BRIEF: Men’s track takes MPSF title

The men’s indoor track team’s 107.5 points topped Arizona’s 102 to claim the team’s first ever Mountain Pacific Sports Federation (MPSF) championship last weekend. The MPSF for track was founded in 2002, and Stanford’s previous best finish was its runner-up position last year.

A key performance came when Stanford placed four runners in the top seven of the mile, led by senior Elliott Heath’s MPSF title-winning time of 4:00.52. Junior Amaechi Morton also claimed an individual conference title in the 400 with his time of 46.50.

The Stanford women took third in their MSPF tournament, as Oregon took the championship. Senior Whitney Liehr defended her MPSF title in the triple jump for the women’s only individual title. The finish was the Stanford women’s eighth consecutive third-place finish in the MPSF.
