June 12, 2004
AUSTIN, Texas - Cal sophomore Teak Wilburn placed No. 7 in the nation in the high jump at 7-02.50 (2.20m). With the finish, Wilburn becomes a first-team All-American after being No. 12 in the country as a freshman last season. He also contributed two team points to California's effort.
Cal junior Rhuben Williams finished No. 11 in the country in the finals of the men's shot put with a mark of 57-09.75 (17.62m). Williams earned All-American honors for the first time after finishing 26th in the event last year.
'We had a little bit of a rough meet, but we are pleased with having four All-Americans - Brooke Meredith, Sheni Russell, Teak Wilburn and Rhuben Williams,' Cal Director of Track & Field Chris Huffins said. 'We are a young team and we bring all of our people who scored back next year.'
The NCAA Track & Field Championships is also a team-scored meet. California finished No. 34 on the women's side with four points and No. 59 on the men's side with two points.
