Goldring Takes Second In Women's 5,000m

March 28, 2013

The No.12 men and No.24 women's track and field teams continued the action in Day Two of the Texas Relays, rounding out the combined events as well as the distance event finals.

Redshirt senior Katja Goldring was the Bruin's top finisher on the day, as she finished second in the women's 5,000m run (16:47.23). Goldring was one of three top-ten finishes for the Bruins in the event with Kelsey Smith taking fifth (17:01.26) and Annie Mooney taking eighth (17:10.98).

The three combined event athletes took to the track for the second half of the heptathlon and decathlon, looking to improve upon their standings after Day One of competition. Tatum Souza moved ahead two places with strong performances in the last three events, finishing seventh overall (5,288 points). Souza sat in ninth coming into today. On the men's side, Dominic Giovannoni made strides Thursday and took sixth overall in the decathlon (7,558 points) just behind teammate Marcus Nilsson in fifth (7,612 points). Giovannoni's performance ranks 7th all-time in UCLA history.

Later in the afternoon, the Bruins found some success in the distance events, highlighted by a fifth place finish for the women's 4x800m relay team (8:59.53). The team of Jen Owen, Luna Udelhoven, Tiffany LaMar and Danielle Low was only one of five teams to break the 9-minute mark Thursday at Mike A. Myers Stadium in the event, another good sign for the women's team moving forward through the outdoor season. Alec Govi's sixth place finish in the men's 1,500m run (13:53.33) was another highlight for the Bruins today in Austin.
