STANFORD, Calif. - University of California track and field athlete Chloe Jarvis finished fourth in her heat of the 800-meter run with a personal-best time of 2:05.12 to qualify for today's semifinals at the USA Track and Field Championships. Stanford hosts the championships at Cobb Track and Angell Field through Sunday.

Jarvis, who led the Golden Bears in the 800m this season, has continually improved throughout the season. A 2003 NCAA qualifier, Jarvis' best time from a year ago was 2:18.87. Her new PR of 2:05.12 is the third-fastest in Cal's history.
