Johnson, Wright Win Titles at Pac-10 Championships

May 13, 2007

STANFORD, Calif. - California junior Alysia Johnson won the women's 800-meter run and junior teammate Ed Wright won the men's high jump on the final day of the Pac-10 Championships on Sunday at Cobb Track and Angell Field on the Stanford campus. The 16th-ranked Cal women finished in eighth place overall with 54.33 points, while the Cal men took ninth place with 56 points.

Arizona State won the women's side of the competition with 158 points, host Stanford was second (134.33) and UCLA was third (118.50). On the men's side, Oregon (114) won the team title, with Arizona State (111) second ad USC (110) third.

Johnson's winning 800 time of 2:01.74, an NCAA regional qualifier, is the second fastest of her career behind the school-record 2:01.48 she ran to win the 800 in the California Collegiate Challenge on April 28. Wright, meanwhile, tied his lifetime-best jump of 7-3 (2.21 meters), another regional qualifier, with his victory at Pac-10s.

Cal next competes in the NCAA West Regional May 25-26 in Eugene, Ore.

A full recap will follow.
