The Stanford men's and women's Track and Field teams opened their indoor season with some strong results at the UW Indoor Preview in Seattle, Wash. The Cardinal had several event winners and national provisional qualifying times.
On the men's side, Myles Bradley took first place in the 60 meter hurdles and in the process earned a national provisional qualifying mark of 7.90 seconds. The mark was also a Stanford school record indoors. Bradley became the first 60 meter hurdler to run under eight seconds, besting the mark of 8.03 shared by Justin Williams in 2003, Josh Hustedt in 2007, and Bradley in 2006.
Graeme Hoste was also an event winner as he took the pole vault competition with a national provisional vault of 17' 1'. Benjamin Dickens followed up Hoste with a second place finish in the pole vault with a vault of 15' 7 ¼'.
Stanford also entered two teams in the distance medley relay. The Cardinal's 'A' team, comprised of Justin Marpole-Bird, Durell Coleman, Justin Reed, and Thomas Gruenewald finished second with a time of 9:51.53. They were just ahead of their teammates, the Stanford 'B' team, which finished third with a time of 9:53.06.
On the women's side, Shataya Hendricks got her freshman season off to a good start by winning the 60 meter dash in a time of 7.57.
In the distances, Stanford entered three teams in the distance medley, sweeping the top three spots. The Stanford 'A' team, comprised of Arianna Lambie, Idara Otu, Madeline Duhon, and Katie Harrington won the race with a time of 11:34.22.
Stanford will be back on the track next Saturday, January 26 when they travel to Boise Idaho to compete in the Blue & Orange Classic.
