Written by Drew Karpen on .

MANSFIELD, Pa. – The Vulcans equaled its highest-ever finish at the Pennsylvania State Athletic ConferenceMeans CalU (PSAC) Championships after nine entries scored on Saturday, highlighted by a victory in the 4x100-meter relay.

The California University of Pennsylvania men's track & field team placed sixth in the team standings with 70 points. Shippensburg cruised to its eighth-straight league championship with 208.5 points, while Slippery Rock placed second with 123 points and East Stroudsburg finished third with 109 points.

The 4x100-meter relay of freshman Jimmy Wheeler, junior Joe Vedilago, sophomore Montre Tates and redshirt freshman Jae'Len Means won the event by nearly one-tenth of a second with a time of 41.13 seconds, which was just one-hundredth of a second shy of the NCAA provisional standard. The Vulcans, who also posted the top time in yesterday's preliminaries, repeated as the league champion in the event despite just one member of the relay returning from last year.

Means, a Gateway graduate, also earned All-PSAC status in both the 100- and 200-meter dash on Saturday. He reset his own school record in the finals of the 100 meters by seven-hundredth of a second after placing third in the event with a time of 10.649 seconds, which was just three-thousandths of a second back of second place.
