SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - Several Tritons from the University of California San Diego men's and women's track and field teams competed at the All On the Line Qualifier for one last chance to improve or grab NCAA qualifying marks, Saturday at Westmont Track and Thorrington Field.
In the pole vault, senior Chrissi Carr won the event with an NCAA qualifying performance of 12'6.25”. She was just off her UCSD school record and automatic qualifying mark of 13'1.25”, set earlier this season. Carr is the only Triton to officially book her ticket to the NCAA Championships in Tampa.

Junior Paul Doan had the top finish in the 100-meter dash, crossing the line in 10.83. Doan was slightly off of his record-setting, NCAA provisional qualifying time of 10.53 set earlier this year.
