MISSOULA -- In the final regular meet of the season, the Montana State Billings men's and women's track and field team set three program records at the Montana Open on Saturday.

The day was highlighted by the 1-3 finish of Robert Peterson and Chase Robinson in the 1,500 and breaking a 42-year-old Yellowjacket record.

Peterson won in 3:54.79, while Robinson ran a 3:54.96. The previous MSUB record was 3:55.8, set by Paul Carpenter in 1972. Both Peterson and Robinson hit automatic marks for next weekend's Great Northwest Athletic Conference Track and Field Championships.

Cole Campbell of Hardin bettered his own record in the pole vault, going 14 feet, 5.25 inches on Saturday. He broke MSUB's 34-year-old pole vault record at the Battlin' Bear/Yellowjacket Open meet in Laurel on April 17. Campbell is ranked fourth in the GNAC.

Easton Padden of Carroll College won the pole vault at 17-0.25.

The MSUB women's 400 relay team of Kaytlin Halle, Hope Reid, Shelby Mitchell and Blair Street ran a school-record time of 49.77, bettering the previous record of 49.86 set in 2011.

A.J. Montanez placed second in the discus (146-1) and third in the shot put (50-7.25) for the MSUB men, while Drew Galahan was second in the 800 meters with a time of 1:55.5. Tyler DiGiovanni was second in the 200 in 22.65.

Montana's Lee Hardt cleared 7 feet to win the high jump.
