At the Virginia Tech Challenge, held at Rector Field House in Blacksburg, VA, Coach Robert Johnson led the Bruin jumpers to outstanding performances the past two days. Freshman Renee Williams, sophomore Sheena Gordon and senior Juaune Armon each came away with victories. The competition was also highlighted by several personal best performances.

Williams won the Long Jump Invitational with a personal best and NCAA automatic qualifying jump of 21-1.50 (6.44m). The mark is No. 6 on UCLA's all-time list. Her previous best mark, set last weekend at the United Heritage Invitational, was 20-6.50 (6.26m). Gordon won the high jump and tied her personal best by clearing 5-10.50 (1.79m).

Junior Candice Baucham placed third in the triple jump with a personal best jump of 43-4.25 (13.21m). The mark is No. 4 in school history, surpassing Jackie Joyner's mark of 43-4 (1985). Baucham is behind Gail Devers on the list, who is third at 43-8 (1986). It is the second weekend in a row that Baucham has jumped a personal best. At last Saturday's United Heritage Invitational, she jumped a then-personal best 42-9. Baucham also competed in the long jump invitational, placing sixth (19-3.50/5.88m).

Senior Sheena Johnson competed in the 60m hurdles. She had the fastest times in both the preliminary (8.38) and semi-final (8.16) rounds. In the final, she finished second in 8.29 behind Ebony Foster who won in 8.28.
