Flagstaff, Ariz. - Jameena Hunt, Ciara Short and Lauren Williams each won her specialty to lead Cal State Fullerton's women's indoor track and field team to a third-place finish Saturday at the NAU Team Challenge.
Hunt won the weight throw with a school record mark of 60 feet, 9 1/2 inches (her old mark was 58 feet, 2 1/2 inches); Short won the 200 meters in 24.23; and Williams captured the 60 meter hurdles in a school record 8.43 (her old mark was 8.64). Fullerton also did well in the 60 meter dash with Chazz Evans running second (7.78) and Krizia Apelar third (7.83). Williams won her preliminary heat in 7.77 but scratched the finals to concentrate on her hurdles event.
Apelar also was fourth in the 200 while Evans was seventh. Williams, Short, Evans and Amber Scott, in that order, teamed up to finish second in the 4x400 relay in 3:54.15 behind Arizona State, which won the team scoring. ASU had 42 points to 34 for Northern Arizona and 24 for the Titans.
Fullerton next competes in the Husky Classic in Seattle on Saturday.
