LOS ANGELES – The Claremont-Mudd-Scripps men's track and field team took part in the Oxy Invite hosted by Occidental College on Saturday. The Stags saw action in field events, but the highlight of the day came in the 3000 meter steeplechase when Evan Hassman (HMC) set the seventh fastest time in CMS history in the event at 9:17.18.

Hassman finished 10th in the event overall and was the top freshman finisher. He finished less than a second behind a runner from Redlands to break the top-10 in the event and grab the seventh best time in CMS history (9:17.18).

The Stags are back in action on Wednesday and Thursday at the Redlands Final Qualifier.
