CWRU Track & Field Hits the Road for the Kent State Tune Up

This weekend, members of the Case Western Reserve University men's and women's track and field teams will be competing at the Kent State Tune Up hosted by Kent State University on Saturday, February 16th in Kent, Ohio.

Last weekend, Spartans from the track and field teams competed either at the Mid-February Meet hosted by Baldwin Wallace University or the 2019 All-Ohio Division III Indoor Track and Field Championships hosted by Otterbein University.

Sophomore Trey Razanauskas and sophomore Jordan Butler each highlighted the Spartans performances, as they earned first-place finishes in their respective events. Razanauskas claimed the title in the 5,000-meter run with a time of 14:58.97, while Butler earned the top spot in the long jump with a mark of 6.77 meters.

Top performances for the women on Saturday included graduate student Cassandra Laios claiming the title in the weight throw with a new school-record mark of 18.05 meters, besting her previous school record of 17.92 meters set at last season's All-Ohio Indoor Championships. Laios also added a first-place finish in the shot put with a toss of 13.09 meters.

Each of the Spartans who earned top-three performances in their respective events received All-Ohio recognition.
