Dylan Anthony tested his legs in a new event at the Occidental Invitational on Saturday in California.

The University of Alaska Anchorage sophomore competed in his first 3,000-meter steeplechase and finished fourth with a time of 9 minutes, 22.87 seconds — just shy of an NCAA Division II provisional mark.

The steeplechase is a 3,000-meter obstacle course featuring hurdles and a water pit.

Teammate Jaymi Bethea placed 25th out of 70 in the women’s 5,000 meters with a time of 17:45.37.

On Friday and Saturday, UAA competes in the Great Northwest Athletic Conference Championships in Monmouth, Ore.
