Complete Results

California wrapped up action at the NCAA Championships Saturday afternoon at Drake Stadium in Des Moines, Iowa. The Cal women finished tied for 22nd place with 11 points. The Golden Bears were led by Katie Morgan's national-championship performance in the pole vault yesterday, garnering 10 points with her NCAA title.

In today's competition, Cal only had senior All-American David Torrence running in the final of the 1500 meters. Torrence placed 10th overall, clocking a time of 3:43.97.

The Cal men earned one point and tied for 71st in the national championships when junior Martin Maric garnered All-America honors as he took eighth in the discus yesterday.

With the 2008 season now finished, a select few Cal athletes, including Alysia Johnson, head to Eugene Ore., for the U.S. Olympic Trials from June 26-July 6. The Bears will be vying to earn a spot on the U.S. National team and go on to the Olympic Games later this summer in Beijing, China.
