Davis, Simon Post Wins at Stanford Invite

STANFORD – California finished out the Stanford Invitation with a number of strong performances across the board Saturday, including wins by Ashtyn Davis in the men's 110-meter hurdles and Peter Simon in the men's shot put.

Davis, who had the top qualifying time in Friday's prelims, came through in 13.83 seconds, almost four-tenths of a second ahead of the rest of the field.

Simon was just as convincing the shot put. He posted his winning mark of 62-1.75 on his opening throw, and each of his four legal marks were longer than anyone else in the competition.

Among others competing Saturday were Karsten Wethington in the men's triple jump and Ashley Anderson in the women's triple jump, who both posted runner-up finishes. Wethington went a wind-aided 48-11.75, while Anderson was the top collegian and came within an inch of her personal best with her mark of 42-3.50.

In Friday's late action, Robert Brandt posted the No. 2 mark in school history in the men's 10,000 meters, crossing the line in 28:48.38.

The Bears return to the Stanford campus next Saturday for the annual Big Meet between the Bay Area rivals.
