SEATTLE - The Stanford women's distance medley relay team highlighted Cardinal performances on opening night of the UW Invitational indoor track and field meet at Dempsey Indoor track.
The Cardinal team of Cami Chapus, Joy O'Hare, Claudia Saunders, and Emilie Amaro clocked 11:24.90 to place third behind a pair of teams from Oregon on the 307-meter flat track. The DMR consists of legs of 1,200 meters, 400, 800, and 1,600, in that order.
Overall, 16 Stanford athletes competed - 11 women and five men - and more will do so Saturday, including seven who will race in invitational events.
Stanford's top individual performance came from senior Carissa Levingston, who raced to second in her heat and fifth overall in the 200 meters with a time of 24.78.
Among other races, Joe Rosa, Luke Lefebure, Will Drinkwater, and Billy Orman were fourth in the men's DMR, in 9:55.81.
Perhaps the hardest working Stanford athlete was sophomore Madeline Treasure, who competed in the indoor pentathlon, a one-day five-event competition. Treasure placed 20th, with 3,238.
