Fresno, Calif. - Senior Sarah Goodlaw (Burbank, Calif.) set season and personal bests in the discus and javelin to help the Bulldogs to a third place finish with 178.5 points in a four-way meet with CS Northridge, CS Fullerton and Missouri. Missouri won the event with 198.5 points, followed by CS Northridge with 183.

Goodlaws throw of 151-11 in the discus was over three feet better than her previous mark and was good enough for first place. Goodlaw also took first in the hammer (169-5), shot put 44-10 3/4, and finished second in the javelin with a PR 136-11.

Senior Melissa Price (Kingsburg, Calif.) took first in the pole vault with a height of 13-0, and freshman Brooke Lankard (Visalia, Calif.) took second when she cleared a personal-best height of 11-6. That height now puts her alone in third place on Fresno States all-time list.
