Kenyon and Sullivan Raise Personal Bests in California Invite Heptathlon

April 20, 2001

AZUSA, Calif. - University of Oregon senior Jenny Kenyon and freshman Ann Sullivan recorded personal best scores in final day action at the California Invitational Heptathlon, held Friday at Azusa Pacific University.

Among the event's 27 finishers, Kenyon finished fourth overall with 5,046 points - 14 points better than her previous best from last year's Pac-10 Championships in which she took fourth. Sullivan followed in 11th place with 4,972 points - almost 400 points better than her March heptathlon debut at Linfield College (4,400). Missouri's Eli Somerfeldt won the event (5,223), edging Purdue's Angela Anoliefoh (second, 5,107) and Southern Utah's Kelly Miller (third, 5,064).

'Both the heptathletes made major steps today,' Oregon women's coach Tom Heinonen said. 'Jenny's next step is to get on the NCAA provisional list, and Ann is showing the promise is real.'

Kenyon's second-day marks were 17-11 3/4 in the long jump (5.48m), 99-11 in the javelin (30.46m) and 2:20.86 in the 800. Sullivan's second-day marks were 17-0 1/4 in the long jump (5.19m), 95-8 in the javelin (29.16m) and 2:28.02 in the 800.

Kenyon ranked third in the long jump and fourth in the 800, and Sullivan stood ninth in the long jump.

On the all-time UO heptathlon list, Kenyon maintained her sixth-place ranking, closing slightly on Kamala Kohlmeier (fifth, 5,100). Sullivan joined the top-10 list in 10th place, eclipsing former All-America javelin thrower Kelsey Stellick (4,759).

In the accompanying decathlon, the Duck men had initially entered redshirt junior Billy Pappas, but the Azalea, Ore., native did not travel to the event due to a minor injury.

The women's team will enter several other athletes Friday evening at the nearby Mt. SAC Relays in Walnut, Calif., including long jumper Amanda Brown and distance runner Hanna Smedstad.
