FOREST GROVE, Ore. -- Katie Hull and Bryce Johnson hit all-time bests in an event as the Lewis & Clark Pioneers competed at the Pacific Open at Hanson Stadium on Saturday. Hull crossed in 5:27.10 in the 1,500 meters to eclipse her personal best by over two seconds, while Johnson won the 200 meters with an all-time best time of 22.35.
For the first time ever, Etta Moen ran the 800 meters and placed third with a time of 2:33.80. Johnson competed in the high jump for the first time and placed third with an effort of 5 feet, 11.25 inches (1.81m).
With spring break concluding, the Pioneers had a smaller contingency at Saturday's meet than they've had prior in the season and will have for the rest of the year.
Isam Tahir took fourth place in the 100 meters, clocking in at 11.43. He ran an all-time best 11.33 two weeks ago at the L&C Spring Break Open. Andrew Werst was also a fourth-place finisher on Saturday. The senior threw 43 feet, 0.5 inches (13.12m) in the shot put to earn fourth while posting a 129-foot, 11-inch (39.59m) throw in the discus.
Lewis & Clark had two in the women's triple jump. Rachelle Locey posted a mark of 32 feet, 8.25 inches (9.96m) and placed fourth, while Tihanne Mar-shall placed fifth with her distance of 30 feet, 7.74 inches (9.34m).
