STANFORD, Calif. - Stanford sophomore Brianna Bain broke the school record in the javelin to highlight a victory for the Stanford women at the 119th running of the Big Meet, the Cardinal's track and field rivalry with Cal.

But in the end, the dual meet was a split decision at Cobb Track and Angell Field on Saturday. The Stanford women won for the third consecutive time, beating the Golden Bears, 102-61, but the Cardinal men had their six-meet win streak in the series snapped, 85-78.

Bain, the defending Pac-12 champion, had the nation's farthest throw among collegians this season with a 183-10 in the second round. The mark beat her own school record of 180-2 that earned her a runner-up finish at the 2012 NCAA Championships as a freshman.

Stanford associate head coach Michelle Eisenreich doesn't believe this raises the bar for Bain.

"We have some pretty high goals," Eisenreich said. "She's got a lot better throws in her once we back off training a little."

The meet also featured the collegiate debut of Stanford's Steven Solomon, the only freshman in the country who was an Olympic track and field finalist in 2012. Solomon, who was eighth in the London Games, won the 400 meters in 46.91.

Using the same strategy in the 4x400 relay, Solomon, a 19-year-old Australian, eased through the first 200 before accelerating through the turn to win going away. His split was 46.9 in anchoring the team of Spencer Chase, Loren Pilorin, and Luke Lefebure to victory in 3:11.80.

Solomon has competed in the world's biggest meets, but said he was nervous when taking the line for the first time at Stanford.

"Definitely," he said. "I had one of those sleepless nights. This is something I've been waiting for for a long time."

The sub-47 was a good start to the season for Solomon, whose best is 44.97. It was the third-fastest by a freshman in Stanford history. But, for Solomon, this wasn't the time to open it up and go for broke.

"Everything went according to plan," he said. "This was more about getting fit and getting strong, running controlled, and turning it over at the end of the track. The faster times will come. This meet was an example that our gameplan is working."

The highlight for Solomon was the finish of the 4x400. At the Big Meet, both teams line inside lines down the final stretch, creating a veritable tunnel to the finish line.

Stanford got strong legs from Pilorin and Lefebure to stay close, giving Solomon the baton about two meters behind. Solomon relaxed down the backstretch before making his move, and finished with his arms outstretched before screaming teammates and opponents.

"I've never had something like that before," he said.

Stanford's Kori Carter, the world leader in the 400 hurdles was a quadruple winner for Stanford, rallying the Cardinal 4x100 team (45.09) on her anchor leg, winning the 100 hurdles (13.28) and 400 hurdles (58.59), and anchoring the 4x400 (3:38.74).

Stanford had two other additions to its all-time Top 10 lists: Rebecca Hammar won the women's discus with a throw of  179-11 -- a personal record by eight feet -- to move from No. 7 to No. 4 all-time. And Jules Sharpe won the men's high jump at 7-1 3/4 to move to No. 5.

Geoffrey Tabor was yet another thrower to have a big day. The senior won  the discus at 187-1.

The Stanford women clinched the victory by the 14th of 19 events to take a 21-11 lead in the all-time series, and the Cal men clinched on the penultimate event, the triple jump, by taking first and third. The Bears now hold a 67-50-2 series lead.
