Three Banana Slugs named Track and Field All-Region


Jordynn Dorado, Paul Colosi and Mason Pierce were named Division III All-West Region by the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association on Monday.

The top-5 individuals in each event from each region – as well the region's top-3 relay teams – earned All-Region distinction. 

A two-time NCAA participant in cross country, Colosi was All-Region in 5000 meters. He PR'd this year with a time of 14:44.64.

Pierce,a Freshman, was All-Region in Pole Vault. He holds the school record of 4.76m (15ft 7.25in) which was the 29th highest mark in the NCAA this year. He is the second straight vaulter to earn an All-Region nod, after Damiano Carrioli last year.

Dorado, UCSC's top thrower, was honored  in shot put, an event she set the school record twice this season.
