SEATTLE, Wash. - The Long Beach State track and field team kicked off the 2012 Flotrack Husky Classic with four athletes competing Friday evening at Dempsey Indoor.
Steven DeCastro notched a lifetime-best 15:05.09 in the men's 5000-meter run. That mark puts him at No. 6 on the 49er all-time list.
Kayla Kamaka tied for fourth in Section 1 of the women's pole vault, clearing a height of 11-10.50. She had three solid attempts at a new lifetime best of 12-04.50. Kamaka currently ranks fourth in 49er history at 12-01.50, which she established two weekends ago at the Air Force Team Challenge.
"Kayla was really aggressive in this competition," head coach Andy Sythe said. "She is making great strides in her mental and technical approach to the event. It is only a matter of time before we see a big breakthrough from Kayla."
In the women's 200m, Emily Cooper had the 10th-best collegiate time and finished 11th overall as she clocked in at 25.35. Annie Randall also placed 16th in the 5000m, crossing the finish line with the eighth-fastest time in school history (18:33.45).
Long Beach State returns to Dempsey Indoor tomorrow for the second and final day of the Flotrack Husky Classic. Both the track and field events begin at 9 a.m.
