LA JOLLA, Calif. -- UC San Diego's Veronica Bradley grabbed the lead in the heptathlon competition through four of seven events Thursday in the 2014 California Collegiate Athletic Association Championships at Triton Track & Field Stadium.

Bradley, a junior ranked 19th in the nation in the heptathlon, 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”).

San Francisco 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. Third place after the first day is Erin Zwinger of Cal Poly Pomona, also nationally ranked.

The afternoon kicked off with Black taking first in the 100 hurdles, crossing the line with a time of 14.82, the only athlete to run a sub-15. The new mark is one of three lifetime bests for Black on the day.

In the high jump she finished tied for third, clearing the bar set at 1.54 m (5-0.5"). In the shot put she placed 10th with a throw of 9.02m (29-7.25"), also a personal record. She wrapped up the afternoon winning the 200m sprint finishing with a career-best time of 25.56, two-tenths of a second faster than Chico State's Kristen Brunk who finished second in the event.
