Sunday at Mt. SAC

April 18, 2004

Walnut, Calif. - Sophomore Antonette Carter gave the Golden Bears two great performances at the Mt. SAC Relays Sunday. She won her heat in the 200 meter in 23.85 for the fifth-fastest time in Cal history. She then went on to run an 11.70 in the invitation 100 meter dash.

'We did a very good job competing with a mixture of international and elite open athletes,' assistant head coach Tony Sandoval said.

Joining Carter with an all-time performance was senior Sheni Russell who moved up to No. 3 from No. 5 on the Cal Top 10 with her personal best 177-09 mark in the discus.

In addition, sophomore Osarhiemen Omwanghe won the women's 100 meter hurdles in 13.64.

In invitational events, senior Bruce Giron finished eighth in the triple jump with a 50-06 (15.39m) mark and senior Rhuben Williams finished 14th in the shot put with a 59-04 (18.08m) mark.

The Golden Bears performed well in the relays, with the women's 4x100 meter relay team (sophomore Tiffany Johnson, junior Shannan Hawes, Omwanghe and Carter) seizing second in 45.47 and the men's 4x100 meter relay team (senior Nick Mazur, freshman Darren Woods, junior Toby Atawo, and senior Ricci Dula) taking third in 40.58.

The Golden Bears will send 10 athletes to the Penn Relays this weekend while the remainder will stay home to host the Golden Bear Qualifier.
