BERKELEY – California track & field wraps up regular season indoor action at the Championships at the Peak Feb. 25-27 inside the Cadet Field House at the U.S. Air Force Academy. 

Several Golden Bears are looking to move into qualifying position for the NCAA Indoor Championships on March 12-13 in Fayetteville, Arkansas. 

Links to both the live stream and live results of the meet can be found on CalBears.com. The Bears are set to face their toughest competition of the indoor season to this point with Oregon and USC competing at the event, along with UNLV, Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, Air Force, Stanford, and Colorado State among other teams entered.   

Competition for Cal gets underway Thursday at 10 a.m. PT with Hakim McMorris entering his first heptathlon competition of the season. McMorris holds the third-best heptathlon total in California history (5,626 points) set at the 2020 MPSF Indoor Championships. 

The rest of the action begins at 8 a.m. PT Friday in Colorado Springs. The women's sprints group will be well represented, entering the week with the sixth-ranked women's 60-meters squad in the country. Ezinne Abba (7.33), Kennedy Williams (7.41) and Jenea Spinks (7.45) have all crossed the line with top-four times in Cal indoor history in the event this season.  

Deshae Wise is set to compete in the women's 60-meter hurdles after setting a new Cal indoor school record last week with a time of 8.28 seconds, breaking Kimyon Broom's time of 8.30 seconds set in 2010. Wise will also run the women's 200-meters, along with Abba and Williams.  

Christian Catlin has exploded onto the scene in his first action as a Golden Bear this season, tying for the third-fastest time in Cal indoor history by clocking 6.78 seconds in the men's 60-meters. He will compete in both the 60 and 200-meters this weekend. 

In the throws, Camryn Rogers enters the weekend with the No. 12 women's weight throw mark in the country to this point at 21.31 meters (69-11), currently in qualifying position for the NCAA Indoor Championships with a mark inside the Top 16. Josh Johnson looks to move into qualifying position in the men's shot put as he enters the week with only one meet under his belt this season. He'll be joined by Jeff Duensing and Shyann Franklin will compete on the women's side. 

In the jumps, Busola Akinduro made a mark in her first competition wearing the Blue and Gold, leaping to a lifetime best in the triple jump at 12.80 meters (42-0) to take second place and take over fourth on the Cal all-time indoor list on Jan. 23. Jared Gerdes looks to improve on his season-best in the men's long jump, along with Sydney Reid in the women's long jump.
