Cal junior Malaina Payton finished 10th in the women’s long jump at the NCAA championships at Hayward Field in Eugene, Ore.

Payton leaped 20 feet, 7 inches on her second attempt, missing by 3/4 of an inch of advancing to the finals with nine others.

Cal’s 4×100-meter relay team of Julis Travis, Tom Blocker, Chad Jones and Dash Oliver finished seventh in its heat and 22nd overall with a time of 40.68. The Bears were competing in the 4×100 relay at the NCAA meet for the first time since 1977.
