Track Shows Right Stuff at Irvine

    The UCSD track and field team competed at the All-Cal Championships at Irvine on Saturday. A number of athletes earned NCAA qualifying marks at the event.

    Rob Ewanio was the star for the men in the throwing competition. He logged a school record in the shotput with a distance of 54 feet, 3-1/4 inches.

    The throw qualified Ewanio for the NCAA Division II championships.

    Ewanio also finished second in the discus and the hammer throws.

    Also for the men, James Nielsen blazed to a first-place finish in the 1500-meter run, an NCAA Division II national qualifying run.

    On the women’s side of competition, Elizabeth Tsu has had a stellar season this year and continued to run well for the Tritons at Irvine.

    Tsu finished third in the 200 and 400 meters.

    She also anchored both of the women’s relay teams, the 400 and 1600 meters, which each finished third.

    Also for the women, Jackie Vu cleared a height of 11 feet, 1 inch in the pole vault. That height is good enough for a NCAA Division II National Championship qualifying leap.

    The NCAA Division II National Championships will be held at the end of May.

    Next up for the Tritons is the Benny Brown Invitational on Saturday at 9 a.m. in Fullerton.
