Megan Lewis ran a four second seasonal best in an exciting race at the famed Hayward Field at the Oregon Invitational on Friday night improving upon her Big West leading mark. She now has a personal best of 16:28.28 and is #4 on the UCSB All-Time list. Lewis is currently ranked 29th in NCAA Division I competition.
For Kylie McCuen (Sr.) the 2005 Big West Track Athlete of the Year, she continued her '06 dominance as she finished 3rd at the Oregon Invite in 23.79. Although dipping under her personal best and own School Record of 23.88, it was in an illegal wind of +3.1 meters/second for record purposes. It did however, still meet one of McCuen's objectives in qualifying for the NCAA Regional Championships. McCuen continues to lead the Big West as Jasmine Winfield of LBSU finished 4th at Oregon in 24.07 and McCuen also ranks 47th in the NCAA.
