No. 9 UCLA Women's Track & Field Shines at Boise Indoor

Feb. 5, 2005

The No. 9 UCLA women's track and field team had an impressive showing in Idaho Feb. 4-5 as the Bruins won four individual events and picked up three NCAA qualifying marks at the Boise Indoor.

Leading the way on the women's side was junior Dawn Harper who posted double victories, in the 60m (7.72, lifetime-best) and 60m hurdles (8.37). Harper's 60m hurdle time was a NCAA provisional qualifier, but she has run a faster time this season (8.28, 1/29). Junior Jacqueline Nguyen won the pole vault with a provisional mark of 12-11.50. Senior Candice Baucham rounds out the NCAA qualifiers on the women side, with a provisional mark of 42-1.50 in the triple jump to finish second in that event. Freshman Allison Miller recorded her first victory as a Bruin, winning the high jump with a leap of 5-7.75

Several Bruins also placed in the top-three in Boise - senior Lara Saye in the weight throw (2nd, 59-5.50) and shot put (3rd, 48-0.75), senior Caroline Sommers in the high jump (2nd, 5-5.75), senior Valerie Flores in the mile (3rd, 5:09.53, lifetime-best) and the women's DMR of Alison Costello, Flores, Georgea Richards and Sarah West (2nd, 12:07.7h).

The Bruins will continue the indoor season next week in Fayetteville, AR, the site of the 2005 NCAA Indoor Championships, Saturday, Feb. 12 for the Tyson Invitational.
