BERKELEY - The Pac-12 Multi-Event Championships will be contested this weekend at USC, and the Golden Bears will be represented by junior Jaci Powell in the heptathlon.
2013 Best Cal Marks
Powell enters the competition ranked sixth in the conference with a score of 4,995 from the Cal Multis in March. She will be one of 10 entries vying for the league title.
A transfer from Golden West College, Powell won a pair of state junior college championships before making the move to Berkeley. She set a PR with a total of 5,191 points at the 2012 meet.
In addition to Powell, a select group of Bears will travel to the Sac State Open Saturday for a last opportunity to improve marks before the full Pac-12 Championships get underway next Saturday and Sunday.
