The men's track and field team opened up the indoor season on a high note as the Bruins won the NAU Team Challenge and picked up three NCAA qualifiers in Flagstaff, AZ.

In all, UCLA tallied seven event wins as Bo Taylor, Nelson Rosario, Jonathan Clark, Casey DiCesare, Steven Norton, Stan Griffin and Kevin Craddock posted individual wins. Craddock (60m hurdles), DiCesare (pole vault) and Greg Woepse (pole vault) each picked up NCAA provisional marks in their respective events.

DiCesare had a big day as he cleared 17-7 to win the vault. That marked bettered his previous indoor-best by seven inches (17-0). He also led a Bruin sweep of the top three spots as Woepse placed second (16-6.75) and Johnny Quinn was third (16-6.75).

Rosario won the long jump with a lifetime-best mark of 24-0.75. He also finished fourth in the high jump with a clearance of 6-8.75. Clark won the triple jump with a mark of 49-5.75 and finished third in the high jump with an indoor-best of 6-8.75.

Craddock, who missed the NCAA Indoor meet last season due to injury, and subsequently redshirted the outdoor season to recover, won the 60m hurdles race with an NCAA provisional time of 7.88.

Taylor won the shot put with a toss of 56-11.50.

The sprinters had a solid day as six lifetime-best marks were achieved. Stan Griffin won the 200m contest with a personal-best of 21.65. He also ran a lifetime-best in the 60m, placing ninth with a time of 6.92. Karlton Rolle was second in the 200m with a lifetime-best mark of 21.66 and tapped on another personal-best in the 60m, finishing fifth with a top time of 6.85. Freshmen Randall Carroll, Sheldon Price and Maxwell Dyce also had a solid competition. Carroll was fifth in the 200m (21.98) and eighth in the 60m (6.89), Dyce was sixth in the 200m (22.02) and seventh in the 60m (6.88) and Price was ninth in the 60m (6.95) and 10th in the 200m (22.32).

Steven Norton won the 800m with a time of 1:54.34.

The men won the team title with 54 points, while Long Beach State finished second with 33.

A handful of women also competed in Flagstaff. Dayna Hill posted two lifetime-best performances to highlight the Bruins. She finished fifth in the triple (36-10.25) and 10th in the long jump (17-4).
