June 12, 2003
SACRAMENTO, Calif. - California senior Tim Bogdanof saw his collegiate career come to an end Thursday on day two of the NCAA Track and Field Championships at the A.G. Spanos Sports Complex. The Clovis, Calif., product finished 15th overall and seventh in heat two of the 110m hurdle semifinals with a time of 13.91.
Texas A&M's Chris Pinnock clocked the fastest time of the day (13.54) to win Bogdanof's heat. The top four runners in each of the two heats, plus the next fastest time, advanced to Saturday's final of the 110mH. The last runner to qualify out of the second heat ran a time of 13.87.
Wednesday, Bogdanof recorded a 13.73 in heat one of the 110mH to qualify for the semifinals. That time was the fifth best of the day. At the 2003 NCAA West Regional at Stanford, Bogdanof won the 110m hurdles preliminary in a personal-best time of 13.51, the second fastest ever in Cal's history.
The Bears have two high jumpers - freshman Teak Wilburn and sophomore David Glasgow - competing today in the qualifying round of the event. The competition began at 1:30 p.m. The school-record holder in the 10,000m, junior Girmay Guangul vies for the national championship in that event tonight at 9:40 p.m.
The NCAA Track and Field Championships, which are being hosted by Sacramento State, continue through Saturday, June 14. Cal doesn't have anyone slated to compete Friday, and hopes to have Wilburn and Glasgow in the high jump final Saturday at 4:30 p.m.
