LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Following a solid effort on day one, the Cal State Northridge women posted a total of 98 points to win their first Cal-Nevada Championship in eight years Sunday at UCLA's Drake Stadium.
The Matador women won just one event at the championships, Lilyana Morejon's win in the 10,000 meters on Saturday, but scored well in enough events to claim the title by 15 points over Cal State Fullerton.
In Sunday's finals, Jasmine Cox took second in the 800 meters running a personal-best 2:10.75. Cox further lowered her best after running 2:12.58 in Saturday's prelims.
Also scoring for the Matadors on Sunday:
- Sierra Brooks ran 12.31 to finish eighth in the 100 meters (2 points)
- Whitney Hooks posted a mark of 45-11.75 in the shot put to finish sixth and earn four points.
