Justin Romaniuk, Dan Schaerer Win at UCLA Invitational
April 9, 2005
Austin, Tx - The Cardinal men's sprint medley relay team raced to victory on Friday night at the Texas Relays at the University of Texas.
Other highlights from Austin included an NCAA Regional qualifying time of 44.65 (second-best all-time at Stanford) in the women's 400 meter relay. That time advanced the Cardinal to the finals of the event on Saturday night.
Even though the Stanford women's 1,600 meter relay team did not advance to Saturday's finals at the Texas Relays, their time of 3:36.27 was an NCAA Regional qualifying time and sixth-best in school history.
At the Rafer Johnson/Jackie Joyner-Kersee Invitational at UCLA's Drake Stadium on Friday, Justin Romaniuk took top honors in the 1,500 meters with a time of 3:50.09 while Dan Schaerer won the discus (176-0, 53.65m, NCAA Regional qualifying throw). A second place finish by David Vidal in the 3,000 meter steeplechase (8:53.58, ninth-best in school history) resulted in a regional qualifying time.
Competition at the Texas Relays, the Rafer Johnson/Jackie Joyner-Kersee Invitational and the Brutus Hamilton Memorial Invitational continues through Saturday.
