Marie Kimumba took fourth in the 400 meters on Saturday and Christy Chavira was fifth in the 1500 in the Southern Cal Track & Field Prelims at San Diego Mesa College.

Kimumba ran a personal-best 57.03 and moved closer to the No. 2 spot on the Vaqueros' all-time list. She also placed sixth in the 200 in 24.90, which is third on the Vaquero Top-10 chart and just .08 off the school record. Earlier in the year, she ran the 2nd-fastest time in school history (24.89).

Chavira, a freshman from Righetti High, had another big drop with a PR of 4:52.35 in the 1500.

Alana Ochoa was ninth in the shot put (11.54m). She'll compete in the discus next week, based on her winning performance in the WSC Championships.

Marie-Aime Cochet, a freshman from Rennes, France, took 10th in the hammer with a personal-best 42.16 meters (138-3¾), which lands her No. 3 on the all-time chart. She previously qualified to throw the discus at the Southern Cal Finals.

San Diego Mesa will host the Southern Cal Championships on Saturday, starting at 9 a.m.
