Cal Crosses Bay For Stanford Invite
BERKELEY – California track & field continues its outdoor schedule with the Stanford Invitational on Friday, April 2 and Saturday, April 3 at Cobb Track and Angell Field.
The meet will be streamed live via Flotrack. Links to both the live stream and live results are available on CalBears.com.
The Stanford Invitational has been contested since 1975 and normally it includes high schools and post-graduates. However, this year, it's collegiate only with a handful of postgraduates. Thirteen schools are represented.
Competition is split into separate sections on both days to accommodate public health spacing and protocols. The meet gets underway Friday at 3:30 p.m. with the field section, including men's javelin, women's hammer throw and women's pole vault.
Friday's evening section begins at 8 p.m. with track distance events, starting with the women's 3,000-meter steeplechase and men's/women's 5,000-meter runs.
Saturday competition opens at 9:30 a.m. with the women's discus, followed by track action at 10 a.m. with the women's 800-meters.
Camryn Rogers is set to compete in the women's hammer throw competition, her first time entering in the event since winning the 2019 NCAA outdoor national title 22 months ago in Austin, Texas.
Cal will be joined by Pac-12 schools Stanford, USC, UCLA and Washington, along with San Jose State, Utah State, Air Force and Iona, among others.
The Golden Bears are coming off a strong performance at last week's Aztec Invitational in San Diego, led by the distance squad.
The Bears swept the men's and women's 1,500-meters with new lifetime best times. Annie Boos clocked 4:24.41 to take the women's race and Garrett MacQuiddy crossed the line in 3:47.68 to win the men's race. Ben Harper also ran a new personal best of 3:49.94 to take third place on the men's side.
In the 800-meter runs, Cal took second in both races with Benjamin Micallef running a new lifetime best of 1:50.26 seconds in the men's event and Mina Anglero crossing the line in 2:10.50 on the women's side.
