Marcus Reed, the 1992 Western State Conference champion for Valley College in the men's 100 and 200 meters, will continue his collegiate track career at UCLA this season.

Reed, who also placed second in the long jump in the WSC championships, completed the requirements for his Associate of Arts degree at Valley last fall before choosing UCLA over USC.
