's 4x100m relay team of Sarah King, Kennedy Taube, Sara Turner, and Sydney Radigan broke the George Fox school record with a time of 46.39 to win the event. The previous school record was held by Taube, Turner, Lis Larsen, and King in 2018 with a time of 46.55. The new time is the nation's leader in NCAA Division III and is faster than the Bruins' 4x100m relay team that won at National's last season.

Jacoby Wolfe won the men's high jump with a mark of 7-0.25 to tie the school record at George Fox. Wolfe is now tied with Bruin Tim Haen at the top spot in the men's high jump at George Fox, which was set in 1990. Wolfe's mark is the national leader by over three inches.

Taube continued her success on the day with a win in the women's 100m with a time of 12.13. Taube's time ties Turner for the school record in that event and moves her to second in the nation.
