COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Camryn Rogers picked up a win in the women's weight throw competition as California track & field opened the 2021 indoor season at the Air Force Invitational on Friday.

It was the first action for Rogers since she won the NCAA outdoor title in the women's hammer throw back in June of 2019. She sat out the 2020 indoor season in preparation for the outdoor schedule and Olympics before both were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Rogers won the competition with a top throw of 21.08 meters (69-2), bettering her second-best all-time mark at Cal in the event. The Bears also got a second-place finish from Hakim McMorris in the men's long jump with a leap of 7.27 meters (23-10.25) and Sydney Reid jumped 5.80 meters (19-0.50) to take third in the women's event.  

Cal advanced 10 to Saturday finals in the sprints, led by Ezinne Abba, who smashed her personal record time and tied the Cal school record set by Antonette Carter in 2006 by clocking 7.33 seconds to take the top time of the day into the final. Deshae Wise advanced to two finals, posting a new all-time best in the 60-meter hurdles (8.36 seconds) for the second-best time of the day and ran the top time of the day (24.67 seconds) in the women's 200-meters.

The Bears swept the top three spots of the women's 200-meter prelims after Maisie Stevens (24.81 seconds) and Ezinne Abba (24.85 seconds) finished with the second and third-best times of the day.

On the men's side, Christian Catlin crossed the line in 6.83 seconds in the men's 60-meters to advance with the second-best Friday time. Henry Larkin also posted the second-best time of the day in the men's 400-meter prelims at 48.82 seconds.

McMorris opened the competition for the Bears on Friday morning by posting a new personal best in the men's high jump, clearing 2.00 meters (6-6.75) to take fifth-place in the event.
