BERKELEY, Calif. - More records were broken as the Fresno State men's and women's track and field programs closed out competition at the Brutus Hamilton Open & Invitational Saturday. Bulldogs appeared in 14 different invitational events.

"All-in-all it was a really good weekend," said head coach Scott Winsor.

After setting a personal record in the 400m dash yesterday, junior Jordan Walker helped the men's 4x100m and 4x400m relay teams to season-best times. The 4x400m team won the event over California and Utah State with a time of 3:14.45. The 4x100m team took third after finishing in 40.96 seconds.

The women's 4x100m relay team was also successful, finishing second overall with a time of 46.51 seconds in the finals.

In the field, sophomore Derek Oliver and junior Kory Stephens set personal records in the javelin throw. Oliver hit the 60.52m mark and Stephens hit 56.01m, respectively.

Senior Jennifer Rose threw a personal best as well in the javelin. Her 36.48m mark demolished her previous season-high by nearly seven feet.

Senior Emmanuel Jackson also had a personal best. He went 6.80m in the long jump.

The Bulldogs return home to rest up before the Western Athletic Conference Outdoor Championships (May 8-11).

"We have next week off," said Winsor. "So we have a weekend off to get healthy and get our minds and our bodies where they need to be for the conference meet."



Last year, both the men and the women finished fourth at the WAC Championships.
