Rahman-Davies, Ross, Tjerrild Tally Historic Indoor PRs in New Mexico

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Abibat Rahman-Davies, Molly Ross and Brooke Tjerrild each improved their career-best indoor marks on Saturday inside the Albuquerque Convention Center, all ranking among the Top 5 in Cal Poly indoor history, as the Mustang women's track & field squad closed out the Lobos' New Mexico Collegiate Classic.

Rahman-Davies took third place overall (second collegiately) in the triple jump, tallying a mark of 41 feet, 1.5 inches on her fifth attempt. She bettered her recent seasonal PR in Seattle by 8", good for No. 3 in program indoor history.

Kalesi Budei also added a top-10 triple jump finish Saturday for Cal Poly, earning ninth place with a mark of 37' 6.75". Rangel Ivonne, with Club de Atle professionally, won the overall meet title, landing at 43' 3.75", while Chantoba Bright of UTEP came in second altogether in the field, via 41' 10.75".

Meanwhile Brooke Tjerrild tied for sixth place in the pole vault, clearing 13 feet, 1.75 inches — jumping from No. 5 all-time at Cal Poly for indoor competition to No. 2, past Shannon Flett (12' 10" in 2000), Christine Silva (12' 8.25" in 2008) and Siera Hearne (13' 0.25" in 2012), to trail only Paula Serrano (13' 7.25"; 2000) for the school indoor record.

Saturday's effort moved Rahman-Davies up 21 spots in the NCAA rankings, now to No. 47 across the country for 2019. Tjerrild also entered the rankings on the afternoon, jumping to No. 51 in the nation this winter.

Sydney Jaques also competed for Cal Poly in the pole vault, clearing 11' 8" to notch 16th overall.

Saturday morning's qualifying rounds also saw Molly Ross advance in the 60-meter hurdles, as she finished fifth with a time of 9.04.

In improving her season-best by 0.17 seconds, Ross also took four-hundredths of a second off her previous career-best performance, moving from seventh in Mustang indoor history to fifth. In her semifinal heat, Ross went on to take seventh place at 9.23. Caice Lanovaz was also three-hundredths of a second back of her PR in the event, finishing ninth overall in 9.12.

Allison Scranton added another top-10 showing for Cal Poly, securing 10th in the shot put with a season-best mark of 41' 1". Emma Coleman followed in 19th, recording a mark of 36' 6.75".
