UCLA/USC Dual Meet Begins, Ames Places Third in the Hammer Throw

April 25, 2003

UCLA junior Dan Ames placed third in the hammer throw as the UCLA/USC dual meet got underway Friday at West Los Angeles College. The remaining events in the Bruin/Trojan dual meet will be contested Saturday at Loker Stadium on the USC campus, starting at 11 a.m.

Ames, from El Capitan HS in Lakeside, scored one point for the Bruins, placing third with a mark of 196-8. Ames' personal-best of 198-9, set on April 12, is No. 6 on this week's Pac-10 chart and No. 25 on the collegiate list.

The Trojans picked up eight points in the event. First-place (five points) went to USC's Adam Midles, a freshman from Capital HS in Olympia, WA, with a mark of 201-7 and the Trojans' Michael Murray, placed second (three points) with a throw of 196-11.

Nonscorers included - fourth-place, UCLA redshirt freshman Jake Knight (187-1, personal-best, NCAA Regional Qualifier); fifth-place, USC's Harrison Lee (185-6); sixth-place, UCLA redshirt freshman Jeremy Silverman (177-10) and seventh-place, USC's Noah Bryant (172-5).

The Trojans take an 8-1 advantage (scoring for the meet is 5-3-1 for individual events and 5-0 for relays) into Saturday's remaining events in the dual meet. In this week's national rankings, USC is rated No. 3 and UCLA is No. 21. USC leads the overall series 39-30. UCLA won last year's dual meet at Drake Stadium (121-81) and had it's 22-year win streak snapped by USC in 2001, when the Trojans won the dual meet 82-81 at Loker Stadium.
