April 14, 2008
BERKELEY - Freshman Cherrelle Garrett was named the Pac-10 Women's Track Athlete of the Week, as announced by the conference today. Garrett earned the honor after her performances last weekend at the Big Meet. This is the first Pac-10 Track Athlete of the Week award for Cal in 2008.
Garrett was a three-time winner against Stanford last Saturday. She was victorious in the 100-meter dash, the 200-meter dash and ran the final leg of the first-place 4x100-meter relay. Garrett set a new personal best in the 100 meters with a regional-qualifying time of 11.51. She also set a new PR in the 200 at 24.01. The 4x100 relay clocked a season-best, regional-qualifying time of 45.03.
Cal has this week off before preparing for its third and final home meet of the season. The Bears will host the Brutus Hamilton Invitational from April 25-26 in their next competition.
