April 16, 2001

UCLA junior Tracy O'Hara is this week's (April 16) Pacific-10 Women's Field Athlete of the Week for her victory in the pole vault at last Saturday's Bruin track meet at Drake Stadium vs. Nebraska and CS Northridge.

O'Hara won the women's pole vault with a mark of 13-9 1/4. It was her season-best, the No. 2 collegiate mark in the U. S. and an NCAA automatic qualifier. Her winning effort helped lead the Bruin women to triangular and dual scoring victories over Nebraska and CS Northridge.
