UCLA Men Win Fourth Straight MPSF Indoor Title

Feb. 26, 2005

The UCLA men won their fourth straight MPSF Indoor Championship (117.50 pts.) on Saturday in Seattle, WA as senior Yoo Kim won the pole vault, breaking his own Korean National Record (old record, 18-4), jumping a lifetime best jump of 18-4.75.

The Bruins had three individual winners on Saturday: Kim, Nick Thornton, and Craig Everhart.

Kim's jump was just short of the indoor school record (18-5.25, Mike Tully, 1978) and he will have one final shot at the record in two weeks at the MPSF Indoor Championships. Mike Landers placed fourth in the pole vault with a jump of 16-11.50. Junior Craig Everhart won the 400m in a provisional time of 46.59, and seniors Mario Bassani (47.42) and Denye' Versher (48.22) placed sixth and seventh respectively. Senior Nick Thornton won the 800m competition in a time of 1:51.07, while junior Martell Munguia (1:54.68) and freshman Mike Haddan (1:57.53) placed fifth and sixth respectively. In the mile competition, senior Ben Aragon placed fifth in a provisional qualifying time of 4:02.89 (season-best). In the 60m hurdles, senior Tony Golston placed second in a time of 7.91, while senior Jonathan Williams finished third (7.93).

Freshmen Dominique Easterling (50-3.50) and Michael Johnson, Jr. (50-3.25) finished second and third in the triple jump, while freshman John Caulfield placed third in the shot put (60-1.75). Juniors Jake Knight (59-7) and Jeremy Silverman (56-3.75) finished fourth and sixth in the shot put.

The 4x400m relay team of Bassani, Thornton, Versher and Everhart placed third in a provisional qualifying time of 3:08.18.

In Friday's action, freshman Austin Ramos placed seventh in the 5000m (14:19.37), and the DMR team of Aragon, Versher, Haddan and Rankin won in a provisional qualifying time of 9:42.53. Silverman placed fourth in the weight throw with a lifetime-best 57-10.25.
