Cal Adds Slew Of Top Ten Marks

STANFORD – California track & field posted a stellar outing in its first true outdoor meet of the 2023 season, recording no fewer than 4 meet records, 10 entries on the program’s all-time top-10 lists and 10 event wins at the Cardinal Classic on Saturday.
On the men’s side, the hammer throw was the standout of the morning’s field events as two Golden Bears – senior Kegan Schroeter and junior Ivar Moisander – posted top 10 program marks. Schroeter’s winning toss of 69.33m (227-5) was also a new meet record and currently stands at No. 2 in program history, while Moisander’s 68.20m (223-9) improved his own No. 4 mark and earned him second place in the field. Sophomore Riley Knott posted a win of his own in the high jump, clearing the bar at 2.00m (6-6.75) to match his own personal best and close out the morning.
