Jeanette Bolden and the #15 women's track and field team will travel to Palo Alto this Saturday and Sunday for the Pac-10 Championships. The field events begin at 12:00 pm on Saturday at 10:00 am on Sunday. Running events begin at 2:00 pm on Saturday and 12:00 pm on Sunday.

Last season, the Bruins finished fourth overall and had three Pac-10 Champions - Chelsea Johnson (PV), Nicole Leach (400mH) and Rhonda Watkins (HJ). This season, the Bruins are poised for another top finish as several athletes are in the running for Pac-10 titles. Favored to win individual crowns this weekend are Nicole Leach and Rhonda Watkins as they rank No. 1 in the conference in their respective events.

This will also be the last opportunity for the athletes to qualify for the West Region Championships, or improve on those marks already qualified. So far this season, UCLA has picked up 31 qualifying marks. The Bruins have 23 marks ranked in the top-8 in the conference, and 14 that rank in the NCAA's top-25.
