It took just one collegiate event for Cerritos College freshman Alexus Dalton to set a new school record in the heptathlon.

Dalton scored 4, 799 points at the Mt. San Antonio College Combined Events Challenge over the weekend, eclipsing the former record of 4,499 that was set in the state championships in 2006 by Jacqueline Taylor.

Also participating was Dalton’s teammate, sophomore Angel Sifuentes, who came in second place in the event with 3,960 points.
