WALNUT CREEK, CA - California's Dana Lawson was named the Pac-10 Women's Field Athlete of the Week for April 23-30.
Lawson led the way for Cal, assisting in its second-place finish at the Cal-Nevada State Meet. Lawson won the discus with an NCAA provisional qualifying mark of 173-0. The mark was a career best and ranks No. 4 on the Bears all-time list. The senior from Clayton, Calif., also placed second in the shot put and fourth in the hammer. Her multiple placings garnered a total of 23 points for the Bears, more than 25 percent of their total team points.
