Continuing to compete against four-year competition, the Cerritos College men's team has shown that they can post times and marks to be in contention for a good finish.

The team will compete in the UCLA Legends Invitational this weekend.

The day before, sophomore Kelly Brown (Wilson Magnet, NY HS/College of the Sequoias) competed in the 200 meters and saw his time of 21.55 put him in third place.

High jumper Destin Flucas (Cerritos HS) cleared 1.83 meters, which was good enough to earn him a tie for fourth place, with the 4x100-meter relay team of Christian Shakir-Ricks (Murrieta Mesa HS), Stokes, Brown and Kawika Jones (Green Valley, NV HS/Green River, WA College), turning in a fifth place time of 40.62.
