Senior Yoo Kim, junior Craig Everhart and the Distance Medley Relay will represent the UCLA men's track and field team as they travel to the 2005 NCAA Indoor Championships in Fayetteville, AR this weekend (Mar. 11-12).

Kim currently ranks No. 2 in the nation in the pole vault with a lifetime-best mark of 18-4.50. Kim broke his own Korean National Record two weeks ago (Feb. 26) at the MPSF Indoor Championships and just missed the UCLA indoor school record of 18-5.25. This weekend, Kim will battle with Oregon's Tommy Skipper for the NCAA title and will have one more opportunity to break Mike Tully's school record.

Everhart heads to Arkansas with the No. 9 best time in the nation in the 400m (46.36) and will surely battle for All-American honors this weekend. Two weeks ago at the MPSF Indoor Championships, Everhart defended his 400m title, winning in a time of 46.59. The DMR team of senior Jon Rankin, Everhart, junior Martell Munguia and senior Ben Aragon currently ranks seventh in the nation (9:35.45) and should contend for All-American honors as well.

The men's track and field team has held out several of their top athletes, like sophomore Brandon Johnson, from competing in the indoor season to focus on a successful outdoor campaign. After an impressive first outdoor meet (UCLA Invitational, March 5), the Bruins are poised for an impressive spring season.
