Cal U. sends three to nationals

Junior Aaron Dinzeo and freshmen Julie Friend and Summer Hill will represent California University at the NCAA Division II Track and Field Championships, which begin today in Allendale, Mich.

Dinzeo will compete in the 5,000- and 10,000-meter runs. He boasts the second-fastest time in the country this season and set the PSAC record in the 10,000 meters with a time of 28:40.88 seconds at the Stanford Invitational. Dinzeo also holds the seventh-best time in the nation in the 5,000 meters, 14:04.49 at the Penn Relays.

Friend was selected to the NCAA Championships in the 3,000-meter steeplechase after competing at the championships during the indoor season as a member of distance medley relay. She broke the school record in the steeplechase several times this season, most recently at the league championships when she posted a time of 10:51.43.

Hill holds the seventh-best time in the 1,500-meter run this spring and broke the school record in the event with a time of 4:25.92 at the Bucknell Bison Classic.
