Stanford, Cal Split at Big Meet, release from David Kiefer, note by Larry Eder

| 0 Comments
The Big Meet, now in it's 119th year, is a classic track & field duel between Stanford University and University of California-Berkeley. Cal and Stanford duel have many who savor the event. I have fond memories of watching the meet and enjoying when it came down to the 4 x 400m, a proper ending to a fine meet. 

Thanks to Stanford's David Kiefer, one of the hardest working in the world of SID associates. If others want to send us info on track and field for runblogrun.com, send to [email protected]

STANFORD, CAL SPLIT BIG MEET

 

Bain's school record highlights Stanford women's victory

 

STANFORD, Calif. - Stanford sophomore Brianna Bain broke the school record in the javelin to highlight a victory for the Stanford women at the 119th running of the Big Meet, the Cardinal's track and field rivalry with Cal.

 

But in the end, the dual meet was a split decision at Cobb Track and Angell Field on Saturday. The Stanford women won for the third consecutive time, beating the Golden Bears, 102-61, but the Cardinal men had their six-meet win streak in the series snapped, 85-78.

 

Bain, the defending Pac-12 champion, had the nation's farthest throw among collegians this season with a 183-10 in the second round. The mark beat her own school record of 180-2 that earned her a runner-up finish at the 2012 NCAA Championships as a freshman.

 

The meet also featured the collegiate debut of Stanford's Steven Solomon, the only freshman in the country who was an Olympic track and field finalist in 2012. Solomon, who was eighth in the London Games, won the 400 meters in 46.91. Using the same strategy in the 4x400 relay, Solomon, a 19-year-old Australian, eased through the first 200 before accelerating through the turn to win going away. His split was 46.9 in anchoring the team of Spencer Chase, Loren Pilorin, and Luke Lefebure to victory in 3:11.80.

 

Stanford's Kori Carter, the world leader in the 400 hurdles was a quadruple winner for Stanford, rallying the Cardinal 4x100 team (45.09) on her anchor leg, winning the 100 hurdles (13.28) and 400 hurdles (58.59), and anchoring the 4x400 (3:38.74).

 

The Stanford women clinched the victory by the 14th of 19 events to take a 21-11 lead in the all-time series, and the Cal men clinched on the penultimate event, the triple jump, by taking first and third. The Bears now hold a 67-50-2 series lead.
