Members of the Arizona State University track and field team combined to win 13 events, including a sweep of five events, in the team’s final tune-up before the championship season as the Sun Devils competed in the Lumberjack Invitational on Saturday inside the Walkup Skydome in Flagstaff, Ariz. Ten marks recorded ranked among the Top 10 all-time in program history while the Sun Devils had 31 Top 3 finishes posted on the day.

In the team standings, the Sun Devils won both genders with the ASU women scoring 112 points and the men 148. ASU’s women were followed in the Top 3 by San Diego State (102) and Northern Arizona (67) while the men finished ahead of NAU (105) and Grand Canyon (60).

Daniel Auberry had one of the top days for the Sun Devils as he won a pair of events, taking the 60m dash in 6.80 (altitude adjusted) and the 200m dash in 21.52. His finish in the 200m dash led a 1-2-3 finish for the Sun Devils as William Henry (21.53) and Kelsey Caesar (21.67) came in just behind Auberry. Henry and Caesar led the way for a 1-2-3 finish in the 400m dash as well with Henry winning in 47.27, Caesar in second at 47.40 and John Kline in third at 47.90.

The ASU program swept three other events - all in the field - as well, including the high jump, the pole vault and the shot put. For the women, Samantha Henderson won the high jump with a clearance of 1.64m (5-04.50); Shaylah Simpson won the pole vault with a mark of 4.00m (13-01.50); and Anna Jelmini captured the shot put with a toss of 16.44m (53-11.25). In the men’s events, Bryan McBride won the high jump with a clearance of 2.05m (6-08.75) while Jordan Clarke took the shot put with a mark of 18.67m (61-03.00), the sixth-best mark in school history. The men’s pole vault was a three-way tie among three Sun Devils with Dylan Austin, Corey Phallen and Austin Prince all clearing 4.91m (16-01.25).

The final wins came in the jumps. For the women, Christabel Nettey took the title in the long jump with a mark of 6.18m (20-03.50). In the men’s triple jump, Chris Benard won the event with a leap of 15.80m (51-10.00), the fifth-best mark in ASU history.

On the school’s all-time Top 10 lists, five women added six marks while two other men added two times as well. The women’s list included two marks by Kayla Sanchez, who ran the seventh-best time in the 60m dash (aa 7.55) and the eighth-best time in the 200m dash (24.08). Staying on the track, Asia Gooden clocked the ninth-best time in the 60m dash (aa 7.63) while Samantha Henderson posted the eighth-best time in the 60m hurdles (aa 8.75).

The women’s weight throw produced a pair of Top 10 marks as Ashley Lampley and Cj Navarro posted the sixth and seventh-best marks, respectively. Lampley tossed the 20-pound weight to 17.45m (57-03.00) while Navarro hit a toss of 17.29m (56-08.75). Both men’s marks came in the 60m hurdles as Jamie Sandys ran aa 8.68 to post the sixth-best time in school history while Austin Prince’s time of aa 9.11 ranks 10th all-time.

The Sun Devils will travel to Seattle next week to compete in the MPSF Indoor Championships, hosted by Washington, on Friday and Saturday, February 25-26.
