Henderson, Johnson Pace Bruins at Mt. SAC

April 19, 2004

Junior Monique Henderson (400m) and sophomore Chelsea Johnson (pole vault) won their invitational events on Sunday at the Mt. SAC Relays and are UCLA's nominees for Pac-10 Women's Track & Field Athletes of the Week (April 19).

Henderson (San Diego/Morse HS) won the 400m in a time of 51.49 (regional qualifier/RQ). It's her first 400m outdoor mark this season. The time would be No. 4 on the all-time UCLA chart (Henderson already holds the No. 2 spot, 51.10, 2002) and is the former national high school record holder (50.74, personal-best).

Johnson (Atascadero HS) won the pole vault with a mark of 14-8 (4.47), setting a new meet record. She missed three attempts at 15-1.25, which would have broken her NCAA Outdoor mark of 15-0 (March 27).

Also performing well at last weekend's Mt SAC Relays were:

  • junior Jessica Cosby, fourth (56-7.25/17.25, season-best, RQ) in the invitational shot put
  • freshman Kamaiya Warren, second (50-11/15.52) in the university open shot put
  • redshirt freshman Jenna Timinsky, fifth (2:06.26, personal-best, RQ, No. 8 in UCLA history) in the university open 800m
  • senior Melissa McBain, ninth (4:19.01, personal-best, RQ) in the invitational 1500m
  • senior Cari Soong, 10th (207-10/63.36) in the hammer throw

    The Bruins also ran well in the university open 1500m. Redshirt sophomore Alejandra Barrientos won her section in a time of 4:17.60, the second-best overall mark in the event and it was her personal-best, RQ and No. 8 in school history. Also winning their heats in the 1500m were sophomore Ashley Caldwell (4:27.40) and sophomore Allison Hall (4:33.65).

    Over the weekend, the Bruins also competed at the Long Beach Invitational. For complete Mt SAC and Long Beach results, please log onto www.flashresults.com/flashwest/ for Mt. SAC Relay results and www.longbeachstate.com for Long Beach Invite results.

    This week, the Bruins will send athletes to the Penn Relays in Philadelphia (April 22-24) and to the UC San Diego Invitational (April 23-24).

    Looking ahead, UCLA's Drake Stadium will host the annual UCLA/USC dual meet on Saturday, May 1.
