California track & field closed out its weekend with yet another standout day, posting a veritable cornucopia of impressive times and marks that included three all-time program bests, five podium finishes, 17 total personal records and an additional special milestone.
Most the Golden Bears competed at the Don Kirby Invitational in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where many of the day’s highlights belonged to the sprints and hurdles squad.
