UAA's David Registe was just warming up Friday when he claimed his third Great Northwest Athletic Conference title in the long jump at the conference track and field championships in Monmouth, Ore.
On Saturday, the senior from Palmer collected four more victories -- in the 100, 200, the 4x100 relay and the 4x400 relay -- to set a GNAC record and lead the Seawolves.
Besides the haul by Registe, Micah Chelimo of Kenya won the 5,000 meters Saturday to go along with his Friday victory in the steeplechase, Shaun Ward of Eagle River won the 400 hurdles and Ruth Keino of Kenya topped the women's 5,000 to give UAA champions in nine events.
The Seawolves also took home 13 all-conference certificates and posted one school record.
Registe, the first GNAC athlete to win five titles at the conference championships, was named the meet's outstanding male performer -- an award that last year went to teammate Alfred Kangogo.
Registe, who owns the top long jump mark in NCAA Division II, sprinted to victory in the 100 (10.76 seconds) and 200 (21.69) and ran legs on UAA's victorious relay teams. He anchored the 4x100 team that also included A.J. Allen, Billy Kiefer and Ward, who combined for a winning time of 42.2 seconds, and joined Levi Sutton, Kangogo and Ward on the 4x400 team, which won in 3:17.93.
UAA swept the 5,000 races thanks to Chelimo and Keino, a pair of sophomores. Chelimo recorded a personal-best of 14:29.41 and Keino won in 17:23.81, beating teammate and runnerup Miriam Kipng'eno by six seconds.
Ward, a junior, took the 400 hurdles victory in 52.23.
Also gaining all-conference honors was Kangogo, second in the 1,500 in 1:57.06, and Ardrienna Everett, a senior who was second in the women's 400 hurdles (1:03.07).
UAA's only school record came in the women's 4x100, where Dianne Chong, Kelsea Johnson, Sasha Halfyard and Haleigh Lloyd combined for a 48.54, beating their record of 48.75 recorded in March.
The Seawolves finished fourth in the men's team standings and sixth in the women's. Team titles went to the Western Oregon men and Seattle Pacific women.
One more meet remains for the Seawolves, the May 26-28 Division II national championships in Turlock, Calif.
