May. 2, 2005

UCLA's Drake Stadium on Saturday-Sunday (May 7-8) will host the 2005 Pacific-10 Multi-Events Championships, featuring top women and men's athletes from Pac-10 conference schools competing in the heptathlon (women/seven events) and the decathlon (men/10 events). There will be no ticket charge for this event.

Women
As of April 25, the top conference heptathletes were Washington State sophomores, twins - Diana (5,492/NCAA provisional qualifier) and Julie (5,414/NCAA provisional qualifier) Pickler.
UCLA sophomore Nastassja Hall is No. 4 on the current Pac-10 chart, with an NCAA provisional mark of 5,191.

Last year's Pac-10 heptathlon champion, Arizona State's Jackie Johnson, is redshirting this outdoor season and will not compete.

Last year's decathlon champion, freshman Tommy Skipper, also the defending Pac-10 pole vault champion, earlier this season injured a knee (that required surgery) and he is not expected to compete.
