UCLA's Drake Stadium will host the 2005 Pac-10 Multi-Events Championships on Saturday, May-7 through Sunday, May 8, featuring top women and men's athletes from Pac-10 conference schools competing in the heptathlon (women/seven events) and the decathlon (men/10 events). Admission is free for this weekend's competitions.

The No. 1 Pac-10 decathlete entering the championships is Oregon junior Andy Young (7,016/NCAA provisional qualifier). UCLA sophomore David Murphy is No. 4 on the current Pac-10 chart (5,702). UCLA's top decathlete, junior David Shortenhaus (6,217), is out with an injury.

Last year's decathlon champion, freshman Tommy Skipper, also the defending Pac-10 pole vault champion, earlier this season injured a knee (that required surgery) and he is not expected to compete.
