Cal State Northridge sophomore Cheree Hicks took advantage of breezy conditions Saturday, throwing the discus a school-record 188 feet, good for eighth place in the UC San Diego Invitational. The mark crushed Hicks' school record of 180-2 and led to her selection as the Big Sky Conference women's field event athlete of the week. Aretha Hill of the University of Washington won with a U.S. collegiate record of 215-3, with UCLA's Suzy Powell second at 213-5 and Seilala Sua third at 209-8.

Gerhard Berger had the best news Saturday at Monte Carlo as drivers finished practicing and qualifying for today's Grand Prix of Monaco. "Nothing happened today," said Berger, who spoke openly of retiring after the deaths of Ayrton Senna and Roland Ratzenberger during the San Marino Grand Prix weekend two weeks ago. That seemed to overshadow Michael Schumacher's record-breaking qualifying run. Schumacher, in a Benetton-Ford, won his first pole, driving the 2.06-mile street course in 1 minute 18.

UCLA sophomore Seilala Sua won her second consecutive NCAA discus title Wednesday at the NCAA Outdoor Track and Field Championships at Buffalo, N.Y.

Sua's victory was worth 10 points in the Bruins' bid to end Lousiana State's 11-year reign as women's champion.
