UCI ATHLETES LAUDED
UC Irvine's Dayne Comrie and Lauren Collins were chosen Big West Conference men's track and women's field athletes of the week, respectively, for the week ending Sunday.
Comrie was second in the men's 400 meters at the Northridge Invitational, finishing in 47.54 seconds. That mark is the eighth-fastest time in school history. The junior also finished third in the 200 in 21.75, qualifying him for the Big West Conference Championships in May.
Collins won the women's high jump at the Northridge Invitational with a leap of 5 feet, 8 3/4 inches. Her performance was enough to qualify her for the NCAA West Regional.
UCI's Amber Steen was the conference women's track athlete of the week for the week ending March 12.
Steen, a senior from Newport Harbor High, won the 800 meters at the Ben Brown Invitational. Her time of 2:12.96 was an automatic qualifier for the Big West Conference Championships and is three seconds shy of the qualifying mark for the NCAA regionals.
UC Irvine women's tennis player Becky Bernhard was named Big West Conference women's tennis player of the week for the week ending Sunday.
The sophomore extended her winning streak at No. 1 singles to five with victories against Nebraska's Kim Hartmann, ranked No. 63 in the nation, and Purdue's Hala Sufi. Both victories were in straight sets.
