All-Americans All Over NCAA Championships
June 11, 2004
AUSTIN, Texas - Cal senior Sheni Russell earned All-America honors today, finishing 10th in the country in the women's discus. Russell, the school record-holder in the event, threw the discus 174-11 (53.32m) at Mike A. Myers Stadium at the University of Texas. Russell's record stands at 181-02, set in April at the Triton Invitational.
The preliminaries of the women's discus were set for Wednesday but were cancelled due to stormy weather. As a result, today's event ran like a normal meet with several flights and then the top nine competitors advancing to a final round. At No. 10, Russell missed the final round by only four inches.
On the track, seniors Ahmad Wright and Deanna Slaton each finished 24th in the men's and women's 400 meter hurdles, respectively. Wright took the course in 52.46 seconds. Slaton, No. 2 all-time at Cal, finished her event in 59.91 seconds.
