Bruin Alum & Incoming Athletes Post Big Results Over the Weekend

June 4, 2012

Bruin alum Jessica Cosby and two incoming freshman distance runners posted some very impressive performances over the weekend in various track and field meets.

Cosby had a huge day at the Prefontaine Classic in Eugene, OR as she broke the American Record in the hammer throw with a lifetime-best toss of 243-5 (74.19m), bettering the previous record of 242-4 (73.87m) set in 2005 by Erin Gilreath. Cosby finished fourth overall in the competition which featured the best hammer throwers in the world. That mark would have placed fourth overall in the 2008 Olympic Games. She now ranks 10th in the world. Cosby will look to qualify for her second Olympic Games at the end of June during the U.S. Olympic Trials.

Two of UCLA's incoming freshmen distance runners also had a big weekend as Nick Hartle and Alexander Monsivaiz both won state titles. Hartle, who is the Nevada Gatorade Athlete of the Year in track, captured four individual titles in the Nevada State Meet, placing first in the 400m, 800m, 1600m and 3200m. Monsivaiz out of Army/Navy Academy Prep School in San Diego won the California State Meet crown in the 800m.
