UAA track earns four top-10 finishes in California

UAA's track and field team recorded four top-10 finishes at Saturday's Steve Scott Invitational in Irvine, Calif.

Two came from Tevin Gladden. He placed seventh in the high jump after clearing 6 feet, 4.75 inches and took 10th in triple jump with a leap of 44 feet, 9.75 inches.

Two UAA women also cracked the top 10. Sophomore Jessica Pahkala shaved two-tenths of a second off her previous best 800 time, finishing eighth in 2 minutes, 12.38 seconds.

Gaynor Johansen's heave of 125 feet in discus was the best of her career and earned her 10th place.
