WALNUT — UC Davis sophomore Katie Fry lowered her school record in the 3,000-meter steeplechase while senior Lauren Wallace moved into the No. 2 all-time Aggie position in the 1,500 as the Aggies began a busy weekend of track and field with outstanding efforts at the Mt. SAC Relays on Thursday.

Besides sending an elite group of athletes to the prestigious meet at Mt. SAC, UCD also will be hosting the annual Woody Wilson Classic at Woody Wilson Track on Friday and Saturday, a meet that takes on a new look this year.

At Mt. SAC, Wallace got things going with her standout effort in the 1,500, finishing fourth in the university/open division in 4 minutes, 20.99 seconds. That provided her a personal record by more than a second and moved her to the No. 2 spot on the all-time list.

The 1,500 has been a strong event for UCD with three of the top five individuals each earning their spots with efforts this season. Alycia Cridebring (4:21.44), who raced into the second position last week at Sacramento State but is now third, will race in the Olympic Development 1,500 race on Friday at Mt. SAC.

Fry, who is fifth on the 1,500 list, provided her own fireworks in the steeplechase where she lowered her school record by a half-second to 10:16.46 with her seventh-place finish in the Olympic Development division on Thursday. She set the previous record this season at the Stanford Invitational.

Raquel Lambdin was also in action in the 1,500 for the Aggies on Thursday, turning in a time of 4:25.83, just off her PR of 4:24.07 established earlier this spring.

UC Davis has 16 members of its men’s and women’s teams in action at Mt. SAC, considered one of the top track and field meets in the country.

The rest of the Aggie squad will compete on Friday and Saturday at the annual Woody Wilson Classic, which for the first time will be run concurrently with the Woody Wilson High School Invitational. In previous years, the high school portion was contested on Friday while the open division took center stage on Saturday.

This year’s Woody Wilson Classic will have both groups competing both days, including Saturday when an expected 80,000 to 100,000 visitors arrive for annual Picnic Day on campus.

Competition on Friday begins at 2 p.m. with the high school girls distance medley and the high school boys long jump. The open men’s and women’s hammer events and men’s javelin are also at 2 p.m.

Events continue throughout the day concluding on the track with the women’s 10,000 at 8:15 p.m. and the men’s 10K at 9 p.m.

Saturday’s running events start with the women’s B sections of the 5,000 at 11 a.m. while the high school girls triple jump gets things on the field rolling at 10:30 a.m.

Local children will get their turn in the spotlight at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday with the community kids races, while special needs athletes from Team Davis will showcase their talents at 1:35 p.m. The meet concludes with the high school 4×400 relays beginning at 4:05 p.m., and the open divisions of those same races following at 4:35 p.m.

Admission to the meet on Friday is $7 for adults and $5 for student with ID. Admission for the Saturday portion of the meet is free of charge. Parking will cost $7 on Friday.
