A small group of throwers, jumpers and vaulters will travel to La Jolla this Saturday to compete in the UCSD Triton Invitational in the final tune-up before the big dual with USC.
This weekend's competition will feature nearly 1,500 entries and more than 1,000 individual athletes. Among the schools represented including UCLA are Wisconsin, Tennessee,Kentucky, Stanford, Arizona State and Arizona, along with several schools from around the state, including Cal Poly, San Diego State and UC Santa Barbara.
Several of the top elite athletes in the country and world will also be in action including Bruin Alum Suzy Powell Roos and Jessica Cosby.
Most of the team will be resting up for next weekend's showdown with crosstown rival USC. La Jolla is known for good discus winds and the Bruin throwers will be looking to make full advantage, while jumpers and vaulters will look to improve on their marks as the outdoor season begins to wind down.
