Throwers Shine at CSUN Invitational

March 19, 2005

While the majority of the UCLA men's track and field team took the week off from competition to prepare for the upcoming Stanford and Jim Click Invitationals, the throwers went to work, competing at the CSUN Invitational on Saturday.

Freshman Greg Garza won the discus with a lifetime-best throw of 185-4 in the discus to lead a Bruin sweep in that event. Garza improved on his previous lifetime-best by nine feet (old best, 176-0, 3/5) and his mark will likely rank in the top-10 in the nation. Fellow throwers Josh Rider (165-6), Jeremy Silverman (164-9), Jason Rider (163-7) and John Caulfield (162-5) rounded out the Bruin sweep in the discus. Both Garza and Josh Rider's marks were regional qualifying throws. Ely Dial just missed a regional qualifying mark in the javelin, throwing a season-best 200-1 to win that event.

Also competing at the CSUN Invite on Saturday were freshmen Dominique Easterling, Joel Tuosto and Matt Stollenwerk. Easterling (6-6) and Tuosto (6-4) finished second and third in the high jump, while Stollenwerk ran 1:57.59 in the 800m.
