Johnson Posts Double Wins in the 200m and 400m at UCSD Invite

April 23, 2005

Sophomore Brandon Johnson led the Bruin men at the UC San Diego Invite on Saturday as he won the 200m and 400m races. Johnson's 400m time (46.81) was a lifetime-best and regional qualifier, while he ran 21.29 in the 200m.

The UCSD meet attracts some of the finest throwers in the world, and today was no different as some of the best were in attendance. Former Bruin John Godina threw one of the top marks in the world this year to win the shot put, 70-5, while several current Bruins excelled in the ring. Junior Jeremy Silverman threw a season-best 63-11 to place fourth, while freshman John Caulfield finished sixth with a toss of 61-3.50. In the discus, freshman Greg Garza placed 16th with a throw of 182-5, while Caulfield threw a lifetime-best 179-3 (old best 171-1) and Silverman threw a season-best 169-11. On Friday in the hammer, junior Andrew Ninow improved on his lifetime-best, throwing 193-10.

In other events, freshman Mike Haddan ran a season-best 1:51.61 in the 800m, placing fourth overall. Senior Mario Bassani placed second in the 200m in a time of 21.29. In the pole vault, freshman Dustin DeLeo jumped a lifetime-best 16-1.75.

In all, the Bruin men posted eight regional qualifying marks during the meet - Johnson in the 400m (46.81); Dave Murphy in the pole vault (16-7.50); Silverman in the shot put (63-11) and discus (169-11); Caulfield in the shot put (61-3.50) and discus (179-3); Garza in the discus (182-5); Ninow in the hammer (193-10).
