March 27, 2010
Los Angeles, Calif. - Cal State Fullerton junior Jameena Hunt broke her week-old school record in the women's hammer throw and senior Carolyn Ellis won the women's 5,000 meters Saturday to highlight the Titans' efforts on the first day of the California/Nevada Track & Field Championships at UCLA.
Hunt fouled five times but had a measurable throw of 180 feet, 5 inches on her second attempt to best her mark of 178-2 set last week at USC. Ellis won her race in 16:51.18.
Yomaira Hernandez ran third in the 10,000 meters at 36:20.41.
Julius Joseph placed sixth in the men's hammer with a best throw of 180 feet, 3 inches.
"The women had a good first day," said Head Coach John Elders. "We should be pretty competitive in the team scoring tomorrow."
