Track & Field Heads To Seattle For MPSF Indoor Championships

Feb. 23, 2011

The men's and women's track and field teams will travel to Seattle, WA to compete at the 2011 MPSF Indoor Championships this Friday and Saturday. Last season, the men won the team crown, while the women placed fifth.

UCLA heads to the meet with several athletes who will be vying for individual crowns including two of the top freshmen in the nation, weight throwers Alec Faldermeyer and Ida Storm. Both freshmen hold the top marks in the MPSF and rank in the top 15 nationally. Senior Ashlea McLaughlin will be in the title hunt in two events, the 400m and 800m, while senior Lindsay Rowe is favored in the 60m hurdles. Another senior, Jonathan Clark, heads into the meet as the favorite in the triple jump.
