LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) -- The dynasty continues for the UW-La Crosse men's track and field team. They capture their 23rd straight WIAC Championship at Roger Harring Stadium on the same weekend the UWL women win their second straight conference title.

Both teams entered Saturday's slate of events with leads in the point standings. Marissa Mahr won the 400 meter hurdles and Maya Vazquez took second in the 200 meter dash as part of a grand total 246.5 point team total. UW-Oshkosh took second, and UW-Eau Claire finished third.

Key performances for the men included a second place finish from Isaac Vazquez in the triple jump and a one-two finish in the 800 meter run. Sean Royer took first just ahead of Eric Smits as La Crosse built a 223 point total, 17 points clear of second place Oshkosh and 113 ahead of a third place tie between Eau Claire and UW-Platteville.

This marks the 49th overall outdoor conference title for the UWL men's team and 28th in school history for the Eagle women.
