LA JOLLA, Calif. - The 2014 California Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Championships got underway at Triton Track & Field Stadium on the campus of UC San Diego Thursday with the first half of the decathlon for the men and heptathlon for the women.

UCSD’s participation was highlighted by Veronica Bradley leading the heptathlon competition through four of seven events. The junior turned in three personal records and one season-best mark among those four events, totaling 2925 points to out-distance nine other entrants. She was first in the high jump (5’4.25”), second in the 100-meter hurdles (15.13), fourth in the 200 (26.22) and fifth in the shot put (33’10.75”). SF State freshman Ashley Black is second with 2833 points. Bradley had 2736 points on the first day a year ago en route to a final placement of fourth.

Casey Buck was another one of the competitors Bradley left in her wake, as the Triton freshman sits in seventh with 2628 points. Her best effort was tying for third in the high jump (5’0.5”).

At the midway point of the decathlon, redshirt freshman Dan Golubovic, UCSD’s lone participant, is in third out of eight with 3366 points. Golubovic held the top spot in both the shot put and the high jump. He posted a toss of 36’11.75” in the shot, a personal record by almost three feet. Golubovic then leapt 6’4.75” for maximum points again. He rounded out his day by timing a lifetime-best 53.16 in the 400. Cal Poly Pomona junior Mike Hollis leads the decathlon with 3439 points, with sophomore teammate Kyle Goodenough right behind him at 3424.

The CCAA Championships continue with day-two action on Friday beginning at 10 a.m. with more decathlon and heptathlon. The individual field events start at 12 p.m. with the final of the men’s hammer throw. Preliminaries of the women’s 1500 mark the first track activity at 2:30 p.m. Two track finals will conclude the second night with the women’s and men’s 10000 meters at 5:40 p.m. and 6:25 p.m., respectively.
