Bruin Women Win NCAA Indoor Track Championship
By: UCLA Athletics

March 12, 2000

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) -- UCLA, spurred by Seilala Sua, winner of the shot put and second in the 20-pound weight throw, won its first women's indoor title with 51 points, 10 ahead of South Carolina. The Bruins' last NCAA track title was in 1983 at the outdoor meet. Their previous best finish indoors was second in 1995, three points behind LSU. The past two years, the Bruins also were second outdoors.

The title was the 80th NCAA team championship for UCLA, which ranks No. 1 nationally. In December, UCLA also won an NCAA team title in men's water polo.

The UCLA women led after the first day, with the help of victories by Tracy O'Hara in the pole vault and Keyon Soley in the long jump, then clinched the title with a 1-3-6 finish in the shot put Saturday.

Sua, the outdoor champion in the shot put and discus, won the shot with a heave of 56-8. Christina Tolson was third and Chaniqua Ross placed sixth.

"I've never been on a team that won a national championship," said Sua, a senior. "I just wanted to win and contribute to the team. That's my first indoor championship. Our team was looking for a lot of points, and I just wanted to give them those points."
