TEMPE, Ariz. - Despite posting a collection of personal best performances and several NCAA qualifying marks, the California men's and women's track and field teams wrapped up the 1999 Pac-10 Championships Saturday evening with the same team results as a year ago.

The Bear men tallied 59.5 points, compared to 55 a year ago, but still finished eighth, ahead of Washington (52). Meanwhile, the Bear women almost doubled 1998's 21 points, but their 41 points still placed them at the bottom of the conference in ninth, four points behind eighth-place Arizona State (45). UCLA women repeated as conference champion with 160.5 points, while the USC men dethroned UCLA with 164 points.

On the men's side, the best overall performance Saturday came from freshman Marlon Beaver. The Newark, Calif., native earned 10 total points for Cal for his third-place finish (six points) in the 400mH in a PR of 52.34 and his fifth-place finish (four points) in the 110mH (14.34).

Also of note, Phillip Pipersburg finished fifth in the 100m in 10.47, tying teammate Jason Manly for eighth on Cal's all-time performer chart. Freshman Jerriod Mack cracked the 50-feet mark in the triple jump, placing sixth with a PR of 50-00.5.

For the Bear women, the highlight came from their 4X100m relay, which garnered third-place in 45.67, the second fastest mark in Cal history. Sophomore Reynda King became only the fourth women in Cal history to hit the 40-feet mark in the triple jump. King's fifth-place jump of 40-4.25 ranks fourth on the Cal performers list.

Also of note, Senior Elissa Riedy took third in the 1500m for the second-consecutive Pac-10 Championships.

NCAA individual event selections will be announced Saturday, May 29. The NCAA Outdoor Championships take place June 2-5, in Boise, Idaho.
