Bruin Athletes Head to Stanford, UCSD Invites
By: UCLA Athletics

March 22, 1999

UCLA's men and women track and field teams this weekend (Saturday-Sunday, March 27-28) will send selected athletes to invitationals at Stanford and UC San Diego. This week is final exams for UCLA student-athletes so the Bruins will not send a complete team to either Stanford or UC San Diego.

Last Saturday (March 20) on the new track and field facility at CS Sacramento, site of the 2000 U. S. Olympic Trials, the Bruin men and women opened the 1999 collegiate outdoor season with quadrangular victories over California, Washington and UC Irvine.

In men's team scoring, the Bruins won with 225 points, followed by Cal (206), Washington (168) and UC Irvine (65). In women's team scoring, UCLA won with 227 points, followed by Washington (179), California (176) and UC Irvine (70).

Individually for the UCLA men on the track, the Bruins had six winners -- junior Damian Allen in the 100m (10.64); senior Brian Fell in the 400m (46.99); sophomore John Hall in the 400m hurdles (52.95); junior Michael Granville in the 800m (1:49.37); junior Jess Strutzel in the 1500m (3:48.24, personal best) and junior Will Bernaldo in the 5000m (14:27.68, personal best). The Bruins also triumphed in both relays (4 X 100m-40.75; 4 X 400m-3:09.60).

Individually for the Bruin men in the field, UCLA had three winners-- senior Brian McLaughlin in the pole vault (16-0 3/4); freshman Scott Moser in the shot put (58-4) and senior Luke Sullivan in the hammer (210-5, personal best).

Individually for the UCLA women on the track, the Bruins had four winners-- senior Andrea Anderson in the 200m (23.98); sophomore Michelle Perry in the 100m hurdles (13.95); junior Christina Bowen in the 3000m (9:31.14, personal best) and junior Kelly Cohn in the 5000m (17:13.42, personal best). UCLA also won the 400m relay (45.24).

Individually for the Bruin women in the field, UCLA had seven winners-- freshman Tracy O'Hara in the pole vault (12-6); freshman Keyon Soley in the long jump (19-11 1/2); senior Kiesha Porter in the triple jump (39-0 3/4); freshman Chaniqua Ross in the shot put (52-7 1/4); junior Seilala Sua in the discus (201- 4) and hammer (179-0) and senior Kristin Ayers in the javelin (128-9, personal best).

Looking ahead, the Bruins will host their first home outdoor meet of 1999 on Saturday, April 3 at Drake Stadium, vs. Florida.
