The California track and field team had a strong second day at the Texas Relays today, as numerous Golden Bears qualified in the day's prelims for the finals tomorrow. Cal got strong performances from some of its athletes who have already qualified for NCAA regionals.

Among some of the Bears who qualified for tomorrow's finals were sophomore Kimyon Broom in the 100-meter hurdles, freshman Cherrelle Garrett in the 100-meter dash and the women's 4x100-meter relay consisting of Broom, Garrett, junior Kandi Bonty and freshman Kayla Dixon.

Broom placed sixth overall in the 100-meter hurdles with a time of 13.56, which tied her personal best for that event.

Smith and Beneby also qualified yesterday for the final in the 400-meter hurdles.

Junior Katie Morgan led the Bears on pole vault. Morgan took fifth overall with a mark of 3.85m (12-7.50). Freshman Cyrena Giordano and Allison Stokke tied for sixth with a score of 3.70m (12-1.50).

On the men's side, junior Jordan Paul qualified for tomorrow's 110-meter-hurdle final. Senior Craig Kent, already a regional qualifier in the shot put and the discus, took fourth in the discus section B with a mark of 54.52m (178-10).
