Cosby Wins Shot Put and Hammer at UCSD Triton Invite

April 23, 2005

Senior Jessica Cosby won two events at the UC San Diego Triton Invitational as she posted the third-farthest shot put mark in the country on Saturday. Cosby threw a season-best and regional qualifying mark of 55-11.50 in the shot put, moving her to No. 3 on the national list. On Friday, Cosby also won the hammer, posting a throw of 206-11.

Junior Chelsea Johnson also had an individual win on Saturday as she won the pole vault with a mark of 13-7. Her mark was a regional qualifier but she has a season-best jump of 13-11.25 (Mt. SAC). Also in the pole vault, freshman Ingrid Kantola jumped a lifetime-best 12-5.50 to place third overall, qualifying her for the regional meet.

Senior Lara Saye continued to improve on her lifetime-best in the discus, finishing third to former UCLA Bruins Suzy Powell-Roos (204-7) and Seilala Sua (196-10). Saye's throw of 188-0 improved on her previous personal-best (187-5), moved her to eighth on UCLA's all-time top-10 list, and kept her at the top of the collegiate scene in the discus.

Sophomore Kamaiya Warren moved into the top-10 in the country as she threw a season-best and regional qualifying 54-5.50 in the shot put, placing second to teammate Cosby.

In the 800m, sophomore Jenna Timinsky placed third, dropping her season-best to 2:10.23 (old best 2:11.37). Freshman Claire Rethmeier placed third in the 1500m, running a UCLA best 4:33.46.

In all, the Bruins recorded nine regional qualifying marks in the meet - Cosby in the shot put (55-11.50) and hammer (206-11); Johnson in the pole vault (13-7); Kantola in the pole vault (12-5.50); Warren in the shot put (54-5.50) and discus (166-9, season-best); Reynolds in the discus (165-10); Danielle Smith in the discus (157-5, season-best); Saye in the discus (188-0).
