LAFAYETTE – Head coach Lance Veazey didn�t sign-up Louisiana�s Ragin� Cajuns for the 2006 Alumni Gold track meet expecting to finish near the top of every event. In fact, what Veazey wanted out of the meet was to see if his team could show enough improvement to give the Cajuns coach a positive outlook for the 2006 Sun Belt Conference Track Championships.

Mission accomplished.

At least 10 different Cajuns earned impressive marks, with several posting season-best efforts.

�I�m very proud of the effort we received,� said Veazey. �This gives us some momentum heading in the our conference meet.�

The meet, hosted by Louisiana State, featured several unattached competitors that turned in Olympic-like performances. Lolo Jones ran the women�s 100 meter hurdles in a stadium-record 12.85, while Erica Bartolina set a new stadium record in the women�s pole vault with a distance of 14-01.25.

The Cajuns Andree Bonvillain finished six in the women�s pole vault, smashing the school record with a throw of 11-11.75.

Other female standouts included; Casey Brown, who won the 3000 meter steeplechase, Chiara Obey with a season-best 15.00 in the 100 meter hurdles, Gabriella Jones with a season-best 12.37 in the 100 meter dash, Kioloni Readeaux with a season-best 37-10.75 in the triple jump, Amy Doucet with a season best 121-02 in the javelin and Jasmine Collins with a season-best 2:17.96 in the 800 meter run.

LSU�s Xavier Carter, the NCAA Indoor Track Athlete of the Year, posted the most impressive men�s performance, running the 100 meter dash in a time of 10.12. The Cajuns Michael Istre finished tied for eleventh in the event with a personal-best time of 10.78.

Other top men�s efforts included; Christopher Burgess� 14.78 time in the 110 meter hurdles, Tony Vaccarella�s leap of 6-07.50 in the high jump, Herman Clark�s 54.76 time in the 400 meter hurdles and Istre�s 21.60 time in the 200 meter dash.

The Cajuns finish the regular season on April 29 at the ULM Invite before returning home to host the Sun Belt Championships May 12-14.
