Women's Track & Field Finishes Seventh at MPSF Championships

Feb. 25, 2006

Results

The No. 14 UCLA women's track and field team placed seventh overall (41.50 pts.) at the 2006 MPSF Indoor Championships in Seattle, WA. Freshman Lauren Correa, junior Kamaiya Warren and sophomore Allison Miller led the Bruins as top-five finishers for UCLA in their respective events.

Warren, who holds one of the top-10 shot put marks in the country (54-8), placed fourth with a throw of 52-11.

Correa tied for second in the high jump with a mark fo 5-7.25. Miller also achieved the same mark, but dropped to fourth based on misses. Sophomore Kathleen Mahony also jumped a season-best in the high jump of 5-5.25 to place seventh overall.

Junior Allison Hall placed eighth in the mile, running a season-best 4:54.26, while senior Leslie Barrie also ran a season-best, finishing 10th in a time of 4:54.96.

In the 60m hurdles, the Bruins held out senior Dawn Harper, who has already qualified provisionally for the NCAA Indoor Championships in two weeks. Her time of 8.18 nearly guarantees a spot at Nationals, so Head Coach Jeanette Bolden decided to rest her. Georgea Richards was the sole representative for the Bruins in this event, placing fifth overall in a time of 8.82. Her prelim time of 8.69 also set a new indoor lifetime-best.

The 4x400m relay team of freshman Chanelle Curry, sophomore Shantae McKinney, freshman Gabrielle Bournes and Hall finished ninth in a time of 3:50.98.

On Friday, senior Chelsea Johnson vaulted into the No. 1 spot in the nation in the pole vault with a jump of 14-5.25, also winning that event.

The Bruins will now prepare for the NCAA Indoor Championships, which will be held in Fayetteville, AR March 10-11. Warren, Harper and Johnson are guaranteed competitors for Nationals. The Bruins will also host their first outdoor meet of the season on March 4 as Cal State Fullerton, Cal State LA and Cal Poly SLO head to Westwood for the UCLA Invite.
