National Record Broken At Brutus Hamilton

April 9, 2004

Berkeley, Calif. - Cal throws coach Jennifer Joyce broke her own Canadian national record in the hammer today at the Brutus Hamilton Invitational with a 217-07 (66.33m) throw. Joyce set her former record of 214-00 (65.23m) as a senior at Cal two seasons ago.

'This is a step in the right direction: a step towards Athens,' said Joyce, an Olympic hopeful and Canadian national team member. 'I've made a lot of changes in my life in the last year and this one feels like a long time coming.'

Coached by Joyce, freshman transfer Giulia Urlando finished fifth at 181-02 (55.31m), her season-best and another post-season qualifying mark.

'Giulia just started school this semester so she has had less time to train. She is coming together and getting close to her PR again,' Joyce said. 'All of our freshmen are doing a great job.'

Alongside Urlando, redshirt freshman Carrie Johnson threw a 159-00 (48.47m) for 13th place and redshirt freshman Lauren Dorsey threw 130-02 (36.69m) in 17th.

In the men's hammer, senior Rhuben Williams threw a personal record 204-07 (62.37m), for a third-place finish and another post-season qualifying mark. Freshman Zak Thomas threw a 179-01 (54.59m) to finish sixth.

In the women's 3000 meter steeplechase, sophomore Lauren Barbieri ran a 12:13.59 to finish fourth and sophomore Lisa Sandoval ran 12:25.16 to finish fifth. In the women's 5000 meter, freshman Brooke Wells finished sixth at 19:13.85.

All remaining events occur tomorrow at Edwards Stadium. The field events start at 10:00 am with the men's pole vault and men's javelin. Running events commence at 11:00 am for the men's and women's 100 meter dash preliminaries.
